In some states throughout the Midwest, the ice-fishing season for walleyes and northern pike is coming to a close, or has, in fact, already closed. If you live in one of those areas, now is not the time to hang up the ice-rods and put the shelter and auger in storage. There are still some very good opportunities for ice-fishing action.
As far as bass tournaments go, they don't get any bigger than the Bassmaster Classic. And I'm not just saying that because I won last year, either. But look around the industry; read the magazines and the websites and you will see that success is often measured by what happens during the Classic.
Can bass learn? Do they remember their experiences with lures? Can they apply their knowledge to lures they have never seen before?
To watch the average bass tournament, the outcome is so often decided on who finds the best stretch of bank. But what happens when the shallow bite isn't there? Where do you go when the fish have closed the bank?
In all those ball sports, the ability to make the pitch, shoot the basket, sink the putt, or thread the ball between two defenders when all the chips are down, the money on the line, and the pressure on is what separates the men from the boys, the professionals from the amateurs.

Shorter days, cool temperatures and buck fever go a long ways toward calming many an avid angler’s desire to put the boat in the water and go fishing for trophy bass. But for everyone who already has the tarp over the boat and the rods and reels in the closet, know this: autumn – especially mid-November to mid-December – offers some terrific opportunities to catch bass. In fact, it may be one of the best times of the year.
You know fall is here when you see the leaves starting to change, the cooler breezes blow through and comfortable temperatures take the place of summer's stuffy heat. A lot of people are thinking about where to hang their deer stands. But if you refuse to put away the rod and reel and park the boat like me, you're out there trying to figure out how to catch a bass during the fall transition.
When life deals you lemons, make lemonade. The guy who formulated that tidbit was probably thinking of one-time nagging little problems. I doubt he had in mind being buried with a whole crop of lemons year after year. But that's exactly what bass face each year with the coming of winter another round of massive lemon drops.
If you respool your reels as much as I do, I hope you stocked up on some extra fluorocarbon line recently because it's summer and you're going to need it.
