B.A.S.S. imposes One-Lure Rule for the Bassmaster Classic and Elite Series

So with all of the talk over the past several months, B.A.S.S. has made a decision to ban the Alabama Rig (along with other multi-lure rigs) from both the Bassmaster Classic and Elite Series events. 

"The rule change, which does not apply to Bassmaster Open, B.A.S.S. Federation Nation, College B.A.S.S. and other events, clarifies the intent of long-standing rules permitting only one rod, one reel and one cast at a time. No longer permitted are double soft jerkbait rigs, drop shot rigs with jigs used as weights, double topwater setups and other multi-lure rigs, such as umbrella rigs.”

Most bass clubs traditionally follow the rules that B.A.S.S. institutes, so I wouldn't be surprised to see this new rule eventually flow down through the federation, opens and ultimately to your local bass club.

Personally, I like the decision...  Stop by our message boards and share your thoughts on this topic.

Big Smallmouth Bass in Cold Water

Since most lakes in the North Eastern United States have not iced up yet, we decided to shoot a video on catching deep water smallmouth bass using Keitech Fat Swing Impact swimbaits.  Not something one thinks would typically work in 40 degree water, but it does!  You've got to try this technique, it's that good... 

We had a great day on the water and got some really nice video footage with several smallmouth bass between 3 and 4 lbs.  Subscribe to BASSIN' USA's YouTube Channel to be notified when we release this awesome video!

Amazing Fish Finder iPhone App!

While browsing YouTube I came across a video that someone posted for a “fish finder app”.  It has over 100,000 views so far, check this out:

I'm always amused by the crazy things people think up to trick people on YouTube.  This one actually had many people out there searching for the app on the iPhone and android market.  The trick here was that the guy was simply taking a picture and the image he pointed to (claiming it was a new "fish finder app") was nothing more that a screen shot of a fish finder which was stored in his iPhone gallery...

So the lesson here is "if it sounds too good to be true... "

On a side note, if you like playing gags on your fishing buddies, you could have a lot of fun with this video!!!
