BASS fisherman

Has this site helped you?

Recommended Posts

I believe that the people on this site have helped me to gain lots of confidence in my fishing abilities, therefore making me a better angler.  How have the posts on this site helped you to become a better angler?  Was it the tips and techniques, the forums, the articles, or just the friendly folks in the forums that helped to make your confidence soar like mine?

Well I can honestly say that certain videos (LBH to name one "Hot fun in the summertime") kept me in the game longer than I would have without them. Those types of videos give me that little extra push I need to give it a go.

I also picked up the little things that frustrated me to no end! Rigging a t-rig properly... that is without the Q shaped worm tip  :-?

Learning the different styles of presentation, how they are applied, and when to use em. This has prevented me from going completely crazy, and is giving me plenty of options, almost too many options.

I believe that BR does a great job of keeping things organized for the newbie, as well as giving plenty of tips and resources for the seasoned angler. I can't wait to take advantage of those tools ;)

Vince - just my $.02

To anyone just learning fishing to the person who is a diehard fisherman, this site is absolutely invaluable. I have learned more here about bass fishing since becoming a member than all the time I have spent on it before that on my own. The people here are very knowledgable, generous, and try their best to boost confidence. My confidence soared just reading all the articles available in the BassResource.com library and sitting there thinking, "Gee..why didn't I think of that? That's a good idea!" It has helped fuel the change from a "hoo-hum I'll fish when I get the chance on my limited tackle and cheezy Zebco 33" to an angler that has no end for my thirst for knowledge and wants nothing more than to go fishing as often as other obligations permit. It has made me want to spread the joy, tranquility (fishing is my Moment of Zen ;D), and enjoyment of fishing to as many people as I can.  Ya just can't beat this site!

Twice this year I've had boat trouble. Both times I got advice that helped me identify the problem and get it fixed quickly! THANK YOU Way2Slow, Ben, and Team Dougherty (and whoever else I missed)!

Also, I never fished a Senko before reading about them here. They are now my go to bait. THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!!

Excellent site. Thank you Glenn.

The answer is abolutely, yes.  I've fished for a long time but no one person can know everything about every technique, every lure, every piece of equipment, every thing about boats, etc.  The repository of knowledge is greatly increased when you have access to approximately 6000 other minds.  I can't believe how much I have learned from this site.  I don't think we can ever thank Glenn enough for what he has provided here.

I ALWAYS CONSIDERED MYSELF A PRETTY GOOD FISHERMAN. AFTER TEN MONTHS OF COMING TO BASSRESOURCE.COM I'VE IMPROVED CONSIDERABLY. IT'S LIKE HAVING MY OWN BASS FISHING ENCYCLOPEDIA.

THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR ALL THE HELP AND INFORMATION. AND A SPECIAL THANKS TO GLENN, YOU'RE THE REASON WE'RE ALL HERE.

P.S. THANKS ALSO FOR INTRODUCING ME TO THE BAIT MONKEY.

This site has really been a big help to me.  I love reading the articles and I enjoy being able to ask questions here in the forums.  I've really learned alot that has made me a better fisherman, I only hope to be able to pass some of that on to others.

Yes, yes and yes.

I have learned so much for these guys about bass fishing and boating that no formal classes could ever offer.

I have been helped fishing specific bodies of water; made a great friend and we fish together; met Cajun for Louisiana who shares his love of fishing and LSU with me; and have had dialog with some of the nicest people you will ever meet.

So yes, this site has helped me.

Thanks to Glen for getting it started.

Absolutely. I can't say enough good things about this site or even begin to thank everyone for all the advice they have so freely given. It ranges from equipment, techniques, tackle and just plain fun with some great folks (check out the everything else section)

Great job and KUDOS to Glenn and all the moderaters for this site

WHAT ARE YOU KIDDING FORGET ABOUT IT!!!!!

I have learned more about tackle,rods,reels,bass location and behavior,lures and tequiniques and not to forget Knots. I have also learned 2 non fishing skills. How to work a Computer, which is now helping me on my OnLine Colege Course. And how to temper my self so we can diassagree w/o being dissagreable. Glenn and the moderators have deleted a few of my KNCUKLEHEAD REPLIES, you know The Im taking this personal and firing back kind. This are the times I need to close a thread and take some time and filter it b/c most the time It aint worth the key strokes any way

PS and watch out for that fury little guy  BAD MONKEY!!!!!!!!

How about a response from some of the moderaters  

The site has helped me appreciate my passion.

Allowing me an outlet to share and a plethura of opinions to poll for anything under the sun from fishing to family. Many friends I hold here with deep respect, far too many to name.

We are the best board out there, that's not my opinion, that's THE opinion.

In the end, it's up to you guys though. Up to you to obey the rules and encourage the feeling we try to initiate here, a feeling of the passionate pursuit to do and be better and also a feeling of comaraderie and family.

I've made lots of friends and have grown in many ways. Glenn is an inspiration and a great role model. He really leads by example and the board and all it's wealth is the end product.
