Cool Video – Bison vs. Elk

Not really bass fishing related, but came across this cool video on BassFan.com DockTalk.  This was shot by Ken Cook out side of his house, its really kind of unbelievable

Ken said: “The bull elk had a lot of frustration built up from the rut, but he picked a fight with the wrong guy in this huge bison. I’ve never seen anything like this before.”

Well, there was your distraction from work for today, get back to work

Updated Bass Fishing Pics

Hi All,

Last day of February and I have just got a bunch of photos scanned and added to my gallery on my main site.  Notice that there are two pages of pics.  Many of them have multiple pics when you click on the thumbnails.  Just wanted to point this out, as there is not always a lot of content change on my main site, so check it out.  I hope to have some pics from Amistad in the middle of March.

Hope you like the pics, most of the new ones are tournament related.  Also, Free Bass Fishing Seminars this weekend for my MN readers:

Anatomy of the Bassin’ Blog

This post is to help all your readers optimize your time spent here and get the most out of the Bassin’ Blog.  So I am going to break down the different functions and options you have.  Basically the Blog is broken in to 2 columns of information.  On the right is are the listing of most recent posts and summaries.  On the left (sidebar) there are a myriad of blocks of info and tools to help you get the info you are looking for.

Back to Main Page – link will get you back home no matter what area you are in.

Subscribe to Blog – place where you can enter email and you will get all new posts delivered to your inbox as soon as they are published.  This is handy so that you do not have to remember to go out and look to see if new content is here, plus you will have the info before anyone else.  You can also subscribe to individual topics and post if there is one you are particularly interested in, you will get all comments and updates.

Category Archives – I assign every post to at least one category, so that you can browse though these categories and find info quick, most are self explanatory.  ‘Tournament Info’ is where I log all my practice and tournament days on the water

Recent Comments – This displays the 10 most recent comments by other readers and myself, often I will add updated on comments to certain topics there, rather then creating a new post, plus I usually answer all questions left in a comment

Recent Entries – Browse most recent posts by title and date

Quicksearch – great way to look up a topic or word and see all the posts that contain that info.  Lakes like Amistad, Guntersville, Minnetonka or Patoka….    Or maybe baits like Tru-Tungsten, Secret Weapon or Swim Jigs….   You need to keep in mind that there are over 190 posts and growing every day, most of the time you can only see the current month on the front page, there is a lot of info if you are willing to dig a little.

Google Ads – these are text ads based upon keyword matching, everytime you click on them I make a few cents, so feel free and help offset the costs of doing my blog and other websites

Monthly Archives – Browse by previous months, go back to January 2006 and see the humble beginnings of this Blog

BlogRoll Links – Other sites with good info that I like, check them out at your leisure

Syndicate This Blog – These are links for RSS (Real Simple Syndication) basiclly you can sign up using these links and content will be pushed to your Feed Reader, there are many and MyYahoo and MyMSN have them built in, if you are interested I can help you if you get stuck.  Just another way to be on the cutting edge of getting information.

 – if you see this symbol, it is a link to help you get RSS feeds setup through FeedBurner, click here and its falling down easy to get recent entries of the blog to show up on your MyYahoo or MyMSN home pages :0

Hope you find this helpful and just ask if you have questions.

Bass Fishing in Cinema

This morning I came across a small blurb about a potential new movie about Bass Fishing.

“Lionsgate has hooked spec script “The Bass Master,” a broad comedy penned by Tab Murphy and Devin Maurer that Todd Garner will produce through his shingle Broken Road Prods”

I am kind of excited, will the new Ike movie or this one premier first?  I have already come across a few critics that are mocking the potential of a bass movie, and the necessity of two in the works at the same time, but how much different will it really be from “Days of Thunder” or “Talladega Nights – The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” ?  I’ll watch, not sure my wife will go with me, but oh well

What are your thoughts, leave it, love it, don’t care?

Like listening to Bass Fishing shows on the Web?

When I am eating lunch at work or playing on the internet at home, I like to tune into a couple different places where you can stream or download radio shows on fishing and the outdoors.

Here are a few of my favorites:
Bass Zone Live – Currently archived shows with Ike, Mike McClelland & Jon Bondy
BassFan.com – Shows with many BASS & FLW pros, Carver, MN FLW Pro Jim Moynagh recently did a good show
Catch’n.com Radio – More local and regional stuff for MN area, but some good national stuff as well.
Black Water Bassin’ – There is no single page, will have to cruise through tournament news to find the two episodes so far.
Podcast.net – They have a whole section of PodCasts for fishing here, I have listened to a few, the Daimon lures shows are pretty solid.

You can also found the radio shows I have done to download here & here….

Does anyone else have any other good site for this?

Year in Review – Glance at 2007

Hey all,

Yesterday was the 1 year anniversary from my very first post.  365 days fly by in a hurry.  I thought I would just recap the journey that was year 1 for me in blogging.  When I started last January, there was not much out there for Bass Fishing Blogs, there are a few more now, but still somewhat of a void.

To date I have 17 subscribers via email, thank you to you whover you are.  I made 182 posts containing 95,583 words, which almost exactly a post every other day, not bad for year one.  There were also 156 comments from readers and myself.  I actually cannot believe I had that much to say or share

The most popular and viewed post was: More Chatterbait Options….
Most Subscribed to Post: BSX BioSonix – Gimmick or Real Deal?
Most Discussed (most comments): More Chatterbait Options….
Most Frequent Commentator: Billy Harris, follow closely by Bass Pundit

Over the last 3 months I have avereged about 33 visitors per day and over 60 pageviews daily, when I first started, I was not sure anyone would read it…..

Towards the end of the year, I have added much more in the way of sounds and pictures to enhance the multimedia experience.  Look for more of that in 2007.

I want to thank all of you that left comments, that helps me to know you are reading and care, it helps drive me to keep posting and digging for relevan conent.

What do all of you want to see, leave a comment if there are topics or ideas you have or want to see.

More Bass Fishing Radio with Me

Hey all,

Added a podcast feature, just click on the play button.

Another online fishing radio show that I did has recently been released.  It is a feature on Catch’n.com Radio
Check it out on Catch’n.com.

If you liked the other show at all, this one is a little longer and spends more time on specific lures and techniques, I think it is a better show with more info.  Here is the link again: http://catch-n.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=7496

or if you prefer to download the show directly – http://www.catch-n.com/audio/richlindgren.mp3 – careful it is a long show

Hope you enjoy & feedback is welcome….

Patoka Revisited & Looking forward to 2007

Hey all,

This post serves a couple purposes:
1: To revisit Patoka and talk about some key things that worked for me.
2: Preview improvements of entries and improved speed of info

The following pictures are the two baits that were most productive for me in practice and during the tournament at the Weekend Series Divisional on Patoka Reservoir.  As you may know, I did not have a terrific tournament, but these baits were productive and I think I just did not find enough quality areas to put them to work during the tournament.  Review tournament entries here.

  The first pic is a Lucky Craft Flat Mini DR Crankbait in a splatter back pattern.  This was my best lure in practice and in tournament for catching keeper fish as well as several other fish that were close to measuring.  As you see I almost always change out the from treble and put on a red treble hook. 

 This was my second best lure, I caught my first keeper in practice on it as well as many fish that were very close.  This is a 9/16oz. Secret Weapon Lure Spinnerbait with a custom skirt that I made and I used a trailer hook the entire tournament.  I like adding just a few strands of red to my skirts

These pictures were taken with my new Motorola Q (exclusively at VerizonWireless.com) which is my new cell phone.  The great thing about this, is that I will be able to take pictures and videos of practice and tournaments which will add to the detail of my Blog entries.  I believe taking pictures of the actual baits that I use will add to the value as I tend to make tweaks and modifications to my tournament baits (i.e. Red Trebles, trimmed skirts, trailer, etc.)  It is one thing to say I was throwing a jig, bot show you a pic so you can see the exact color, trailer and how its rigged adds much more value.  I also will be able to enter textual blogs from my phone which will allow me to get more info to all of you quicker

Let me know if you think this will add value and intrigues you to keep reading in 2007….
