Another favorite meal for largemouth bass

When writing about the favorite about food source for largemouth bass I generally only discuss shad.

I previously wrote an article about crayfish or if you prefer the names crawfish or crawdad and pointed out that these crustaceans are found in both Lake Sinclair and Lake […]

By the time December rolls around and the countdown to Christmas really begins, most local bass tournaments and weeknight hawg fights have, by and large, drawn to a close.

Outdoors With Martin: Largemouth bass fishing

There’s little question that Lake Erie is the Walleye Capital of the World. And I’d bet that if anybody did some careful checking, it might rank high in the U.S. for perch, smallmouth bass, channel cats, white bass, and other hard fighting fish. So when Hocking County anglers head north, they’ll most likely be seeking these prime game fish. But if walleye and perch aren’t hitting during your trip, there’s still a fish that can […]

Largemouth bass stocked in Renner Reservoir

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department recently stocked largemouth bass in Renner Reservoir, bringing a multi-year rehabilitation effort of the 70 acre reservoir south of Hyattville to a close.
