    Westernbass Magazine, Winter 2023

    Hi All, The 2022 year is quickly coming to an end, and the winter bite will be here shortly. Clear Lake in December is often a time we see some big ones, and I hope this year is no different! As we wrap up this edition of the mag, WesternBass is ramping up for the January 2023 ISE show, and we are very excited to host the bass casting tank again! It is always a great event and fun to see some of the newest industry innovations, hang out with old friends and make new ones. Stop by and say hi! As 2022 draws to a close, we would like to thank all of our site sponsors that continue to bring the WesternBass site and Magazine to all of our readers. New site advertisers are Missile Baits and Strike King (Lews) reels. Please support these wonderful companies! Wishing for some California rain to bring up the lake levels and kick off the new tournament season next month! Can’t wait to see the 2023 winner’s stories unfold. I hope all of you have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year with giant Bass in the future! Wayne

Good luck to those of you that have qualified.

We have featured the newest in innovation from our sponsors on the site recently and ask you all to take a look at what’s coming down the line. fishermanswarehouse.com Before I sign off for this issue, I want to pay my regards to one of the first superstars of the sport of bass fishing – Dee Thomas.

    Westernbass Magazine, Fall 2021

    Hi All, A trip to ICAST in 2021 was a welcome adventure, after the closure of last year. It was good to see old friends and make new ones. There are some exciting lures and gear coming our way soon! The most exciting for me was the introduction of Uncle Josh Pork, the same we threw back in the 70 and 80’s. Can’t wait to put that on as a trailer. As always, I ask site users and mag readers to support the manufacturers that support WesternBass. They make everything we do possible. We couldn’t do it without them or you! The fall issue always means it’s TOC time! I am looking forward to seeing the 2021 season’s champions crowned! Hoping the water levels hold, so that year-end events can continue as planned and that an early winter arrives bringing much needed rain to the West and to our fisheries! Our thoughts are also with the areas facing the wildfires. It is such a shame to see these tragic situations continue in our beautiful wildlife areas. I hope you all stay safe and have better times ahead. As always, Great Fishing and stay safe! Wayne

The new season has kicked off for many of our tournament circuits and big bass are already starting to show up.

It is always an exciting time of year and we are looking forward to what 2020 will bring. I hope all of you are enjoying our quarterly magazine. We have continued to bring the latest in technology along with great articles and video content for your enjoyment.
