  1. Thanks for the great site. I appreciate all the info in our area which means much more to me than a guy in Alabama or Florida. I’m partly retired and this past year discovered bass fishing. It can be overwhelming but you do a great job explaing things and it has saved me time, money and unnecessary frustration figuring it out on my own. Thanks!
    I’m crazy about kayak fishing and also bought a new 20′ fishing pontoon last year and I’m looking forward to lots of adventures on the water. Keep it up!

  2. Hey JB, I am new to your site but have been trying to learn bass fishing for a couple of years now. I am a weekend warrior, and I just don’t get to have the time on the water like most bass fishermen do. Just the little bit of info that I have gained from your site has taken me to what I feel is the next level.

    My little brother and I fish a lot together. He definitely seems to have more experience than I for he has fished his lifetime. Needless, to say he kicks my butt a lot, but with your knowledge that you have provided I have been able to go out with a whole new outlook on the sport. You have really opened my eyes and answered many of the questions I have had and have searched for throughout the internet with no avail.

    For one my new favorite bait color is green pumpkin purple flake who knew color selection could be as easy as looking at the bottom pff….wasted all this time. I have always been a watermelon guy in our clear lakes and thought green pumpkin is just for cloudy days.

    Just recently, after the weather let up from a cold front. Well, I got my gear and left the house with a new confidence. I called my brother and told him I was going fishing he stated, “you aren’t gonna catch anything”. I told him yes I am and I would keep him posted. I took the new tactics and strategies that you provided in your site and just hammered em’ or Kraked em’ like you like to say. 🙂 I ended up catching 7 bass from the shore a personal best from the what used to be zero fish after a cold front. Needless, to say my brother was shocked that a rookie like me could have such results. Ha ha! Thanks, JB, for being so honest to bad there isn’t more fisherman like you.

    1. I love it! Thanks for the great feedback. Nothing better than breaking the mainstream and slaying em anyway. Stay Stoked!
