Welcome to FishCraze :) This blog is about one thing and that's fishing. Bass fishing, freshwater fishing, inshore fishing, saltwater fishing. If it swims I'll try to catch it:)

First lunker

Here's my son's first fish over 5. It weighted in right at 6 pounds.

This fish was caught pre spawn on a main lake point on a Banditt Flaxx crankbait in pearl.

Fishing this past weekend

Well, My son and myself went sat to a local lake and the wind just about blew us all over the place. We were using a aluminum boat and it's hard to control it with a trolling motor. After a few hours and 1 small fish we called it aday. It's our 3rd trip to this lake and still haven't put anything together:( I know it's got some big bass because last march 8th(2004) we were there and saw dozens of large bedding bass. This year the water temp is behind what it was last year and we saw none on bed.

Sunday, tried another lake about a hour south that is full of large bass and this is the best time to fish for them. The wind again was a factor and it was hard to control the small boat. We ended up with a handful of small bass, biggest one on a spinner bait about 2lbs. At least we caught a few:) The weather is about to break out down here in Bama and the bass will be in full force in the shallows. I'll be out there all weekend looking for that monster gal. Haven't decided where, might have the boat fixed and if that's the case we'll head to the lake to see if the spotted bass are where they should be this time of the year. I'll let y'all know for sure.

thanks and tight lines

March 5th at Pickwick lake north alabama

Got up at 1:45(after hitting the sack at 11:30 and 2 bottles of wine at dinner for my freinds B-day ) headed up to B-ham to meet my partner and continued on for almost 3 more hours and got to the landing at 5:20. We only had 4 boats fish this one(that would hurt me later:) Got put in and went to the first creek right down from the park. Started fishing the ledge in the mouth my partner got a hit right off the bat and landed a 4# sauger that bit his CB in half:) after just a little while I got a nice 2 1/2 LM on a C-rig, spent the next several hours in the creek with a few other boats. Threw CB,SB, and jigs for a while with a couple of shorts to show. The water was pretty clear in this creek so I then went to a light line and spotsticker jig and junebug senko type worm. Pitching it into cover and started getting bit some and got 3 more keepers in the boat, by 10 was looking for that 5th and final fish to make a limit:) We decided to try some other spots up the lake and left, by then we had 20-30 mile per hour wind and that is NO fun in a bassboat, we took one 3ft wave over the bow and it soaked me to the bone, no fun at this time:( After fighting the wind and losing the trollling Batteries we went back to our first creek and found no more than 10-15 boats in it to try to get out of the wind. We then heading back to the landing an started fishing around the boats and boat slips in about 7 ft of water, I got several bites and finaly caught the 5th and 6th keeper(culled) fish for a limit. Weighted in 5 came in second. Becasue of the low boat turnout, we only paid 1 place BUT I had a great time and caught a bunch of fish. I can't say enough about light line(p-line floroclear) with spotsticker and yum dinger worms(MM saw what they do when he was down last year) I really believe I can catch fish just about anywhere and in any condition with it. My partner now knows about them. count for the day, me- 6 keepers, 4-5 throw backs,4 white or hybid bass and one big drum partner-huge sauger, couple throw backs. great day on Pickwick, guess I'll have to wait another day for that first smallmouth:) Can't wait to fish again:)
