Chris Pereira has been a North American Fishing Club member since 2010. All though he enjoys fishing for lots of different species of fish—hybrid striped bass are his favorite.
Let me bring myself back to a place of celestial navigation, salt spray, the smell of squid and the wind pushing against my face. This moment seems like a lifetime, yet somehow it always goes too fast. How can 23 consecutive hours of fishing go so quickly is beyond me! When I leave the ramp, it’s usually the beginning of a 20-hour trip.
Meet North American Fishing Club Life Member Ricardo Lenzcano. Riccardo spends at least 120 days on the water each year.
I stopped by a good friend’s office to touch base after not crossing paths much during a busy season. The type of friend that you don’t have to see for five years and you can act like you haven’t been separated for more than a few days—the best kind.
Meet NAF member Clayton Rimer. Clyaton, loves fishing for brown, rainbow and lake trout.
Bass fishing has many traps to avoid—running aground on shallow flats, hidden boulders in the tailrace, falling water in a tidal fishery. But there's one trap you should run to, not away from, during the prespawn period—lipless crankbaits like the Rat-L-Trap.
One of the questions that I was asked was in regards to which jig trailer I prefer and why? This is a pertinent question to address because using a jig for bass is a solid presentation anywhere in the country, especially during the spring.
I’m a bass tournament fanatic. I love to fish them, but I also love to follow the nation’s two largest series: the FLW and Bassmaster Elite. I actually get geeked out and keep up a fantasy team… It’s silly I know, but hey—it gives me something to do.
Rods are the most important piece of fishing equipment we have, if you ask me. Rod building sparked my interest about five years ago when I needed a beach shark rod. I couldn’t find one that was heavy enough, long enough and had the reel seat low enough for me to reach. I now have the perfect rod, but it definitely isn’t something I can buy from the store.
A couple of my fishing buddies have been wearing an insulated zip coveralls for longer than I have been walking and talking. It was this week however that they weren’t giving me any grief about my Ice Armor suit. Literally soaked to the bone, it cut their day short, and I stayed comfy!
