So how does a Google search show you LMB knowledge?

Any one wanting to know bass fishing needs to learn its roots.

What are the effects of LMBV on largemouth bass populations or fishing success?

What are your thoughts on the stocking of grass carp to control the aquatic vegation issues in our lakes.

Give me the pros and cons dealing with the property owner associations versus the angling rights groups when it comes to these issues.

I will also use this thread as part of my resume for online sponsors to show my fishing knowledge.

I'm pretty sure you'll re-think that one in a day or two.  ...lol

You know, fishermen sure do get a bad rap.  There are so many stereotypes about how fishermen are dumb hillbillies.  But there is obviously a lot more to it than most people, who don't fish, can see.  I've been fishing for a while, and was thinking that I might be able to tackle some of these questions. Ha, NOT!

First off, I don't even know what LMBV is.  Secondly, I have no idea what kind of effect carp has on bass, whether it's dealing with grass or not.

Rick Clunn. We older folks have learned at 19 we knew it all and as we aged we realized we know a few things.

JJ, do you have any burning questions about bass fishing that we may be able to answer for you? As you can see, we have all the answers, just need questions.

Does knowing what the environmental impact on evasive species like grass carp help you to become a professional bass fishermen?

Answer; yes & no. If you asked the top Elite BASS pro's that question, a few could give you song & verse, however they will know what a grass carp is.

If you want sponsors it's about catching, not knowledge.

I 'm 45, been fishing since I was 9 ( 36 years ago ), bass fishing for the past 29 years ( trout fisherman originally ... well you gotta start somewhere !  ::) ) and I still are in the process of learning, who knows  ? maybe by the time I reach 90 I will know all there is to know about bass fishing.

It's about promoting and selling the sponsors products, catching bass may help to land a sponsor. There are a lot of good bass fishermen who can catch bass and never be able to make a living bass fishing.

LMBV: Largemouth Bass Virus

If you don't know what  effects (Good or Bad) grass carp can have on a fishery, it all depends on who you ask. The questions are important enough that BASS devotes an entire section of BASS Times to enviromental issues just like this. Pick up a copy or research it when you get time.

Clean water issues, quagga mussels, water rights, land rights, ballast water, invasive species, etc. are all part of the equation. If you think it is unimportant, just read up on it and see.

Good start. The purpose of my questions was to make you look. The more you know and can carry on a conversation pertaining to subjects like these will stand you out from the others. I promise you eventually questions like these will come up and you need to know at least the basics.

Good job!

I make a living bass fishing. I learned a valuable lesson a lot of years ago. When you think you have the answers wait a few more years and you will realize you didn't. This fish will teach you that no answer is correct, as in factual. Bass know no rules, live by no rules, and most often get caught by a moment of good luck.

Learn your body of water, go to what seems like a likely spot, throw what seems a likely bait, don't drop your rod in the water, and perhaps a bass may deign to bite your bait and come aboard for a visit. Then again, perhaps the only bite you get is by some type of bug. :D

About the time you think you have the bass figured outthey will prove you don't ;)  

Ok first off I never said I know all there is to LMB fishing no one does.

Fishing is easyit's the catching that's hard!

Do bass dream and if so, how would it know if it had a wet dream?

Interesting and listed on the Arkansas site as Nixon. B.A.S.S. however listed Clunn. Could it be that Nixon was the first million winner for one tournament? or BASS was in error.

Touche' Cart!! :)

JJ- I've been fishing over 25 yrs, but even still I learn. Some of the particular guys trying to give you advice here have forgotten more than I ever knew,...heed their experience and wisdom.

1 thing always remains the same though,....in the pursuit of knowledge, your ears and eyes need to be bigger than your mouth.

I mean,...sure, we could sit here and stump each other with questions like,...."Does color matter?" but If you REALLY want to test your knowledge, go fishing ;)  If you come home smiling,....having caught or not,......you've figured out enough.

No one is saying that. They may be putting you in your place.  You might realize it, but you're coming off a bit arrogant.  Just re-read your posts, you'll see.  Bassresource.com is no place to get upset at anyone.  These guys are just trying to help you out.

LBH, everyone keeps saying go fishing etc.. What the heck do you guys think i do all day? Any chance i get a free hour im at a pond, lake, river.. I fish 2-4 Tournaments a month. All which involve pre fishing.

Fishing is a lot about knowledge and no one can know it all. But you need it to know where the fish will be at certain times of the year. If you just drive to a lake drop your boat in, without taking consideration to the water temp, Water clarity, Time of the year, Weather etc.. You will never be good. All this thread was supposed to be was for people that had a few question about catching spawning bass etc.. Stuff like that. But some people become immature and mis read everything and take it as im saying i know it all im king. When i never had said that.

JJ

No, don't get defensive. You are offering a place where people can ask questions about LMB but look around, you posted the question on the biggest board on the net that is designed to do just that!  

I'm sure people appreciate your offer to answer their questions, but they already have a whole board, broken down into 18 specific subcategories where they can get answers from everyone pro's and manufacturers all the way down to the weekend warrior.  You're on it right now!

If you need to gauge how good you are or aren't,..... compete.  If not, just go fishing, see what I mean?  

Not knocking you down, we're just confused as to what you actually want.

Hey Young Man: why don't you try it the other way around and ask the fellas  what you need to know. Put up your observations and ask specific questions, I promise you your memory will start getting full as you keep saving all the wonderful information

 There will be some answers word for word out of books and magazines, you will spot those after a while. Stick to the guys with real experience and your fishing knowledge will improve more than you dreamed
