The Polar Bear Circuit held its second event of the year last Saturday at Six Span in Elkhart, and the cold wintery weather didn’t stop Floyd Wolkins and Zach McNary from taking home first place with 9.28 pounds of bass.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - B.A.S.S. announced that it will be adding a Junior Bassmaster Division to its annual slate of events in the Mossy Oak Fishing Bassmaster High School Series.
High school tournaments are scheduled for Lake Hartwell in Anderson, S.C., on March 2; Lake Guntersville in Guntersville, Ala., on March 30; Norfolk Lake in Mountain Home, Ark., on April 28; and Lake Shasta in Redding, Calif., on May 11. A field of up to 50 junior division teams will compete in each event with accompanying coaches or team captains.
Anglers in northern climates have always known the fishing doesn’t stop when temperatures dip below freezing and the water gets hard.
Ice fishing continues to attract anglers to their favorite lakes for everything from panfish and perch, to walleye and northern pike, and Shimano is addressing their tackle needs. Now available - or soon to be at selected tackle dealers - Shimano introduces a new line-up of cork grip Convergence ice rods, along with a selection of Sienna combos featuring EVA grip rods matched with Sienna 500 spinning reels.

If results from the recent Michiana Walleye Association (MWA) tournament were an indication of how the St. Joseph River has responded to stocking efforts, the answer is very well!
Thirteen teams competed on the stretch between Twin Branch and Elkhart during the eight-hour event. They caught 70 legal walleyes measuring 15 inches or bigger, not to mention more than 250 sub-legal walleyes.
Thats pretty darn impressive when you consider that state stocking efforts have fallen off the past decade and walleye fishing was on the downswing.
