Fishing Fact

Confidence in the lures or baits tied to the end of your line plays a large role in your success when on the water. And the key to any go-to offering is having faith that they will, regardless of the conditions, catch fish. Go-to lures and baits also stand the test of time. Every angler has their own collection of favorites, but here are the ones that came out on top during a survey of western bass pros: #1 Spinnerbaits, #2 Weightless Plastics, #3 Dartheads, #4 Lipless Crankbaits and #5 The Jig-n-Pig.

Photo Tip

Invest in a circular polarizing filter. Light from the sky, reflections and glare all contain a polarized component that can reduce the saturation of some colors and compromise the clarity of photos. Polarizing filters are designed to reduce these effects, making your images sharper with deeper tones. And it's a benefit that can't be duplicated later on a computer. Polarizing filters are at their best outdoors, where they darken blue skies, enhance green foliage and remove glare from water. The key to great results is taking pictures at as close to 90 degrees from the light source as possible.
