"Make yourself a plan for all the items you need, schedule out the order of how you’ll rig the boat and then just pay close attention to every detail." – Jason Christie on how to rig your boat with organization in mind

Meticulous boat rigging
bassmaster.com
Probably my biggest project for the off-season is rigging my new boat. It’s definitely a labor of love, but it’s also something I look forward to.

"Given the choice between hunting and fishing, weather permitting, I’m going to choose fishing most of the time," Alton Jones writes.
What about you? Which would you choose?

Fishing during the off-season
bassmaster.com
I’m one of those guys that likes to fish during the off season. I know many of my fellow Elite anglers prefer to take a break, but I actually enjoy getting out and fishing through fall and winter.

You have more options now than almost any other time of the year. Enjoy!

The key to catching more bass in fall
bassmaster.com
Fall is upon us. With longer nights and cold fronts, the leaves begin to turn, the waters cool and the fish move shallow. One predictable pattern this time of year is the migration of shad into the creeks … and the resulting bass feeding frenzy!

Meet Jason Forsgren.

Meet Jason Forsgren. He’s a Tennessee native and lifelong angler, who loves bass fishing and Toyota USA, and we’ll be touring his 2016 Tundra SR5 on the bass_nation Instagram this week. “I’ve been fishing since I’ve been walking. My grandfather pretty much taught me everything I know," Jason said. "Toyota is easy to back. I’ve never had anything go wrong with my Toyota trucks.”

A Bandit Footloose stays super shallow for working over submerged grass or other cover that reaches to just beneath the surface and for prompting strikes from fish that won’t quite commit to a traditional topwater lure. #LandItWithBandit
