    RE: Lawyer berates Opens competitor – Fishing near a friend who just happens to not be in the tournament seems "fishy" to me at best. Regardless of how everything happened, hopefully all sides learn from this experience and move forward.

    RE: Lawyer berates Opens competitor – Wow. Just wow. What in the actual hell is going on these days with tournament fishing?

    RE: Balog on Omori – Joe, good column on Tak. Please publish more conversations with him and the old-school guys who fish with intuition. It would be a lot more interesting than reading about how some guy finds fish with forward-facing sonar.

  • Todd Morsette of Wellington, FL writes:

    RE: Balog on Omori – Great column! I think a lot of us prefer watching the chuck and wind or flip guys, rather than watching someone use forward-facing sonar and staring at their graphs.

    RE: B.A.S.S. Nation change – I was on the Alabama B.A.S.S. Federation State Team in 1992 when we won the Southern Divisional at Kentucky Lake. I am totally against this move. Everyone has "time" to join a club. You don't have to fish every event, and you can fish as a no-boater. I fished in Christian Bassmen with Dewey Kendrick when I was in high school and college (Auburn), long before high school and college fishing teams. This change will have more semi-pros and guides jumping in to get the Classic berth. At least before they had to join one or create a club on paper, which many did. Not going to help the true "grassroots" anglers. And high school and college anglers already have new paths, which us "old-schoolers" did not have.

    RE: Seminole preview – 60 to 70 percent of fish being spawners and being pulled off beds. That sounds great for a successful spawn.

    RE: Balog on Omori – Best Classic win ever.

    RE: Card's health issues – Brandon, you look great fishing the Bassmasters. I prayed for your healing and believe God delivers healing. We are currently dealing with a similar situation with my granddaughter who is almost 4 years old. One day she said her head hurts and that night had a seizure. She was motionless for 12 minutes after with no bodily responses. After an ambulance ride and ER visit of only 3 hours they sent her home. That was 2 weeks ago. She had a droop on the right side of her face and we finally have an appointment with an infectious disease doctor this coming Friday. We will continue to pray for your healing and also hers. Keep healing in Jesus' name and may you do well on the tour this year!

    RE: KVD's announcement – I had the pleasure of meeting Kevin several times over the years. He came in as a relatively unknown "Yankee" and leaves as the greatest tournament angler of all time. He is a first-class person and has been a real credit to the fishing industry. WIth some of our other angling heroes getting up in years, I hope that he becomes the next TV angler for future generations to follow.

    RE: Wilks' tiny topwater – I watched that show! What a great change you made by going to the smaller bait. Love the show, keep 'em coming.

    RE: Daniels joins Team Toyota – Awesome guy! Loves people and is an excellent role model for all! Suggestion: Toyota should drop down and sponsor local guys too! A lot of us are influential too.

    RE: Balog on sport's challenges – You put a fry guarder in the box, what do you think the survival rate is of that group of fry?

    I just read Joe Balog's Winter Wonderland – great story, great writer, great angler, great dude. Go Joe, keep writing good stuff!

    RE: Balog on the hydrilla balance – A lot of people are not old enough to know about some of the old "hydrilla wars" and their effect. Two of the more notable that I experienced firsthand were Conroe and Santee Cooper. For those of us fortunate enough to have fished Conroe back before the landowners waged war on it, it's hard to even describe or for people to believe. Nearly the same for Santee Cooper.

    In both cases, the landowners at Conroe and the power company at Santee dropped the equivalent of the A-bomb on the hydrilla. They sucked the lake down, exposed it, sprayed it and then dumped in a zillion grass carp. Problem solved. Except it decimated both fisheries for bass.

    In both lakes, the brood stock is still there and you see them for a month out of the year when they come up to spawn, but the days of catching giant sacks every weekend of the entire year wherever you went are over. The truth is, if they let the grass grow back, the fisheries would return to what they once were. But that's simply not a priority on these venues any longer. A place like Toledo Bend is where hydrilla can be allowed to thrive, a place where outside interests are minimal and fishing revenue has an impact. I've got a giant box of 1-ounce jigs waiting.

    RE: Balog on the hydrilla balance – Someone needs to educate FWC on this for Lake Okeechobee and other Florida lakes. Their plan is one of total destruction.

    RE: The Night Fishing Bible – I have fished against Jimmy for 25 years in local club tournaments. We all were chasing him for 1st place. I have been blessed to fish with Jimmy at night and in the daytime the last few years. He has forgotten more about fishing than I’ll ever know. I have learned a lot from him on nighttime techniques and colors. This book is on point and very enjoyable to read. I’m sure Mr. Bobby is smiling right now!

  • Jimmy Yarbrough of Hartselle, AL writes:

    RE: The Night Fishing Bible – I want to thank BassFan for mentioning my book, The Night Fishing Bible. It's an honor that you did. I look at this site every morning to keep up with what is happening in the bass fishing world. I have received a lot of favorable comments on the book from readers all across the country. I had some hard copies printed and sold around Christmas. One reader from Ohio sent a message that he had read it twice and was down in his man cave reading it the third time and highlighting key points. Another sent a picture of his father sitting in his recliner reading the book. While the book features North Alabama lakes, the information should be applicable to most waters in the United States. I hope both beginners and veteran night fishermen will find tips in the book that they can use. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

    RE: The Night Fishing Bible – I have had the opportunity to fish against this man in many club tournaments and I can honestly say he is one of the best bass fishermen I have ever met. His fishing is based on a biological approach. His time on the water is second to none. No one could figure out how Jimmy was so consistent. His attention to detail and understanding of bass behavior and how they respond to environmental changes is what makes him stand out and above many other anglers. He will go out of his way to educate any person truly interested in becoming the best angler they can be. He has given advice on several occasions to my 16-year-old son who fishes for Falkville Fishing Team – advice and tips that would take him a lifetime to figure out.

    Anyone wanting to really understand where, why and how bass act and respond to baits and colors had better have this book in their toolbox. Jimmy has forgotten more than most of us anglers will ever know. I consider my son and myself very fortunate to know him. On top of being a great fisherman, he is truly a Godly man. Mentor is the best word to describe him.

    RE: The Night Fishing Bible – I’m glad you mentioned Jimmy Yarbrough’s The Night Fishing Bible in Dock Talk. I’ve fished with Jimmy numerous times over the past 10 years, including at night, and he’s proved to me that he knows what he writes about. Anybody who’s serious about hunting big bass at night will learn something valuable from his book.

    RE: Right place, right time – Having an article about 'god' saving a man's life because someone screwed up a battery connection is ridiculous. Why bring down your page talking about anything other than fishing? Leave religion out of it.
