    Do you eat any fish? It looks like you release everything you catch.

    • admin says:

      Yes. I love eating fish. I usually have a fish fry or two on most of my trips. For freshwater, I eat walleye, perch, crappie and bluegill the most. On some of the lakes that are abundant with smallmouth bass, I’ll keep a couple of smaller fish to eat too. Fish are food and I eat fish. Selective harvest is important though.

    What is the best time of year and the best bait for surf fishing for pompano? I live in Flagler county. Any hot spots there nearby?

    • admin says:

      Florida Pompano usually have 2 main runs – one in the spring and then again in the fall. Most people report the surf fishing best when water temperatures are in the 70s. For most years, November, December, March and April are the months to target pompano in the surf. The cold fronts in the fall and warm fronts in the spring will dictate where and when these fish move. Follow the reports in your local area. When the pompano are in, people will be talking.

    What’s your favorite frog for bass fishing?

    I love the Zoom Super Fluke and the other jerkbaits on the market. Do you know of any soft plastic jerkbaits that are a little bit different from all the rest?

    Did you do most of your walleye fishing up in Canada? Looks like Lac Seul and the English River. Am I right?

    Do you think wacky worms are better weightless or on a light finesse jig like in your pond fishing video?

    I’ve been following your site for years. It’s getting big. Nice job. When do you think you’re going to start doing more destinations? I knew that was your plan when you first started.

    • admin says:

      Next year, I’ll be focusing more on destinations. Currently, I’m knocking out the fishing tips sections for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, northern pike, walleye, perch, crappie and then many saltwater fish. By next year, I’ll be doing mostly destinations and will be launching our member section with detailed tips on specific destinations. Thanks for following my progress.

    What’s your favorite lure for pike fishing?

    How come people don’t eat bass very often?

    • admin says:

      They are viewed mostly as a sport fish. Smallmouth bass actually taste very good and many of the places up north will encourage you to eat the smaller fish (12 to 14 inch range), but letting the big ones go is important. (Selective harvest). Largemouth bass don’t taste nearly as good, which is why a lot of people prefer to eat other fish.

      Catch and release is stressed so much for bass that most people will never fillet a largemouth bass. I do have access to a private lake called Apple Canyon Lake and I keep some smaller bass every once in a while there. They taste ok compared to other species of fish, so I usually only keep them if I want a fish fry and we’re having trouble catching big bluegill or crappie. On most of my fishing trips, I can catch walleye, pike or panfish, so largemouth bass, for me is probably 95% catch and release.

      From the people I talk to, it sounds like more people enjoy eating smallmouth than largemouth if they do eat a bass, however, like me, most of the people I see release anywhere from 90 to 100% of the bass they catch. If you do keep some bass, do some research on selective harvest and let those big ones go.

    Do you like the Chiggar Craw better or the Express Craw? For smallies? For largemouth bass?

  12. Al says:

    Do you like tubes or grubs better for smallmouth bass?

    What pound fishing line do you use for smallmouth bass in clear water?

  14. LukeL says:

    You’re going to Canada for smallmouth bass fishing. Pick just one lure you can use. What would it be?

  15. BillP says:

    Is the Kalin’s Wac O Worm that good? What makes it different from the others?

    • admin says:

      I like it. The garlic separates it from many other wacky worms. It’s a good price also. I’ve tested a ton of wacky worms and most of them are similar. Some baits have a little better action. Some have scent added, which is great. Garlic definitely helps. With most of the worms being similar, the scent helps to separate them from other baits.

    How haven’t more people watched your video on the biffle o’ lizard? That lizard is awesome. I’m stocking up. Going to be my new favorite lure. I love it in the tank.

    • admin says:

      That lizard is awesome. I will be shooting more videos of it in the future. Enjoy using it on bodies of water where others aren’t. You have an advantage:) More people will know about it in the future. It is one of the best largemouth bass soft plastics on the market. That counts all lure categories.
