Welcome to 2019, the fun has just now begun
I can’t think of a recent time when bass fishing was going to be this exciting. Just in-case you have been living under a rock for the past 6 months, major changes have happened in the fishing industry.
The Major Leauge Fishing Bass Pro Tour was formed, which essentially gutted the Bassmaster Elite Series of top-tier talent.
The FLW Tour has tons of a new faces and some familiar old faces. They have also revamped their FLW Live broadcast to include more coverage on the water and a slew of new guest hosts
Bassmaster, well has remained Bassmaster. Continued cover with BassLive, which I believe is still the standard for live coverage. Ronnie Moore, Davey Hite, And the Z-Train will all return to bring you the best from the Bassmaster tour.
What does all this mean? To me, you’re going to see a lot of Baits. Now we have entered the era of “No Hiding from the Camera”. No longer will Patches O’Hoolihan be able to stand up on stage and tell you he caught a 6 pound bucketmouth on Trusty Teds Double Tail Jerk Minnow, when you saw him fishing a Berkley Powerworm live on camera. The consumer will win in the end.
I have my opinions of all tours, but in the end SHOW ME THE BAITS. I dont care aout all the other political stuff, just let the sport grow and prosper. Keep pumping out the good information to the masses and keep my casting on my ledges and I’ll be fine.
The Baitman Box is Coming..
It’s been in the works for a while, and by works just jumping around inside my head. But thanks to Casey at 6th Sense Fishing, the Baitman Box will now be available. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and 6th Sense is totally on board with it. What I want to offer anglers everywhere is a box of baits for each season of the year. One for Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. It’s not a box to just close out discontinued baits or samples. It’s a box that I have confidence in with baits that I have and would tie on myself. Look for this to hit within a few weeks or the first of Februrary. I’ll also be offering special discount codes on 6th Sense products as well.
Courting New Talent
It’s my fault
I haven’t devoted the time or effort to keeping up The-Baitman.com. But that is changing.
A follower recently reached out to me offering to help. I’m glad he did.
Welcome Josh Courtney as a contributor to The-Baitman.com. Josh is just like you and I. A normal guy with a day job and a passion for tackle. After seeing a sample of his writing I knew that not only could he write but he knew exactly what he was talking about.
Check out Josh’s first Review on the Shimano Curado DC
In the mean time I plan to Blog Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Plus add a product review and or article on each of those days. I’ll also be adding YouTube videos that coincide with each article as well. Look for content from Brad Knight, Terry Bolton, Andrew UpShaw, and more.
