    Hi All, As we head into spring, I am always excited to see the big ones that will be caught. Here, at WesternBass we are always rooting for those PB’s and fun days on the water in general. We are happy to continue with a new season because of our sponsors – the ones that have been with us since the beginning, new ones that have just joined and all in between. Please remember without them supporting us, we couldn’t be here for you. PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS! We welcome Fisherman’s Warehouse as a continued title sponsor and their support as a new major sponsor of the Wild West Bass Trail (WWBT) as well as the Best Bass Tournaments (BBT) and the Future Pro Tour events. We love to be a part of the fishing world and feel that the team of WesternBass, Fisherman’s Warehouse and the tournament organizations are a great partnership to continue to bring you the best of our industry, in many aspects. WesternBass would also like to welcome our newest site sponsors. · American Baitworks · Bajio Sunglasses · St. Croix Rods Again, thank you – the site users for your support of WesternBass and remind everyone to support those that support our industry! Wayne

    Hi All, What a 2021 we’ve had! Wow! Did Ken Mah close out the year?!?!?! That was very fun to watch! It is great to be kicking off a new fishing season! The winter always gets me thinking about Shasta where many of the western tournament circuits start their new year. Whether you are fun fishing or tournament fishing or a spectator, it is always exciting to think about what is in store for the West and what new fish tales we will have to talk about! As always, we at WesternBass ask that you take a look at our sponsors and know that they are the ones that keep our site going! They support the fishing industry, and we encourage you to support the ones that support our sport! May you and your family have a safe and GREAT HOLIDAY SEASON! Tight lines,Thank you all for your support and good luck on the water! Wayne
