    I was granted ...more access to ExpertVoice two years ago when I started working at Bass Pro Shops. Previously, the program was only available to employees of certain affiliated companies, but now it’s open to everyone! If you’re knowledgeable in any of the areas pictured, follow the link below and apply to become a member. Through this platform, you can engage with brands in your area(s) of expertise, take lessons, and unlock discounts on quality gear. While browsing products, you can use reviews left by other experts to compare items and choose the right gear for you, then you can leave your own reviews on any products you purchase to return the favor! You can also engage with other experts by posting photos relevant to your interests. Brands that work with ExpertVoice will often choose top experts for exclusive product testing and events.

  3. Getting bigger! Must've seen a dozen 16-20" fish cruising the shallows today, including another ~20" tailing over a bed. They're just not all in ...more the biting mood yet but it'll happen!

  4. Well, it’s a start! I about drove myself insane today over two 20+ inch bass I saw spawning in the shallows that were not interested in the free food I was throwing ...more at them. It was awesome to watch but equally frustrating seeing those giant tails come out of the water!

  5. An unusual start to the year on this chilly and windy day, but big catfish are just as fun to catch on a spinnerbait as big largemouth!

    1. Nice kitty!! 🎣🐟
    2. Sweet. I pulled up a nice cat two days later in that lake with a crankbait. It broke the tip of my pole. I wasn't ready for a cat.
    3. David Wells 0
      the weed line past the bridge is nothing but carp and bowfin. I have never had much luck fishing deep. Inexperienced at that. still nice to be on the lake and away ...more from it all though.
    4. Yeah it’s not looking good this year! I blame the carp. I’m about ready to get a bowfishing rig and start taking them out!
    5. David Wells 0
      Meant caught a thing.

      Nice to see you back Kaitlin!! Nice catch!! I haven't caught thinking in three trips. Bummed
    7. Robert Coleman 0
      I've been there! 😞😞😞
    8. I did think I had a huge bass on! Can’t say I wasn’t a little bummed when I saw a catfish tail come out of the water but a fish is a fish!

  6. And my biggest catch yesterday, another beautiful Gulf flounder! I'm convinced they know that the season is closed.

  7. The biggest red from yesterday; so close to being a keeper but not quite there yet! Things are looking really good for slot drum next summer!

      I've never seen a red that was as silver as that one.
  8. Another would-be keeper Gulf flounder!

  9. The first of what would have been a limit of Gulf flounder for me yesterday! Unfortunately, NC closed the season for all three flounder species in our waters after ...more finding the southern flounder populations have taken a hit from overfishing. Why they don't think anglers can tell the difference between the three species is a mystery to me, but I'm glad we can still enjoy reeling them in!
