In this month’s episode we visit with BASS Elite Series Pro Clark Reehm, Greg Huff and Rich Lindgren from the Twin City Limits Podcast (again), and we share with you how to get a copy of our secret “underground” episode. Oh, and we also talk about Gerald Swindle’s hat (see below).
Better late than never!– Podcast Episode 9 is finally here. In this episode we chat with Ramada Trophy Chase winner Russ Lane [Alabama native of course], we challenge another fishing podcast to an (un)friendly wager, and we announce a new Tackle Experts contest for our listeners.
Other notes of interest in this episode:
- Be sure to listen for our surprise guests sprinkled throughout.
- The Saints–Vikings game is on THURSDAY, September 9 (Clint and I both get it wrong).
- This episode almost breaks our record for the longest episode yet (not something we are proud of).
Last week ESPN announced that it has agreed to sell BASS to a group of investors, namely: Don Logan, Jerry McKinnis, and Jim Copeland. In Episode 8 of The Armchair Anglers Podcast, we sit down one-on-one with famous media executive Don Logan to discuss the pending BASS sale.
Also included in this episode are live phone lines, comments on the 2010 AOY race, and Clint reacts to Episode 7 being labeled an “Obama love fest”.
In this month’s episode we are joined by Bayou Farewell author and Gulf Coast expert Mike Tidwell. Mike gives us his first-hand account of how the oil spill is threatening America’s wetlands. Later, Bo and Clint discuss BASS happenings while in “Casual Friday” mode.
Legendary fisherman Roland Martin joins Andy Crawford from LouisianaSportsman.com and LSU environmental scientist Ed Overton on The Armchair Anglers Podcast this month to discuss the Gulf of Mexico oil spill off the coast of Louisiana.
Two notes for bass fisherman listening to the podcast:
- Every inch of marsh destroyed on front end (the coast) pushes the saltwater line further back into the marsh, destroying bass habitat on the back end.
- Marsh bass will eat the heck out of brown shrimp. Destroying the bottom of the food chain hurts both saltwater and freshwater fish.
I asked two local big sticks what it would take to win at Lake Guntersville.
Troy Jens of Angling Alabama said, “I hope I am wrong, but I think the weights will be down a little this year. Our local events have been down substantially. I expect a 23 pound average to win, and probably 18 a day to get a check”.
Alex Davis, aka “The Spinnerbait Kid“, said, “The fishing is a lot tougher this year compared to last year when the Elites came. I believe there will still be big bags…it will take 83-87 lbs to win and 36 lbs to get a check”.
I find it interesting that both these guys think that it will take 36 lbs to get a check (Top 47 after 2 days). Their consensus is that the winning weight will be high 80s to low 90s…meaning my early prediction of Pickwick outfishing Guntersville will prove to be false.
If you want to improve your fishing skills, so that you can enjoy a lifetime of improved fishing success, I suggest you invest a day and fish with these gentlemen.
