Fishing season is here, or at least a lot closer, throughout the Midwest. Are you going to try to go fishing more often this year? If so, that increases your odds of catching a big fish, a true trophy. The more we go, the better the odds of catching one of those fish that memories are made of.
A lot of factors can determine how many fish we’ll catch through the ice. Color is important: So is lure size. How the bait is attached to your line can be a consideration.
Their backgrounds are varied, their experiences and expertise, too; though each day finds them thinking about the same place. Lake Hartwell, site of this year's Bassmaster Classic, is never far from their minds.
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.
There is perhaps no more reflective issue in fishing than the subject of pain. Not so much ours but that of the fish. Do fish really feel pain, and if so how much do they feel? Do they scream in agony at a good hook-set, or do they feel no more than a potato does when being cut up for French fries?

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. The same is true for bass fishing, particularly tournament fishing, largely because of the way bass are made.
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.
