1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    IMG_0063.JPG IMG_0219.JPG Thought you gents might enjoy some bass photos. Most of these guys come off of a Texas rigged craw either from the bank, canoe, or yak. Here's a few from the past few weeks...

    Nice fish! What part of the country are you in (AKA: spawn or post spawn)?

    Post spawn. We have a lot of spring fed rivers here and that seems to lead to a pretty early spawn (February-Mid April)

    Gotcha. Being in the south, our spawn is pretty early too. I've never had the chance to fish the largemouth spawn, as I don't have any type of watercraft to make it out on the lakes. I do mostly wading and bank fishing in smaller rivers for SMB.

    Hopefully I can fish the spawn next year.

    I like fishing Pre-spawn the best, but there's never really a bad time to get out there. I do a lot of fishing out of an inflatable kayak, they can be had pretty cheap.

    I always get keyed up waiting for the next morning to get here. Especially after putting fresh line on.
