Bass Fishing Articles

The Piedmont Bass Trail is serious about two things – having fun fishing and keeping bass alive.

Many of the anglers in the Snag Proof Open on the Potomac River Saturday will be doing some Samurai fishing in addition to angling for the $10,000 first place prize for the heaviest three-bass limit.

Finding fish is not going to be a problem for the anglers in the Rayovac FLW Series Northern Division tournament on Lake Champlain this weekend, said veteran angler Dave Lefebre. Finding the right fish, however, might prove a little harder.

Falls Lake has a well-deserved reputation for producing numbers of quality largemouths, including 8-pound and larger bass, so expectations are high for anglers in the Walmart BFL Piedmont Division tournament there Saturday.

Anglers in the Second Annual Snap Proof Open on Lake Cherokee in Tennessee can expect excellent fishing Saturday, according to tournament director Sam Phillips at Morristown Marine.

After finishing a disappointing 73rd at Pickwick Lake earlier this month Matt Arey is looking to spread his wings a little in the final 2014 FLW Tour Major next week on Kentucky-Barkley Lakes.

Over the years Logan Martin Lake has been good to Mark McCaig of nearby Oxford, Ala., and he hopes that good fortune holds Saturday for the final Alabama Bass Trail North Division tournament.

Lake Chickamauga in Tennessee has a growing reputation as one of the best bass fisheries in the nation, currently ranked 7th on Bassmaster Magazine’s 100 Best Bass Lakes, with 20 pounds plus the norm lately for winning local tournaments.
