Is it just me or does everyone else think that the bass fishing is just getting better and better each year? May be it's do to "global warming". It seems that maybe the fruits of catch and release are here! And of coarse our fishing gear is better than ever before. what do you think?

Alot of it has to do with the gear that we all have here now days. Just think back about 5-10 years ago, where the gear has come from.

Fishing has been soft for me, but i have not spent alot of time out on the water, being that i have been so busy with work.

I think a lot of it has to do with all the information out there these days, like Fishing Minnesota. You can learn a lot by reading other anglers post and just asking question that will help you become a better angler.

I think the biggest thing is the catch and release up here for bass. We have abundant other game fish and pan fish for eating, down south alot of bass get kept and you read about those tournament guys saying 6-8 keeper bites a day is a really good day. That and we only get at most 5-6 months a year to catch them, rest of the time they just get to swim around un pressured.

I remember my only info came from the 1-2 guys I fished with or what info I got out of a magazine which is many times slanted because the mag is getting paid or getting free stuff from the supplier. Now I can read here and get 100 views of a bait or technique.

    • ouch, I would think all would good now, but one never knows.  life is good today is all i know.
    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there. 
    • Mostly commenting this "sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests" but I do love it when people assume I am somehow D or R because I make a comment against their beloved party.
       
    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.  
    • This summer?   Seems like a long time.  Are you sure this guy knew what he was doing?     Freezing may or may not kill the parasite.     From CDC.  Freezing wild game meats, unlike freezing pork products, may not effectively kill all worms because some worm species that infect wild game animals are freeze-resistant.
