I got an e-mail the other day about bass gold. It's some kind of program were they put in the winning patterns for many different lakes. I guess you can select your lake and it tell you what depths cover lure has won in the past. And I guess you can add your own winning patterns too. Look kind of interesting it like $35 a year. Just seeing it anyone on hear see or tried it? And what's your thoughts on it?

Its a good idea in theory. Its a good tool to give you an idea where to start, but nothing you can't learn from forums or other internet research. Honestly I'd have a hard time believing it. There is nothing that keeps people from purchasing it just to submit false reports. With large amounts of money on the line you should rest assured that people will give bad data to try to throw others off close to tournament time. There isn't a check and balance on that, and there really is no way for the Admin's to confirm nor deny any report... especially local smaller lake reports. You would never be able to deceifer which reports are real and which are skewed. It would be interesting to read, but I would never bet my outing on it.

You could get all of that info for yourself with some legwork on sites like this one as well as the tournament trail sites. If it is a smaller body of water you would probably not get any info regardless, unless they make stuff up lol.

it's endorsed by BASS...... i don't think they would put there name and reputation on the line if it was not the real deal. they(bass gold) use data from fishing turnaments from bass and the flw and they have winning patterns dating back to the early 70''s...............................

Whos to say the people that win those tourneys tell the truth about what they caught them on? If that tournament is the same time the next year why would they want to divulge all the information that got them a check that year?

Unless BassGold is going to pay me alot of money for my tournament secret, I sure as heck wouldn't be giving out ALL of my information. Maybe a little, like type of area, but the whole pattern?.... ya right. Unless a camera was in the boat with them, there is no way I would trust all the information. Since when do most fisherman tell the truth? LOL. I generally will tell the truth when asked, but it has 100% came back to bite me on my local waters. People copy you, follow you, and then start showing up on your holes after you offer friendly advice. Then prance around like they found the pattern. Drives me nuts. I guess the bad manners are on them, but most don't care.

I just know the breed that makes up alot of the local tournament guys, and I hate to see people throw their money into something that would pretty much be zero help. I guess we'll see, maybe it will surprise me and people will be honest and the reports will be very useful. :respect-059:

I haven't used it or even really looked at it, but BASS has been talking about it on their site a bit along with the Fantasy fishing, and the BASS articles have said that bass gold has pretty much been dead on with the bait, area, and total weight of alot of the Elite tourneys and some of the opens
