How one pro uses his spinnerbaits

December 5th 2013 19:17
Here's an article I found outlining the use of spinnerbaits.
spinnerbait


Granted, this blog has addressed spinnerbaits before but, they're not my "go to" bait although a lot of anglers swear by them.



I can't say I've never caught fish on them but when you think of the old adage, "...all lures have caught fish somewhere and someplace," I have to wonder if the odds are finally going my way. Many people use spinnerbaits as a "search bait" but, I have a preference for crankbaits.

Alas, I'm just a working stiff who wets a line on the weekend. Here's some advice advice from touring pro Todd Faircloth.




Remember to take the hooks outta yer pocket before ya sit down!

Cliff Pace
With only four fish instead of the allotted five, Cliff Pace managed to edge out all other anglers to be crowned champion of the 2013 Bassmaster Classic.

Needing over 8 pounds of fish, Pace finished with 11 pounds, 8 ounces to better second place Brandon Palaniuk who finished with 15 pounds, four ounces on five fish. Three day totals are what matter in fishing tournaments and Pace ended his weekend with 54-12 on fourteen total fish while Palaniuk had only 51-8 with fifteen fish.

AOY at the half way point

May 10th 2012 19:38
With a new scoring system, this year's Angler of the Year race is at the half way point and it may be a good time to see how things are shaping up.

Randy Howell is leading the pack with 385 points. That may seem like a low point total half way through the season but, as stated, a new point system is in play.

Chris Lane wins Bassmaster Classic

February 27th 2012 04:07
Chris Lane
Thanks for the pic ESPN!
It may be Oscar Night for some people but, Chris Lane won his first Bassmaster Classic earlier today. Lane won the 42nd Bassmaster Classic with a three day weight of 51 pounds and six ounces and beat out runner up Greg Vinson for the title by less than three pounds. The Guntersville, Ala. angler nearly doubled his career earnings with the $500,000 first prize and at only 36 has plenty of time to repeat as winner.


Things looked good for Vinson until Lane walked on stage and went to the scales. It should be noted that Lane was the last angler to take the stage.

Bassmaster Classic is this weekend

February 24th 2012 23:24
fishing rod
There may be frost on the ground where you are but, the fishing season is back in gear. This weekend, Feb. 24-26 is the date of this year's Bassmaster Classic in the warm waters of Shreveport-Bossier City, La.

The big question with any contest of this magnitude is, Who's gonna win? The guy to beat is defending champion Kevin VanDam who has won four Classics and is making his 22nd consecutive appearance. Following him is '98 winner Denny Brauer, making his 21st Classic appearance. Maybe Skeet Reese or Alton Jones will add another Classic to their previous victories?

KVD NOT leading AOY

April 26th 2011 15:24
It may come as a shock to some people but Kevin VanDam is not leading Angler of the Year standings this year. In fact he's back in third position.

Alton Jones
The leader for now.
Before you think there may be a changing of the guard, remember there haven't been that many competitions yet. 2008 Bassmaster Champion Alton Jones is at the top with 1096 points and second place Terry Scroggins has amassed 1040 points so far and VanDam is lying back with 982 points.

Of all the sports where there are men and woman competitors, fishing is one sport that levels the playing field and allows men and women to compete equally.

At least in theory.

Bass tip video

April 18th 2009 04:38
It's hard to live in the States and not get caught up in bass fishing excitement. He's a video featuring professional anglers talking about Lucky Craft lures.

Even if you're not a bass angler, you can get some ideas if you make your own lures or enjoy the underwater footage.

Pros hitting the water in 2008.

February is usually a down month for me as far a sports are concerned. Not this year. Aside from the fact that the Super Bowl was played Feb.1 , this weekend, Feb. 20-22 is the Bassmaster Classic which will be on Louisiana's Red River.

It's hard to talk about flipping without mentioning pitching. It seems as if you do one, you almost invariably do the other!

Here's a really good video from YouTube featuring professional angler Timmy Horton explaining both techniques in just a few words.

More pros in the Anglers' Corner

February 11th 2008 05:29
Since it's February and tournament action begins in less than two weeks, there are some more professionals I want to profile before the competition begins. Of course, every year there's some Cinderella Kid who comes out of nowhere and garners all the attention the sport has to offer! With my luck, that will happen again this year and all the people I've mentioned on here won't even finish in the Top-50!

Dean Rojas

Dean Rojas is an angler we could ALL learn from! One of his primary strengths is sight fishing which is simply watching shallow swimming fish and then observing as they come up and take the bait. I LOVE doing that and I think it's an easy way to learn about fish species and what you do to affect the bite.

Hangin' out in the Anglers' Corner

February 4th 2008 03:13
You look at anglers who are on tour right now, learn a little bit about them and sometimes you can understand how they ended up on the cast for cash circuit. SOMETIMES...

Larry Nixon
Larry Nixon
Pro angler Larry Nixon definitely fits the mold. Before turning pro he was a fishing guide. Back in 1977 Nixon joined the tournament trail and began one of the most successful fishing careers around. Since that time, Larry has won two Angler of the Year titles, 14 tournaments, fished in 23 Bassmaster Classics in addition to winning the Classic in 1983.

A family in the Anglers' Corner

The old saying "The family that plays together, stays together" really applies to the Mize family. Not only do you find Mom and Dad, Lucy and Jimmy, on the professional tour, their children, Melinda and Matt also followed their steps and entered the cast for cash circuit.

There's an obvious question here. Have they competed against each other? Certainly. Although, you'd have to think it makes for "interesting" conversation at the dinner table!

2007 Angler of the Year--Skeet Reese

January 21st 2008 07:44
Fishing is usually like chess--more fun to do than watch, but the way the 2007 Bassmaster tournament trail played out made us remember it's still a sport!

Family rivalry in the Anglers' Corner

January 14th 2008 03:59
There aren't very many sports that allow a father and son to go head to head in competition but fishing is one of them. Denny and Chad Brauer are two anglers who are able to teach us a thing or two!

The elder Brauer, Denny, began professional competition back in 1980. Since that time, he's achieved over a dozen first place finishes, been named Angler of the Year and won the Bassmaster Classic in 1998.

Baseball, cricket, or football: name the sport and it's probably going to take a few players to accumulate 60 years of experience.

On the other hand, there are two anglers on the professional tour who have 60 years of experience between them. Rick Clunn and Zell Rowland have probably forgotten more about fishing than most of us will ever know!
