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 […]
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.

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 […]
We thought it would be fun to have ANGLR Expert, Shaye Baker, take a stab at guessing the 20 winning baits of 20 major events in 2020. Do you agree or disagree with his predictions? Let us know in a comment below or on social media! #1. Bassmaster Elite Series at St. Johns River | […]
So I’m pretty OCD about crankbait storage — to some degree. At least I have a tendency to get OCD about it from time to time. I’ll go through it all, organize it very meticulously, then inevitably let that tapestry unravel over time until my gear is in total chaos again. Then I’ll go through […]
There are thousands of different options when trying to purchase a crankbait. There’s likely hundreds of thousands of variations when you factor in colors and sizes. So needless to say, it’s impossible for any of us to try them all. Even certain companies now have too many baits to sample top to bottom. But we […]
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 […]
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 […]
