I look forward to getting both Bassmaster mag & Bass Times, always few articles worth reading. I am a charter life member since '69 and had no idea they charged an extra fee.

Cool I will try it for a year. I like having a stash of fishing magazines for long rides and when we travel without internet.

If you fish competively at all, by joining your state B.A.S.S. NATION (old federation) I’m pretty sure B.A.S.S. times are part of that membership plus added benifits of being a nation member.

@cgolf,

I just started getting it.  Be aware that it is approximately 10 1/2" x 13 3/4"!  I received my first issue last month and I thought, what is that huge thing in my mailbox?

Sure it's worth a Dollar an issue , there is plenty of great information in the times. I think it just depends how hungry you are for angling information and what other subscriptions you already have.

@cgolf,

It's more like a newspaper than a magazine.  The longest articles are about a page long.  There's some fishing information, info about tournaments, and a bunch of small articles about various fishing related topics.  And of course, there are a bunch of ads (I'm kind of weird, and I like reading fishing related ads :wacko:).  I often find myself with only little bits of free time, so it's something to read during those times.

If you believe you will get more enjoyment out of the magazine than a case of beer, buy the magazine. If not, enjoy your beer.

I like good bourbon and scotch so I would have to give up all of my subscriptions lol. Now just need to get it ordered. 

 

For subs I have BAM, In Fish, FLW, Bassmaster, and get Musky Hunter when I see a new one at a store. I enjoy reading magazines, BAM is the best, and has a ton of content, also takes a long time to get through. 

 

Really miss the old Bassin and Crappie mags.

BAM and InFisherman have more in depth info - I just gave away 20yrs of bassmaster and bass times - I read them all but I have learned more from InFisherman than all the rest put together. I also tossed my old Bassin' but all the mags went to a 13yr old and I feel they found a good home.

My wife just told she reupped Bassmaster and BAM

So it goes.

Considering I sometimes spend that just stopping at the store before work in the morning, I would say it's beyond worth it!
