Colorado, Indiana and willow-leaf blades give spinnerbaits different actions that excel in situations that are widely different. A spinnerbait primer

For many fishermen, spinnerbaits have taken a back seat to a lot of new lures and trends in fishing: swimbaits, umbrella rigs, vibrating jigs and swim jigs. All are excellent lures and have replaced a spinnerbait for many fishermen.

One of the benefits to filming a television show and working with professional fishermen is you get to learn their secrets. Dave Wolak and I started a show called “Carolina’s Perfect Cast” that airs on the Pursuit Channel at 9 a.m. on Saturdays and 7:30 a.m. on Thursdays.


Catching a 6-pound bass is fun any way you can do it, but especially fun if it’s with a bait or technique you really enjoy. How to fish? The fun way

When I was a youngster growing up in Raleigh, surrounded by arguably the best lakes in the country — Falls, Jordan, and Harris — I was influenced by all kinds of professional fishermen. I wanted to flip like Denny Brauer, crank like David Fritts, and be able to read water like Rick Clunn. The one thing I never wanted to do is scream like Ike ... but that’s another story. Maybe I could attach, “Bless your heart” which in North Carolina you can attach to any insult and make it all better.

Take care of the bass you catch and release and you’ll have them to catch and release again and again. Why fish slime matters

Afew months ago, I accidentally dropped a bass in the bottom of a dirty old johnboat at my favorite pond. I felt bad, as it was covered in sand when I let it go. Two months later, I took a friend and his son back to the same pond. Every fish we caught was beautiful — except one my friend’s son caught. It had sores all over it. I think it was the fish I dropped in the bottom of the boat.

Big bass moving in to spawn are at their most vulnerable during March, because they’re feeding so heavily preparing for the spawn. March is tough to beat

March is when most of the big bass are caught in North Carolina. One reason, I think, is because it’s when most people start fishing. For whatever the reason, it doesn’t get much better for bass fishermen in North Carolina. Bass are on the move this month, and you should be, too.

Once you locate fish in an area, working slowly with a jig can produce some great catches. Keep it simple in winter

With all the fancy fishing items we have available today, sometimes it is best to get back to basics for winter fishing.

During the coldest months, fish can actually get quite predictable, since fishing pressure does not dictate their locations. Locating fish and catching them are two different things, since their metabolisms are slower and need for food is less.

When water temps reach the magic level, you’d better be holding onto your rod. Magic fall number is 60

Bass fishing has really gotten into its comeback from the slowdown of August and September as the water is cooling down. If you are a regular reader, you might remember an article a couple of years ago called “National Buzzbait Week” — a coin termed by my friend and next-door neighbor, Steve. He is retired now, but he once told his boss he was going to take off the last week of October because of National Buzzbait Week. You should be excited about that week, but it does, like everything in fishing, depend on the conditions.

All fishermen have great hopes of finding the next great lure; companies are always searching for the same thing. So what happens? We end up with so much tackle that we are confused and overwhelmed when we hit the water.

Any number of factors may go into a bass striking a lure when it’s not hungry. Draw the ‘right’ reaction

Much is written about bass and reaction strikes. Making a bass bite when it is not actively feeding is what separates a good fishing for a whole day from good fishing for a few minutes. Tricking bass into biting that are not in the “feeding mode” is one of the things that makes fishing so fun.

A frog bait is extremely effective around heavy cover when bass are on a topwater pattern. Why May is my favorite

When asked my favorite month to fish, it is a close call between May or January, but I think May gets the nod because of good weather and aggressive bass. In January, you can have the water all to yourself and really get on quality schools of fish that stay put. In May there is a lot of movement, but it is all in the pursuit of feeding.

Lunker bass are on the move this month from deep water to the shallows, becoming active and more likely to make a mistake and swallow your lure. Big-bass month is here

March is probably the best month for North Carolina anglers to catch a giant bass. We have so many good lakes with potential for double-digit largemouths.

January can be really good for fishing or really cold and miserable. It seems like every year around boat show season, it is one extreme or the other. It’s either snowing or beautifully warm in the low 70s.
