calculating color

On today’s sophisticated fishing scene, attention to presentation details usually separates great anglers from good anglers. In this regard, in many situations, working through the puzzle of finding just the right lure color combination is the key to catching more fish. Great anglers have a plan and are willing to work through the color puzzle, fine-tuning as they go. First, of course, an angler has to be on fish. Overall, at this point, identifying the right lure speed and maintaining proper depth control are much more important than color. If those factors aren’t in order, color has little to do with the equation.

plant perspectives for bass

The behavior of many freshwater fish species tends to mirror the habitat they favor. As the most widespread and versatile predator species on this continent and perhaps all others, largemouth bass have been able to take advantage of many different ecological niches to survive and prosper. We find good fishing in featureless farm ponds, clear Canadian Shield lakes, canyon impoundments, densely vegetated river backwaters, and more. Bass find a way. But the history of bass distribution suggests their aboriginal home was in warm waters featuring abundant plant growth. And that’s where many top populations continue to thrive. There, dozens of plant species provide cover—vantage points where bass can hold unseen, waiting for preyfish or invertebrates to come close enough to launch an attack. Getting Rid of “Weeds” Fishery biologist Gabe Gries wrote an…
