Hooking yourself or someone else is a miserable affair. What has to happen next is at times even more miserable, especially if you’re ill-prepared to do so. Driving a hook into someone is usually instantaneous and unexpected, so there’s no anticipation. Removing a hook from someone has palpable anticipation on the other hand. So here […]
About Shaye Baker
Shaye Baker started fishing with his dad in Alabama as soon as they could find a life jacket small enough to fit him. Competing with his father in local tournaments, Shaye quickly found a hunger for competitive bass fishing. He furthered his fishing career at Auburn University helping to establish the Auburn University Bass Fishing Club. While at Auburn, Shaye served as the President of the club and qualified to fish on the traveling team amassing six Top 5 finishes including two 3rd place finishes in consecutive FLW College Fishing National Championships. While beginning to dabble in the world of outdoor journalism, Shaye continued to fish semi-pro events finishing in the Top 5 in the Bassmaster Opens, FLW Costa Series and BFLs. Finding himself at a crossroads, Shaye chose to put down the rod and pick up the pen and camera to focus on his career in outdoor journalism. Shaye has had work featured in Bassmaster Magazine, FLW Outdoors Magazine, B.A.S.S.Times and the Japanese bass fishing magazine Basser. Shaye has also had work featured on ESPN and Wired2Fish.com, FLWfishing.com and Bassmaster.com. While working with B.A.S.S., Shaye initiated and spearheaded their GoPro division which brought more video coverage to the fans than had ever been done before in competitive fishing. After his tenure with some of the best companies in the business, Shaye identified a need for competitive fishing where participation didn’t cost a fortune. By founding UPLOADED, the Online Fishing Series, Shaye established a free tournament series where anglers could film their fish catches and upload their videos to compete against other anglers for prizes.

A lot more goes into picking the right jig trailer than most might think. A trailer not only changes the profile of a jig but also the way it swims and falls through the water column. Depending on the size and action of the trailer, the same jig can be used in vastly different scenarios […]
It’s July 17th, 1999. I’m in my granddad’s pickup truck with my dad headed to Atlanta, Georgia. I have a terrible memory, but I know the exact date because I have the original bill of sale from where I bought my first bass boat that day. Well… from where WE bought my first bass boat. […]
The short answer, yes. You’ll never see me punch with a dropshot rod or dropshot with a flipping stick. So obviously there are techniques that require specific gear. But on the flip side of that, you could use a 7’ medium heavy bait-casting rod 75% of the time and get by. So let’s dive into […]
Does brush in a public waterway belong to anyone in particular? The obvious and short answer, no. Other than the governing body of the waterway. But this debate isn’t really a letter of the law type question. It’s more of a fishing ethics question. Still… no, in my opinion. Bass Fishing Brush Piles | How […]
The pre-spawn is perhaps the best and worst time of the year to go fishing. Feast or famine. A time of haves and have-nots. The fish are on the move and hard to pin down. You can fish through an area on Friday and get several bites… then come back Saturday to a ghost town […]
Although there are days on the water while pre-spawn bass fishing where you can keep one rod in your hand all day, it’s still hard for me to nail down a top 5 pre-spawn baits list. I have had phenomenal days in the early spring with a dozen or more different baits. So I’m going […]
I’m going to impart a little knowledge on you high schoolers today. Just an old man here, so no need to pay me any attention. I had a kid in college call me Mr. Baker recently and I about slapped him for the blatant disrespect. I’m not that old. But I know what’s it like […]
