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 […]
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.

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 […]
As more and more anglers hit the water these days, we are constantly in pursuit of new ways to outsmart the ever evolving bass. Finesse tactics have long been the remedy and seem to still be the frontrunner in cracking the code when it comes to catching overly pressured fish. One finesse bait that has […]
How to fish professionally… that’s an interesting question. And not to skirt the question, but it is one that has several different answers for different anglers. Furthermore, I’m not sure that I have the best track record for answering this question… I had the same question posed to me over the phone by a young […]
It’s that time of year again. Time for the Bassmaster Classic. The 50th Bassmaster Classic to be exact. For half a century, this has been the event that we’ve looked to crown the king of the sport. But now, for the first time ever, a lot of the big names will be sitting it out. […]
The shakeup in the professional bass fishing industry, which saw dozens of anglers leave organizations to join the newly formed Bass Pro Tour, has been widely talked about over the last year. In recent months, we actually saw a couple anglers retrace their steps and opt to leave the BPT and return to B.A.S.S. through […]
In the immortal words of Jon Snow, winter is here. There’s not much we can do about it. The fishing off-season means the bite has slowed to a grind. And for many of my northern brothers and sisters, the only option you have right now is to sit over a hole in the ice. So […]
Is bass fishing a sport? This is a question that’s been kicked around for decades now, ever since Ray Scott brought a few guys together back in 1967 to add a little structure to competitive bass fishing. And since you’re reading this on a fishing website, chances are you’ll agree with my opinion, that yes, […]
There are a lot of them out there these days, but what actually goes into making soft plastic baits? We sat down to chat about this with John Crews, Bassmaster Elite Series angler and owner of MISSILE Baits. When your livelihood comes from being just a little better than the competition, attention to detail is […]
This year I’ll be fishing the B.A.S.S. Nation events here in Alabama in an attempt to do what my father did 32 years ago. In 1988, dad won his first Alabama B.A.S.S. Federation State Championship when I was a year old. He was 32 at the time; I’m 33 now. So it just feels like […]
