The Hawg Forum / Full moon night fishing??
« on: August 04, 2017, 11:11:28 AM »
I'm fairly new to night fishing for bass. I've been seeing a bunch of opinions on it, but what do all of you think about night fishing around the full moon?  Some say they don't feed well around it.  Some say they do, but only at night.  Some say to treat it like sun and fish the shade pockets.  Some say it doesn't effect them at all in smaller lakes and ponds.  Just wondering if anyone has any input on this.

The Hawg Forum / Live Well cleaning??
« on: July 10, 2017, 08:58:16 AM »
My live well stinks!!!!   Now and then a stray bait fish of a few crawfish will end up in the bottom, after I drain it.  I won't notice, or will forget they are there, until the next time I go out.   So now I've had three dead, half digested crawfish rotting away in there.   You can smell it if you get any where near the boat. 

My question is if anyone uses any type of soap to clean their live well?  I'm concerned of using something like dish soap and leaving a residue or something that will harm or effect the next fish that need to spend the morning in the livewell. 

Any suggestions?  Does anyone else have this stinky problem? You must, right?

Regional Bass Fishing Tournament Listings / Southern RI trails??
« on: May 05, 2017, 09:31:44 AM »
I live in Richmond RI.  Does anyone know of any tournament trails down in this part of the state?  I see a bunch of listing for last years schedules, but not for 2017.  I fish a Tuesday day trail up in mass and a Thursday night in northern RI. I love fishing them and plan to continue, but I'd love to find something a little closer to home also.  Thank you in advance for any information.


The Hawg Forum / Bowdish Lake
« on: April 28, 2017, 09:27:21 PM »
Fished an evening tournament at Bowdish last night.  The bite was a bit slow for my boat.  Ended up with two fish for 4.6 (or so).  Managed to hook up with a nice 3.5, with a big old belly.  Water temps were varying with depth, but stayed around 60-61 for most of the night.  I'm going to try an attach a picture of the 3.5, but this is my first time posting a picture here, so no promises.  Anybody else ready for this April wind and rain to let up??

Fishing Tackle & Equipment Reviews / Piscifun Line Spooler Review
« on: March 20, 2017, 08:27:05 PM »
While I'm getting ready for this weather to break and to get back out on the water, I am in the process of putting new line on all my reels.  My wife got me the Piscifun Line Spooler for Christmas (she says because she thought it would be useful, but I think it's because she is sick of holding the spool on a pencil while I complain about the amount of tension she is applying  (giggle))  I've been hesitant to try it, thinking that it was just another gimmick item designed to catch Anglers.  With so many reels to do, I decided to give it a try.  Boy was I glad that I did.  This thing works great!!! It adjusts for use on both baitcasters and spinnign reels.  Putting line on a baitcaster is pretty cut and dry, off the top of the line spool and over the top of the reel spool, but spinners always seem to get me.  This thing gets rid of any problems associated with putting line on a spinning reel.  The spooler holds the line and allows it to spin on two different axis at the same time, essentially eliminating line twists and line jump offs, on spinning reels.  It will also adjust to which ever tension you prefer, as well as adjust to hold large or small spools.  The reel seats on it, just like on an actual fishing rod.

Maybe some of you already have this and it's old news, but it is new to me so I wanted to share the info.  You can find them most anywhere online for around $30.  If you have trouble spooling spinning reels or have many reels to spool, give this thing a try.  It saved me lots of time and frustration.
