All I got to say is WOW!!! I picked up this technique while I was in Texas fishing for spooky bedding bass, and I have been able to apply it to Smallmouth fishing and Largemouth fishing with so many different conditions and variables to take into consideration. I have caught fish on rocks, wood, deep drop shot, under boat docks and sunken trees, I’ve nailed'em site… Continue
Mr. Clay Dyer is about the most inspiring individual I have ever seen. His birth defects have never held him back from doing anything that he wants to do. I can learn a few things from this guy...
I was sitting at home feeling sorry for myself because work is slow, starting to feel myself fall in a rut. I turned on the TV and started checking my regular channels (ESPN, ESPN2, VS., FSN SOUTH) and I see a guy fishing on a boat, with no legs and half of one…Continue
fished for about 3 hours
no strikes until around 6:30-7:15
switched from a pumpkin senko wacky-rigged to a booyah swimming jig
caught 3 within 10 casts
biggest was about 15 feet from shore
hit right after a 3 second pause
it was 3lbs 13oz
So for spring break instead of going to soak up some rays on the coast somewhere I, instead, went to my cabin on Lake of the Woods. It was a blast fishing was slow but we caught some nice walleyes that we could keep and threw some big ones back. All in all a great time!

Just click the link below, join Squidoo, build a lens, submit it to the group, and tell the world what you know about bass fishing!… Continue
I had the opportunity to meet this guy a little over a year ago. It was right after he was DQ'ed in a tourny for failing to turn on his live well.
At a boat show here at the Raleigh Fairgrounds, there was a Bass tank with the front of a Triton Bass boat mounted at the top of one end.…
Ok, I'm making this post for all of you beginner or novice fishermen (and women) that need a little help with their knots.
I'm going to guess that there's a few seasoned folks out there too that could use a little brushing up on their knot knowledge. We've all been in a boat with a buddy before and been too afraid to ask for knot help.
For those of us that live in the north, this is actually one thing we can do at home to practice and get ready for… Continue
I have been checking out all of your photos and stories and the site is great. I am heading to Saint Petersburg Florida on March 16 thru April 5th. I would love to try and do some bass fishing while I am there. I am mostly into shore fishing as I do not want to spend a fortune with a guide or renting a boat.
Does anyone know much about ponds or rivers in the Saint Petersburg and surrounding area?
I see a lot of photos of people catching some good bass in small… Continue
I have the photo above posted on my page. A bunch of dead Largemouth Bass on a stringer. Not surprisingly, I have been very happy with the response.
ALL NEGATIVE! Negative feedback is what I was hoping for. Bass fishing is a great outdoor activity/sport but conservation is paramount! We all need to do our part in conserving the fish population in our lakes,ponds,rivers etc...
The spots my wife and I have gone to for more than 20 years in the Gogama, Ontario area have become to built up and busy. We are looking for a new lake/lodge to explore and stay for two week periods a couple of times a year. We also fly in, primitive,our own equipment, tent, etc., camp on an island for about 5 days late in August. In both cases we are looking for simple, back to nature type experiences with walleye.
Would appreciate any suggestions.

Just wanted to give you all a heads-up on a great new fishing forum; TAC: The Angling Center. I have been on a lot of fishing forums, but this one is hands-down the best I have seen. Here is a link to the home page and remember - you heard it here first. TAC: The Angling…Continue
With the warm up this past weekend i was able to get out on my favorite local river and do a little fishing. I checked the gauge height on the usgs website, the flow was still low, meanig the melting snow hasn't begun to raise the rvier level, which usually happens when i want to fish this river, so i figured the water should be fairly clear. I drove over to my first area to find still to be locked with ice, so up river i went to another area where there was a little more current, and found the… Continue
Just wanted to invite y'all to visit my blog ~ HARDKOREFISHING.COM. Like getREELed, it is just getting up and running, but I think you'll like it. Once our "hard water" softens it will be updated regularly with tournament news, rants, raves, reviews, photos, video, and so on.… Continue
This was a great day. It was super cold that day , I believe -20! We didn't use a hut we just drank a lot of cheap beer and it seemed to help us forget how cold it was. We were just packing up all of our rods and I had one more rod to get and as soon as I looked at the hole my rod slammed into the ice.
I ran as fast as my drunken legs would take me and I fell about 10 times for a 30 meter run! HA HA .
When I finally go to the hold I reeled in my line and grabbed… Continue
This one circulated via email a couple of months ago, and I'm not sure what to think of this. All you pike fisherman out there have likely never caught a pike as big as he was reeling in when the big one hit.
Can anyone verify this photo. How big were each of those fish?…
Attended the outdoor show in London for the day with my fishin' buddy Jesse! Picked up a Quantam Catylist Pti spinning reel and some Rapala DT 4 Crankbaits. one firetiger, one minnow color and one red with yellow belly.
Looked at some tracker aluminum fishing boats for purchase.
All and all a great day.
I would recommend attending this show especially for people into the new kayak fishing craze.
Had lots of fishing equipment from various vendors.
Hi. My name is John; John Doggett. Recently in an effort to modernize my self I have adopted the nickname of J-Dogg but it wasn’t always so. When I was about as long as a good sized Musky my father nicknamed me “Hornet”. If you could ask him why he would tell you that when I wanted something I would buzz around and buzz around and buzz around until I got it and what I wanted the most in those days was to go fishing. I was born on the outskirts of Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1947. Since the…
