George Kramer’s annual “Callfornia Top 40 Bass Anglers” list of California’s best bass anglers has ruffled feathers and created a stir since the mid 90s – but never disappoints. As the former editor of WON Bass and now master of his own online blog, few have their finger on the pulse of California bass fishing like George Kramer. His expertise and body of work was recently recognized by the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame in August as they voted to induct him into the Hall of Fame in 2012. The release of his list of the golden state’s best bass wranglers is one of the most anticipated events of the year within the sport. The wait is over…

Redear sunfish record broken at Lake Murray

On June 30th we received a submission to our Big Fish List, a database of our member’s notable fish catches, for a 2.355 pound bluegill caught at Lake Murray that same day. A couple days later, I received a private message from a member (fishbreath) raising doubt to the species of the fish, stating he believed it to be a redear sunfish. Taking a second glance at the pictures that were included with the submission, the fish displayed several attributes of a redear sunfish, but also lacked the most obvious, the tell-tale sign of a redear, the red ear.

FINS is back with double the fun on June 22nd

The popular seminar series FINS (Fishing Instruction Night Series), put on by Anglers Marine the last couple summers will return in 2011 on Wednesday, June 22nd with not one, but two seminar speakers. Evergreen pro-staffers Justin Kerr and Shaun Bailey will conduct the season debut at Anglers Marine in Santee at 7 PM. As is the tradition, Anglers Marine will offer a free BBQ to guests beginning at 6:30 PM. A big raffle, with no doubt a ton of high-quality Evergreen tackle will be raffled off as well. But the real value is the opportunity to learn from the best, and Kerr and Bailey will divulge much of the information they’ve used and aquired as two of the top tournament anglers in the west.
