21ae7bfa-db4e-4653-82b5-99f92554986b[1]I don’t know if he saw the same irony that I did, but I just got off the phone with Dave Precht, former editor of Bassmaster Magazine, once the primary and dominant word on bass fishing.

Instead of trying to convince him of a story idea for the publication, I was asking about something new tech: the B.A.S.S. News app.

Now the magazine is fine, (more…)

Keeping track of historic bass fishing data has never been one of my strengths. I lived and covered some of the western scene, but chasing the ardent, younger cadre of anglers now on the water, there’s just not a lot of time to gather up so many past moments. However, that doesn’t mean the work won’t be done.

TV GUIDE lists Tami's show...

One of the favorite figures (er, personalities) on the western bass fishing scene, Tami Curtis, has hit a landmark for her work on her own TV show, Fish ‘n 4 Fun: recognition where it matters.  And to prove it, she just sent along a picture that says it all–her show has hit the iconic TV Guide.

If you really want to know what’s new in bass fishing, it might be good to know what’s old. And while mere history doesn’t resonate with everyone, the fact is, everything we do today is based on something someone else has likely forged, observed or refined. A prize part of the game is the heritage and the steps that have led us to where we are today.

For that reason, the recent publication of a one-of-a-kind collectible, “A Gathering of Eagles–The History of Bass Fishing in the West” is a piece with both sentimental and historic value. And now you can get yours.

Originally developed for an intended gathering (more…)

Like the results or not, the Top 40 Bass Anglers List is the most talked about blog topic every year on this site. From it’s unveiling each fall in time for the Bass-A-Thon at Anglers Marine in Anaheim and for a couple of subsequent weeks, it leads all topics in the number of website “hits.” This year, some of that conversation was captured by freelance writer and San Francisco Examiner contributor, Jody Only, who covered the Bass-A-Thon. See her video here.

You’re going to be gone fishing this weekend, so hope you don’t mind a little vacation by the site-master. You’ve all figured out the latest world record hoax, have thoroughly discussed the unethical nature of fishing (and receiving awards) in your own tournament circuit, and have lauded the nature of the latest issue of magazine. For those reasons, I think it shouldn’t matter (more…)

Not exactly in the bass fishing bulls-eye, a couple of things are on the docket in May, here at SoCal’s largest natural lake.
