So we’ve talked recently about terminal tackle storage and storing hard baits. But what about soft plastics? Well I’ve done a few different things over the years. I’ve tried putting a bunch of baits in their original packaging into big ziplock bags. I’ve tried making one big bulk bag of baits by dumping several packs […]
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.

Organizing tackle and dealing with terminal tackle storage is about as much fun as fishing, especially in the wintertime. And it’s really the only thing close to fishing some of my northern brethren can do this time of year — short of sitting on a bucket over a hole in the ice. There are more […]
Featured Image Credit: Alan McGuckin of Major League Fishing Wondering how the pros use their crankbaits when the water gets cold? Well, I was curious too, so I caught up with Kevin VanDam to ask him. Here’s my top 5 questions and what he told me. How deep do you fish a crankbait in cold, muddy […]
A couple years ago when MISSLE Baits introduced The 48 worm, they decided to put together a video series called 48 Ways to Rig a Worm. So, naturally when you’re trying to come up with 48 different ways to rig a worm, you’re going to be splitting hairs at times and you’re going to have […]
Featured Image Credit: William Redmond | Mustad Not one individual on this earth has spent more time with a crankbait in his hand than Kevin VanDam. He’s helped design some of the most effective crankbaits of all time and shaped and molded the technique of crankbait fishing in countless other ways. One such innovation is […]
Now obviously being a 33-year-old bachelor, I’m not talking about saving my literal marriage. I’m talking about my marriage to kayak fishing. Though I could definitely see the advantages of coming home to your spouse not worn out from paddling all day. “But babe, I had no choice once I paddled so far but to […]
Some time has passed since Major League Fishing (MLF) acquired Fishing League Worldwide (FLW). In those six weeks, there has been some confusion about the 2020 FLW Season. The original format was laid out to incorporate MLF’s ‘every fish counts’ format and FLW’s traditional five-fish format into each stop of the FLW Pro Circuit. However, […]
It’s that time of year again. Time to buy your favorite angler a little something for Christmas. But anglers are surprisingly difficult to shop for. At first glance you probably think, I’ll just buy him some bass fishing gifts or something for fishing. But buying ‘something for fishing’ has a multi-billion dollar impact on our […]
Let’s face it: We all know it’s important to keep track of our fish catches through a fishing log, or logbook for short. I’m talking about the type you might find tucked away in your granddad’s attic, filled with handwritten details from fishing expeditions of years past. It’s something we should do, but those of […]
In the south, we all too often bail on the topwater bite after waking up to frost on our vehicles for the first time. As anglers, we have a tendency to fish the air temperatures and not the water temperatures. In the spring, a warm sunny day will have us burning baits back to the […]
