Thumbs as rough as 80 grit sandpaper, at least for the successful bassers!

Big motors mounted on pieces of plywood wink

More logos on their shirt than a NASCAR driver smile

$300 sunglasses, visors, glittery fiberglass boats, and ridiculously priced rod and reel combos all for chasing what are essentially oversized (heck, often enough even undersized) sunfish :P

mainbutter, you bring up a good point. I often think to myself how crazy I am (I know I'm not the only one) in terms of the things I do just to chase around a little green fish...

I throw these lines at a good friend of mine who is a die hard bass guy over cocktails during our BWCA trips:

Bass guys are not smart enough to figure out the walleyes.

There are pills you can take that can cure that attention deficit disorder that causes the need to randomly cast something at every overhanging tree limb.

Green carp, brown carp.. they are both easy to catch.

Bass... the NASCAR of fishing

I actually like to fish for bass evry once in a while. Heckling bass guys is more fun however.

Walleye guys arent in good enough shape to fish bass all day!

bass guys are reaching into the tackle box every 5 minutes

walleye guys are reaching into the beer cooler every 5 minutes

Ditto what Sledneck say's...all my walleye fishing buddies are overweight and out of shape. Hey we may be on to something here, a new weight-loss fad.

you might just be a bass fisherman if...

1) you have a power worm dangling from your rear view mirror because you think it makes a good air freshener.

grin

2) your $50,000 bass boat's trailer needs new tires so you just "borrow" the ones off your house ... cool

i'll try write it in good bass fisherman language as best i can so you could understood it nice, k? laugh

Boudreaux been fish'n down by de bayou all day and he done run outa night crawlers. he be bout reddy to leave when he seen a snake wif a big frog in his mouf.

he knowed dat dem big bass fish like dem frogs,so he decided to steal dat froggie. dat snake, he be a cotton mouf water moccasin, so he had to be real careful or he'd git bit. he snuk up behin' dat snake and grabbed him roun de haid. dat ole snake din't lak dat one bit.

he squirmed and wrap hisself roun' Boudreaux's arm try'n to git hisself free. but Boudreaux, him had a real good grip on his haid, yeh.

well, Boudreaux pried his mouf open and got de frog and puts it in his bait can. now, Boudreaux knows dat he cain't let go dat snake or he's gonna bite him good, but he had a plan. he reach into de back pocket of his bib over-hauls and pulls out a pint a moonshine likker. he pour some drops into de snake's mouf. well, dat snake's eyeballs roll back in his haid and his body go limp. wit dat, Boudreaux toss dat snake into de bayou. den he goes back to fishin'.

a while later Boudreaux dun feel sumpin' tappin' on his barefoot toe. he slowly look down and dare wuz dat water moccasin - wif two more frogs!

this one is old.. basss for those who cant catch walleye and dont care what their fish taste like.. the only reason i go for bass is to fill the frien pan! ummmm SON with that fleet farm batter.. otherwise id say there is nothing to bass fishin besided fore arms to randomly cast into the weeds.. my trophy catfish just ate your trophy bass..

really why do you chase after these american carp?? i mean you hardly ever bring home any bacon, spend $100 on everyfish, need new sinkos cuz the firts 2 mm of it are missing, sit on your modified skuishy stump all day stumped cuz you cant figure out what to throw so you make another run to the tackle shop.. i could go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on ..... and on

I don't understand why you can't just go fishing anymore...you have either specialize in something..fly fishing, bass fishing, walleye fishing...and they all believe their kind of fishing is the best. shockedcrazycrazy

dude lake tom. I fish for anything that bites my lure. I agree with you though. some people think that if they want to bass fish they need a 21 foot bass boat or a huge deep v to walleye fish. they do help though. I'm loving these. especially the big hook set one. i do that on every fish. i can be fishin sunnies with a 5 foot ultralite and i set the hook like im driving a hook into concrete. i dont get that bass is the nascar of fishing. please explain. keep em comin its makin my day.

No offense taken Champion. Its all in good fun. I have no problem catching many accidental bass while fishing for walleyes. They have saved many a trip when the smarter walleyes are not biting.

I'll be thinking of you the next time I reel in a 28 inch wet sock.

you might be a bass man if...

you trade your wife's van for a smaller vehicle so your bass boat will fit in the garage.

you call your boat sweetheart and your wife from the lake.

you have a photo of your 10 lb. bass on your desk at work instead of your family

grin

lol, that's an option. it's mine anyways laugh

this could sum it up for bass men but it really applies to most fishermen/hunters...

a reporter approached the Chief of a Native American Tribe and asked if he preferred the old ways or the new White Mans. The Chief gave him a ''Hmph'' and answered... '' the old ways were when women did most of the work, fixing the house, tending crops, cleaning. and the man? he hunted and fished every day with no complaints.... what do you think? Hmph, only a White Man would think he could improve that system.'' grin

    • Bummer. Battling a cough/cold here and the snooze alarm won this morning.  Hopefully I'll get out later this week.
    •   I use them and they seem to work fine. I guess with the poppin version I don't really walk them, I just work them in the holes and around other Bassy looking cover. I don't work them real fast. My guess is you would probably want to use the standard style for walking them.   Cret what versions did you test for walking, the standard styles or the poppin versions? 
    • Looked them up.   Personally they seem underpowered but it will depend on how much water you need to remove when you finally need that pump. The water powered pumps performance is based on water pressure. If you have 60+ psi then you can get 500-900 gpm and it looks like you will use 1 gallon of tap water for every 2 you pump out of the pit. For comparison I generally use 3/4 horse pumps at a minimum for the pumps which gives you something north of 3000 gph.   I'm not real sure if code and insurance even allow them so check first. If you have a small house and if the sump doesn't get used much it might be an option.
    • Just returned home last night. Had 3 Jake's come in at 7am on my 1st morning and decided to pass on them. Never saw or heard a Tom the next 5 days. Oh well maybe I learned a lesson. Good luck to all.  
    • Never saw a water driven pump. The ones I use and know if are the battery backup kind. They are sold at all if the big box stores and are around $300 I believe. They run off of an automotive type battery that has a trickle charger attached to it to maintain the charge. You have as much backup power as your battery has capacity and then that pump is dead as well so it's a short term solution.having a generator is very helpful as part of the backup plan.
    • I missed one last night.   Shot a 3D archery shoot yesterday and did really well.  From there straight to my blind for an evening hunt.  Big tom came in to 32 yards. I ranged him, dialed in my sight and slid one just passed him. That's as far as I've ever shot with my bow but was feeling pretty confident after shooting all day. Oh well.   Sitting in another spot right now and as of 6:30 have not yet heard a peep.  Can't sit long today, dang work always getting in the way of my fun.
    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
