I know their is only a hand full of members right now so  let's get this forum up and moving again.First topic is where is everyone from?I'm From South Jersey.I live near many small lakes,too small for boats with gas motors(most of them anyhow.)Our biggets lake around here is 836 acres,has some smallies and all that other good stuff.I spend my winters/late fall chasing striper and tog up and down the south Jersey coast. I'll stop now before this turns into a novel.

I'm from Port Dover ON Canada..  Right on Long Point Bay, the north shore of Lake Erie. I fish Lake Erie a lot and Lake Ontario isn't far away either, as well as many smaller lakes and rivers here in Canada. Lots of bass to be caught up here!

Rochester, NY. I would ask all posters to put their location in their signature, so readers can put their posts in better perspective. I'm a member of another YaBB forum where many of us have done that with our signatures, and it works out pretty well.

Grand Blanc, Michigan.  A ton of small lakes by me.  We have a lot of big lakes, too, but my 12 foot jon boat and electric motor have me spending most of my time on the smaller lakes.

I am from Covington LA. About fourty-five minutes north of New Orleans.  I fish small farm ponds most of the time also.  I haven't lived here a long time but so far I have had my best luck with jig combo's.

Cumberland and Norris don't freeze.  I'm going to go to Norris before the spring rains fill it up again.  They normally drop the lake 60ft, which as you can imagine, really concentrates the fish.

I'm from the Willamette Valley in Oregon.  Not a lot of local bass fishing, but plenty within 100 miles or so east and west.

I now live in Kansas, where I fish for what ever bites my Bass rigs. I am from Florida that got moved to Kansas by my wife who is from Kansas. Out here I have caught Large and small mouths, walleyes, channel cats, and flathead catfish. If anyone can tell me what lures work the best, when to use them, and what colors to buy i would be happy.

And I'm from South Africa, just starting out with bass fishing and hoping to learn from all you pros...

I'm also from South Africa, Jhb, and also a newb to bass fishing.

Hope you've had better luck out there than I have, out fishing 6 times in a row and I've had 2 bites, both got away >:(

I had fun tho, no complaints, this weekend I'll do lots more fishing, all weekend long at Harties dam.

But that's exactly what this forum is for ;)

I'll keep your mail handy thanks

Guess u've got a boat?

nope, summer's a terrible time to buy boats and convertibles, maybe next winter, if all goes according to plan, meanwhile I'm looking at a tube, which I imagine I'll get to use even if I have a boat.

nice, wish I'd caught anything at all, I'd be more concerned if people around me had been catching, but it's been that slow for everyone else as well, except the guys after carp.

google says "The Heyshope Dam is famed for its favourable conditions for black bass fishing." enjoy it, and I'll drop you a mail sometime, might be headed for your neck of the woods at some point this summer

I'm originally from Philadelphia, PA.  But thanks to the United States Navy, I have been a southerner for the past 19 years and reside in Portsmouth, VA.  I have been given a honorary southern gentlemen tag by my friends here in VA.  My boys are southern born and bred.  So here's to the South! ;D

Brooker, Fl. just north of Gainesville. Lakes, ponds and rivers all around me, but hurricanes ahave closed most lakes and boat ramps due to flooding and trees down.
