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

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

    • And if the leftists get lucky at the convention?     You aren't against human rights, like income, health care, equality, LBGTQ rights, and stuff like that, right?  
    • You scale them, no?
    •   So, why bother with locks?  Honest people won't take your stuff even if the door is unlocked.   I am in the camp that I want to make it at least a little difficult for the crooks.   Especially since three people in our family have had their houses burgled and stuff taken.
    • The result right now is not good. One way or the other the toilet needs flushing
    • Mostly I talk about this with respect to the nonsense about multiple parties or no parties some on here seem so fond of.      It is all a fantasy.   Some new party could possibly take over an existing party, like Trumpism did, or even replace it like happened back in the day but in the end there will be two parties.     Perhaps a parlimentary system with multiple parties would be better than what we have, but, in my opinion, you can't get there from here.  It's like the calls for a Constitutional Convention.   Do you guys seriously think that could happen, and that the result would be good?  
    • I haven't gone up the old Grade, but do head to Outing via Emily and NE from there, and it is really nice. Hardly any roads to go across and little to no ditch riding. I have got to try the Old Grade, as I would think it is like that. We grouse and duck hunt up there now and then, but haven't lately. Great place with lots of public land and opportunity.
    •   But yet I countered with an actual study but you think your own speculative based opinion is better. OK then.     How very hypocritical.      I would end the discussion after that last statement too.
    •     I can guess it is not for humanitarian reasons.   Mexico has about had their fill of fighting the drug war for us, and are moving towards decriminalization.  If California legalizes weed, this would be enough to tip the scales in favor of decriminalization for Mexico.       For years now, Mexico has paid an extraordinarily high price in lives and social disruption for Washington’s insistence that North America’s drug problem be tackled south of the border, where the drugs are grown and transported, rather than primarily in clinics and halfway houses at home to treat the medical and psychological issues of users. Mexican President Pena Nieto.   Successive administrations, starting with President Nixon, have demanded ever-tougher border controls, aerial-spraying programs, and DEA-backed anti-“cartel” operations in Mexico. All those efforts and sacrifices have been for naught. U.S. residents currently export up to $29 billion in cash to Mexican traffickers each year to buy marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines and heroin.   Forcing that trade underground has taken a terrible toll on Mexico in terms of violence, corruption and social upheaval. Since 2006, when President Felipe Calderón ordered his military to join the “war” on drug traffickers, Mexico has lost about 200,000 lives and 30,000 more have disappeared,dwarfing the civilian death toll in Afghanistan and Iraq over that period.   The majority of those killed and disappeared were victims of criminal organizations, but human rights organizations also report soaring rates of human rights violations, including torture and killing, committed by security forces.   The 2016 Global Peace Index, prepared by the Institute for Economics and Peace, estimates the total cost of violence in Mexico at $273 billion, or 14 percent of GDP, with no end in sight. Direct fiscal costs of fighting the war on crime were about $32 billion in 2015 alone. Yet the United States has contributed only about $2.5 billion since fiscal 2008 to Mexico’s drug war, under the so-called “Merida Initiative.” Mexico’s pain shows no signs of easing. The New York Times reported in December that Mexico suffered more than 17,000 homicides in the first 10 months of last year, the highest total since 2012. “The relapse in security has unnerved Mexico and led many to wonder whether the country is on the brink of a bloody, all-out war between criminal groups,” it said.    
    •   But In Del's defense, he only does this on things he would like to stay as is. When you are talking about legislation he is in favor of then it is the law of the land and can't be changed. When it is something that he dislikes, it can and should be changed.
