If there’s one piece of fishing apparel no angler is ever without, it’s a hooded sweatshirt. Typically adorned with some fishing company logo, most of us have at least a few to rotate in between heavy washings to rid the fabric from fish slime.
In the world of bass fishing, whether fishing around a small farm pond or a professional angler competing at a high level, when struggles happen, sometimes we need to instruct like a coach, explaining to stick to the fundamentals.
Most experienced river walleye anglers have several presentations rigged as the mood of early-season walleyes changes daily, if not hourly. Any early-season river walleye angler should be prepared to be versatile and run through a lot of presentations, ultimately letting the fish reveal what they want. What follows is a list of winning spring river walleye presentations, all involving live bait, although hair jigs, blade baits, stickbaits, and soft plastics are early-season options, too.
When B.A.S.S. Elite Series pro and Wisconsin native Jay Przekurat began his first year as an Elite angler in 2022, he set a personal goal to do well enough to end each tournament by cashing a check and maintaining his spot in the top half of the angler standings.
For most anglers, once fall fishing ends, their boats are pulled inside for the winter, and their rod and reels get a break until the first signs of spring. However, winter fishing can result in larger-than-average bass catches. It only takes the angler paying attention to what bass are doing and figuring out how to lure them out of their winter hiding spots.
Watching in the distance, I noticed several boats travel into the small creek arms to do most of their fishing. It wasn’t long before I heard the bass splash coming out of the water. From where I was standing, I could see a gentleman reeling in a famous Table Rock largemouth bass. As my weekend at the lake continued, my assumption of where the bass could be found was validated.
I received my first fishing rod, reel and accessories from my mom and dad as a birthday gift some 35 years ago. A VHS tape titled Fishing for Beginners came with the kit. All these years later, I still clearly remember one segment of that video.
Two predictable things happen when the peak of summer arrives and temperatures rise. The first is that fishermen lose some of their enthusiasm, and the second is that fish can become harder to find. Anglers take heart; it’s no big mystery.
I often fish the lakes or many rivers near my home in Missouri. During summer, however, I often take advantage of the longer daylight hours to fish in nearby ponds. No matter how often I fish a local pond, it always takes me back to my childhood when I first began fishing with my father and two siblings. These local farm ponds are where I learned to fish, made my first angling memories, and fueled my passion for bass fishing.
