    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
