I have never been shy about how much I love bass fishing in October. For a guy who loves to tie a crankbait on the end of his line, I can’t imagine a better time to be on a lake than the weeks leading up to Halloween. […]
People who know me well understand that June is probably my favorite month to be on the water, trying to put big bass in my boat. I think it’s just about everybody’s favorite time, because it’s a month when you can catch fish many different ways. They’re really chewing, and you can catch a lot of fish. […]
Most people who know bass fishing understand that I feel most comfortable when I’ve got a crankbait tied on. So when bass go really shallow in the spring, that makes things tough on me, but anyone who likes fishing crankbaits can still catch plenty of fish.
A lot of fishermen approach February as a good month to go to boat shows and look at all the newest boats and fishing tackle, but some years, you miss out on a lot of good fishing by staying off the lake.
I do a lot of deer hunting in December, and there’s plenty to do around Christmas, but I always make time for a couple of days in the bass boat, because it’s the one month when I can catch several different species of fish, the way I like to fish, without having to run all over the lake.
