Here are some tips for keeping warmer while you're doing that winter fishing courtesy of the Beaver Dam Store crew! Read the Tips

Outdoor Tips from the Pros at Wrangler ProGear

- Fish generally move into the current, so make sure your lure doesn't surprise them from behind.

- Keep your rod tip in the water to prevent fish jumps (and hook tosses).

- On fishing and hunting trips with kids, take along pocket field guides so both the child and the adult can correctly identify fish, animals, wildlife tracks, plants, insects, birds and vegetation.

- Fish under residential docks on sunny days. For best results, skip your lure or bait under the dock.

Get a bite after midnight
At 2:00 a.m. most anglers are only dreaming about catching a big fish, but a few smart fishermen know that night time can be the right time for catching fish. Read Complete Tip

Bass Tournament Shortcuts
Have you ever noticed whether it be Club Tournaments, Divisional Tournaments (B.A.S.S. Federation, Red Man, Anglers Choice, etc.) and even the Pro Tournaments, usually you will see a hand full of the same anglers consistently "In-The-Money" most of the time. Read Complete Tip

Finesse Fishing - by "The Bass Coach" (Roger Lee Brown)
Finesse fishing is pretty much nothing more than "Down Sizing" a particular type of bait or lure.

Fish Attractants - by "The Bass Coach" (Roger Lee Brown)
There has been a lot of controversy over "Fish Attractants" or otherwise known as "Fish Scents" or "Fish Formulas". In the past, I've noticed that many of my former bass angling students as well as my bass guide clients have always come prepared with plenty of "Fish Attractant", and wow! Do they ever use it!

Jerk Baits - by "The Bass Coach" (Roger Lee Brown)
Jerkbaits, without question would definitely fall in the "Top-10" category of all artificial baits used by Tournament Anglers in today's bass fishing mostly because these types of baits have proven themselves over and over to not only catch bass in numbers, but they catch quality bass as well.

Jigging Spoons - "The Bass Coach" ... (Roger Lee Brown)
Through out the past several years while fishing with co-anglers, charter clients, and some of my bass fishing school students, I have noticed that most of the fisherman and women dont carry jigging spoons in their boxes, in fact when I ask them if they've ever used one they usually reply that they have never used one or they wouldn't know the first thing about using them. Well, let me suggest to you that a jigging spoon is a very "Highly Productive" type of lure that you need to learn if you plan to do a variety of bass fishing. Read Complete Tip

Lure contrasts provide effectiveness
I've been fishing since I was 8 years old and began fishing artificials 25 years ago with Cotton Cordell's Big O crankbait and Bill Norman's Snatrix plastic worm. I've read hundreds of articles that gave reasons that fish attack lures, but my experience tells me that there are abstract qualities in a lure that cause it to be seen, tracked and bit.
