    Westernbass Magazine, Spring 2017

    Hi All, Looks like it’s time to kick off a new season of fishing. For some of us in California, that may be on hold due to the high water levels. We are excited to see the fishing trips and tournaments resume in areas that have been affected. I would like to congratulate the Wild West Bass Trail for their record attendance 181 boat draw at their Shasta event and to Best Bass Tournaments for their 128 boat draw at their Northern Region opener at Berryessa. Like longtime WesternBass viewer Jeff Huth said – I think we are safe to say that the fisherman in and around NorCal are ready to fish!!! And, how exciting is to watch – what seems to be an endless supply – of world record-sized spotted bass be caught and sent in to IGFA for certification. Who knows where the next one will come from, what it will weigh and who will catch it – could it be you? Lastly, I want to share my thoughts and prayers with those, such as the Clear Lake, Oroville and Delta residents, that are facing uncertainty and loss due to flooding and evacuations that have occurred because of the rains.

    Hi all, As we wrap up the fall season and get ready to jump into winter bassin’, I want to congratulate Angler’s Marine on their 30th anniversary of Bass-A-Thon. As always the “West’s biggest bass fishing show” did not disappoint. It is always one of the greatest bass events of the year. If you missed out on the action, you can catch up with some of the pros and vendors in the forums and you can stay tuned to We will be bringing the pro seminars to you on the site, courtesy of Angler’s Marine. We are anxiously looking ahead to the next sports show on the agenda – ISE Sacramento, coming Jan. 19 – 22. We are also excited as all of our tournament organizations get geared up for the new season. The tournament calendar can help you get your schedule together. As a Holiday bonus, is serving up this extra issue of bass catching action to close out 2016. Check out the whole year in the Magazine Library. Finally, I would like to congratulate George Kramer “job well done” on 20 years of Kramer Gone Fishing! George has decided to close down the blog and pursue more fishing time and also plans to continue writing on Westernbass. Enjoy!

I’ve been excited to kick off the year with coverage of the International Sports Shows in Sacramento and Scottsdale as well as the Fred Hall show. Stay tuned for upcoming tank seminars on WesternBassTV, if you missed the shows. This year, WesternBass was excited to bring site users video clips from our western anglers at the Bassmaster Classic. I will be watching and cheering them on throughout the year. I would like to congratulate Lowrance pro Edwin Evers for his outstanding win at Grand Lake for the Classic championship – 29 pounds! Wow! I would to like remind anglers that WesternBass offers many features on the site to make tournament planning easy. Under the Interactive tab, we have the Tournament Calendar and Special Events with Digital Guides for all of the Wild West Bass Trail events. Under the Delta tab, you will find moon phases, weather, water temps and tide charts to help plan a fun and productive day on the tidal water. Lastly, I want to thank all of you for your support of the site and the magazine. It is because of you and our sponsors that WesternBass is the place where fishermen talk. Wayne

    Hi, First I Would Like To Thank You All For Supporting Westernbass and Our Sponsors. As You All Know, Our Sponsors Is What Makes This Magazine And All The Content FREE To You !!! The heat of the summer has finally hit us! We’ve already enjoyed some of the annual summer events with the Yamamoto Big Bass Challenge on the Delta and the WON Bass California Open at Clear Lake and we still have several more to look forward to including the frog events. The California Delta will welcome TWO frog events this year. For 2015, the Snag Proof Open and Angler’s Press will hold separate frog events. The ever-popular, longstanding, ORIGINAL frog only event - the Snag Proof Open will blast off for its 14th annual tournament on the first weekend of August (1st and 2nd) as it always has. There are some changes to the Snag Proof Open format for this year. NEW for the anglers: - The event will be run by Randy Pringle and the BBT staff, who will be donating their time, allowing for a 100% entry fee payback. - Boat order will not be by signups. There will be a lottery draw for boat release order. - All entries received by July 15 will receive a FREE breakfast on Day 1 AND a FREE BBQ at weigh-in of Day 1. In this issue of the Magazine, you will be able to find several tips to get a jump on your frog fishing as well as other summertime tips, tricks, techniques and other fishing news. STAY tuned to the site in mid-July as WesternBass will travel to Florida for the 2015 ICAST show. We will be there to keep you up to date on the latest and greatest industry innovations. Until then, enjoy the summer issue! Wayneg

    Westernbass Magazine, Summer 2014

    Hi Readers, Looks like we are right in the middle of the summertime fishing season. It has been a great season so far for us. We've enjoyed adding Bobby Barrack's Delta Bass Scoop to the regular lineup and were excited to bring you coverage with several of the popular events including the Yamamoto Big Bass Challenge and the Coors Light Invitational by Anglers Press, the FLW Delta Western Division as well as the California Open with WON Bass. We are looking forward to more to come with the Snag Proof Open and BassFest in August and the U.S. Open in September. In the meantime, we are excited about the 2015 ICAST event in a couple of weeks. Bobby Barrack will be attending the event for WesternBass and will be ready to show you many of the new products that will be available. We've recently added a new section to the classifieds. It is available for site users to list waterfront / lake type properties and tournament lodging. As with all the other classified forums, there is no charge for listing or looking. Remember, we have a detailed section with many resources including videos, tide tables etc. available to users in the DELTA section of the site and many resources available in the INTERACTIVE tab. Watch the forums for upcoming information. There is much more to come. Good fishing! Wayne
