shot horribly in the first half they were only down by four points at the half However the Eagles were able to win their third game of the year on a threepointer by Alex Garcia and Joey Agnews two free throws I thought we really played Valenzuela said about his teams performance against Pleasanton We walked the ball down the court and did not play with any sense of Valenzuela said his team did

to land black bass Many fishermen experience diffi culty in locating black bass Whether they are fishing in a lake they have never been in or fishing in a lake they have fished for years most people can catch bass after they find them but you need to find them first Black bass are predators They feed on just about anything they catch and swallow At certain times of the year they are very predictable But more often than not they will elude fisher man I have finished with some of the best bass fisherman in the world Sure some of those days we were successful in catching numbers of big bass But these guys are professionals They know things that normal fisherman dont Thats why they are so successful right Wrong These guys pay attention to whats going on When looking for bass you need to be alert Observe everything Most of the time its com mon sense but fishermen just cant put it together Every time you catch a fish you should leam something What type of structure did the fish come from Was there any wind at the time Was it ear ly or late Cloudy or clear skies What depth was it These and many more questions are asked and answered in just a few sec onds each time a professional boats another bass It is this question and answer process that enables the fisherman to become more successful His ability to evaluate these answers helps him predict where he may catch his next fish The most common problem bass fisherman have is they fish too slow I believe in fishing fast and covering a lot of water By using fast moving baits such as spinner baits and crank baits I can make more casts per minute than by worm fishing I use my trolling motor more each day than my big motor I will use the outboard to get me to the best looking area but then my trolling motor goes to work I rarely turn it off when looking for bass Bass will relate to some type of structure most of the time Use your trolling motor to fish the structure as rapidly as possible with fast moving baits Once I get a strike in an area Ill Keith Warren slow down and fish thoroughly The best big bass bait day in and day out is a worm or a jig But Ill only fish these baits after I have found a good area Drop a worm or jig into the cover I call this fishing targets Usually if a bass is in a target area he will hit a worm or jig right away Many times bass will not be aggressive enough to chase a bait down Youll notice a boil in the water or a short strike behind your lure If this happens slow down Worm and jig fishing is productive but only once you have located an area holding fish If an angler is going to locate bass he must make as many casts as he can and cover as much water as possible A worm orjig just doesnt eliminate enough water as quickly as a spinner bait or crank bait Just think of how many casts you make per hour When worm fishing you may make one cast per minute But with spinner baits and crank baits you can make two to three casts per minute All of a sudden you have just doubled or tripled your casts and your odds Keith Warren is the Host of The Texas Angler Television Show which broadcasts TODAYS CROSSWORD PUZZLE Seasonal Saving Coolant System Special ACROSS 1
