Wassup fellas, new here and figured Id go ahead and make a post. First of all, bass fishing is my drug of choice. Aint nothing like the slurp when a bass hit that topwater bait or the anticipation of a bass about to inhale a soft plastic. Bottom line is I love to bass fish, dont matter if its in a pond, lake, river or whatever. That said, it seems like I just cant fish enough lol. Guess Ill go ahead and ask my first question. If there are any pros or tournament fisherman or fisherwomen on here are there any tips or advice you could maybe give into trying to get big into bass fishing for tournaments or trying to fish pro somewhere down the line? I currently have very little spare money and when I have it, I want to go fishing. I dont have a big bass boat, just my bass tracker pond/creek boat and a 7' v-hull that I enjoy taking in ponds as well. Dont have the most expensive tackle neither but love to use what I have. Long story short, bass fishing is my passion and if I could afford it, I would do nothing else. I live in NE NC and the best fishing in my area is local farm ponds and occasionally the pasquotank or chowan rivers. Rarely get the opportunity to go in the perquimans river so idk how the fishing is out there. Anyways I would love to be able to fish tournaments and maybe even make a lil money at what I love to do. Thanks for any help or info you could provide, it is greatly appreciated.

As far as the fishing goes in my area here lately. I'm pretty sure the bass are still on their pre-spawn pattern. Fishing is slow and what bass we are catching are small (less than two lbs). Most of the fish are short and chunky so far this year. Have fished both ponds and the pasquotank river since the warmer weather began moving in and definitley doing better in the ponds. Have only boated two fish in the river so far and they where not even bass. A 9" white perch and a large bluegill. Today me and a friend of mine hit up a local pond near my house. Took his jon boat out and worked the banks hard with soft-plastics, crankbaits, buzzbaits, jerkbaits and everything else we could dig out of our tackle boxes. I had a bunch of short strikes on a t-rigged senko (chartreuse) and a t-rigged zoom lizard in purple/chartreuse. No takers though on the soft plastics. Got a good strike on a rebel crawdad crankbait but I was late setting the hook and he got off. Feel like it was a good sized bass as well. My buddy ended up landing a good sized jack pike that was caught on a big lipless crank (silver with blue back and red treble hooks). It was a good fish but that was the only major catch of the afternoon. We where drifting corks with nightcrawlers out behind us while we bass fished as well and ended up landing four good sized bluegill on those so overall a very good day of fishing, just not for catching bass. Figured Id let yall know how the fishing has been in this area. Just cant wait to get back out there and try for them bass again.. Takemeasy and good fishing.. 8-)
