    Westernbass Magazine, Winter 2018

    Hi Anglers, Can you believe another fishing season is behind us? It goes so fast! As usual, the winter hiatus means the boat and sports shows are upon us. WesternBass will once again be at the International Sportsmens Expo (ISE) hosting the casting tank and all the bassin’ seminars. Be sure and stop by and say hi! During this off-season, we were able to create some enhancements to the WesternBass.com digital mag. We hope you enjoy the new look and feel. We would like to ask that when you are thinking of your tackle, gear and boat purchases that you remember our sponsors. They are the reason that the WesternBass site and magazine is available to all viewers for FREE and speaking of site sponsors, we want to welcome two new ones – Trapper Tackle and Boulder Boats. We also want to introduce a new feature by one of our long-term sponsors, Dr. Trolling Motor. They will now be helping to answer your trolling motor questions within the forums; so, if you have one, please feel free to post it. In closing, I want send my condolences to Cooch’s family. Since I’ve been a part of WesternBass, Cooch was right there to answer questions and offer advice. I was fortunate enough to spend time on the water with him and have been proud to utilize the site to host the C.O. Pro / Teen information as Cooch needed. I am sure he is stilling tossin’ a jig in the big pond in the sky. He will be greatly missed. I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year... Wayne

    Westernbass Magazine, Fall 2017

    Fall is once again upon us and that marks the last season and issue of WesternBass Magazine for the year. As the year is quickly coming to a close, many of us find ourselves looking at year-end invitationals, our Tournament of Champions (TOC) or the last of big event of our season. Through September, we will watch as the Wild West Bass Trail (WWBT) Lucas Oil Championship and the WON Bass U.S. Open both launch on Lake Mead. To help our readers ready for their bass search on this desert lake, we checked for some tips from the 2009 U.S. Open champ Gary Dobyns. For some fall info for anglers fishing the River2Sea Open, Best Bass Tournaments (BBT) Tournament of Champions (TOC) or the final stop of the FLW Costa Series Western Division on Clear Lake, we went to the unprecedented winner of back-to-back WON Bass California Opens (2016, 2017) as well as the reigning WWBT Pro/AM champ Wayne Breazeale for a few words of advice. There are several California Delta events, that we are also looking forward to – the Don Lee Memorial Tournament on the California Delta, offering 50 percent of the entry to the Don Lee College Scholarship Fund for Youth and The BassFest, a two-day bass fishing event like no other with one day of vendors and pro tips and a second day of tournament competition. Looking back at the summer, WesternBass wants to congratulate several of the western anglers for their accomplishments away from home – out for his rookie season on the FLW Tour, Aaron Britt (Yuba City, Calif.) qualified for the Forrest Wood Cup and fished his way to a top-10 in the event, Gary Haraguchi (Redding, Calif.) not only earned the FLW Tour co-angler Angler of the Year (AOY) title for 2017, he then traveled across the country to 1000 Islands in July and claimed another victory, putting himself in the lead for the FLW Northern Division Co AOY by 25 points, Chico State teammates Tyler Firebaugh and Chad Sweitzer for their 3rd place finish in the B.A.S.S. College Championship on the Mississippi River, Mark Daniels Jr. (formerly of the California Delta) with a 4th place finish as in the Rookie of the Year (ROY) standings on the Bassmaster Elite Series and the always consistent Cody Meyer (Grass Valley, Calif.) for his 6th place in the FLW AOY standings for the year. Whether it is a year-end championship, personal best or simply more time on the water, there is still time to accomplish your fishing goal for the season; so, get out there on the water and give a try! Whether it is a year-end championship, personal best or simply more time on the water, there is still time to accomplishyour fishing goal for the season; so, get out there on the water and give a try! See you there....

    Westernbass Magazine, Fall 2016

    Hi All, As I begin to write this message for the fall issue, I once again am amazed that another season has passed so quickly. Once again, it has been eventful for us in the bass fishing world. We have another WON Bass U.S. Open winner to congratulate as Johnny Johnson recently became the newest fishermen to join the ranks of the prestigious family of champions. Looking back we also have other fishing memories and battles to celebrate including the 15th annual Snag Proof Open, the Don Lee Memorial tournament and the Delta limits victory. As this goes to press, we await two of the biggest western TOC’s of the year with WWBT’s Lucas Oil Western Classic and BBT’s Tournament of Champions with $20K guaranteed cash for the winning team on the line. I look forward to watching for the outcomes of both of these events and the other TOC’s and specialty events like the River2Sea Open that will soon be blasting off. We once again want to thank all of you for tuning in to WesternBass and for supporting our sponsors which make the site, the magazine and this forum possible. Wayne
