  3. Check the water temp this time of year.

    Yep, I've got a set of punches Jim H. put me on several years ago that work really well to punch out flip flops and other foam sheets to make bass poppers with. They work well.

    One of the best tips I ever got on this board and one that increased my pleasure in bass fishing 10 fold, I got from Buddy. He convinced me to switch from the "conventional wisdom" propounded by Dave...

    Another tip when using poppers. Don't set the hook too soon. The English will tell you to say "God Save The Queen" before setting the hook on a top water bite. When the fish takes, I strip line until...

    Coach,
    My own general rule of thumb in clear water is to start with something subtle as in olive, brown, tan, gray (nature's colors) and in stained water something loud as in BLACK or chartruese.

    John,
    Sounds like fun. I know it's cool up there. I envy you Northerners this time of year. It was 106 where I fished yesterday. The water I tubed in felt like bath water.

    JGW,
    You done said a mouthful, my friend. The grass is always greener somewhere else no matter what your pasture looks like. My Mom always told me to "bloom where you're planted" and in many ways I...

    lee,
    good response. Now you've got me thinking. I guess one of the obvious answers to why stripes prefer some lights over the other is because the bait fish prefer one light over the other which...

    Very interesting. I'd grab the fly rods and reels first, then the baitcasting and spinning gear then the guns. If any time were left I'd grab the Dyna King Barracuda. I guess you can tell where my...
