Crappie Corner - Zeroing In

The most important phase of catching crappie is finding the fish. You can’t catch crappie if there are no crappie in the water where you are fishing. Therefore, your first job is to locate the fish. Once found, you can concentrate on the presentation and baits.

Dan Dannenmueller is one-half of the Yamamoto pro staff team who won the 2011 and 2012 Angler Team of the Year with Bass Pro Shops Crappie Masters Tournament Trail. Fishing all over the country forces him to be able to find fish quickly.

Sounds That Can Trigger the Bite

It’s an exciting and interesting time to be a bass angler, as new advancements in electronics continue to be released year after year.  One such device is on the cutting edge of a relatively new frontier in bass fishing – the use of sound to not merely attract bass, but to stimulate them into feeding.  Released on the market in May of 2011, the Hydrowave has seen rapid acceptance with many pros on the Bass Elite Series and other tours and was designed with input from Elite pros Kevin Van Dam and Jeff Kriet.  We’ve long known that bass are curious by nature and are attracted to investigate sounds in the water; however, the Hydrowave replays actual hydrophone recordings of baitfish and bass in the water with the benefits of actually attracting, as well as stimulating bass to feed.

To those of us who know Joe Lucarelli, and have fished against him for years, his recent Northern EverStart win at 1000 Islands is not much of a surprise. The only surprise is that he hasn't won more events. Joe has been a very consistent tournament angler, balancing a day job as a salesman for HK Powersports, while regularly cashing big checks on Lake Champlian and Erie.

Joe won a BASS Top 150 back on Champlain in 2005, but the top slot has eluded him since then. He and his father, Steve Lucarelli, famously finished first and second several years ago on Champlain, but the elder Lucarelli edged his son at that event. “It’s always tough to finish second, but it was great for Dad and I to finish one-two” Joe said, though he admitted, “To be so close so many times was starting to get to me.”

Beatin' the Bank with Bernie Schultz—2012 BASS Elite Mississippi River Rumble

E-mail Print PDF

August 24, 2012

Driving along the Mississippi River toward La Crosse, Wisconsin, I was captivated by the scenery. High rock bluffs jutting from green rolling hills, and below them meandering channels passing through flooded grass flats and backwater ponds.

To a southerner, the Mighty Mississippi appears much different here. Although somewhat stained, the main body of current is much cleaner than the muddy river we're familiar with. Though vastly different, it's nonetheless inviting.

So Simple It Just Plain Evaded Me

By Mike Whitten

With full credit and deep respect to the late Lord Richard Buckley, and most especially to the poet laureate of sand, sailboats and all things Margarita, Mr. Jimmy Buffett, I stole these words from the classic piece—“God’s Own Drunk”.  No, friends and neighbors, I’m not suggesting to any of you that you take up drinking, run a still, or for that matter, try to run Brother Bear off the hill--- (you’d have to know this song to understand all of this) ---but with regard to fishing and catching the slimy little critters. There are some techniques around that are described by the quote above.  They are just so simple that they somehow evade us, in our search for the new and the technically advanced.
