Hidden Dangers of Bass Fishing

I saw this excellent video the other day and had to share it.  If you think bass fishing is not a dangerous sport yo need to see this and learn from it!

Backlashes Suck!

If you use a baitcaster reel, you have probably experienced the backlash or "bird nest".  If you haven't, you will! These are extremely annoying and I have been known to express my annoyance with these situations in a rather loud manner!  I saw this video with some tips that I plan to try next time, because as much as I hate to admit it- there will be a next time.

Crappie Time!

Despite the name of this blog, I love catching anything that swims!  In this part of NC, the largemouth bass is King and the most sought after species.  I do enjoy going after crappie and bluegill at this time of year.
Last week we went to a small pond in search of some of these small and fiesty fish!  My son caught this nice crappie in his very first kayak fishing trip.  I was more excited than he was!  I caught about 6 and had fun watching my boy paddle around, he did great.  We used some 1/8 oz Roadrunners and small in-line spinners, both favorites of panfish.  Another fun time!
