May 14, 2018 · It’s because the spectrum of what people think is a good idea to post online is hilarious. From short-shorts pictures from the 1970s to ludicrous comments about how people see themselves, oftentimes online dating is a good old-fashioned barrel of laughs.

After the spawn, females abandon their nests and leave the smaller male bass up shallow to protect and guard fry. These larger female bass will move out to slightly deeper waters around gravel-spawning flats and pockets in order to seek shelter. Female bass will use shallower piles, in six to 12 feet, to recover from the stressful spawning process and feed to regain strength. These fish can be hard to catch immediately after the spawn, but after a couple of weeks, they begin feeding heavily. Start your search for brush piles on the first slight drop or shallow tapering points outside of spawning pockets. If you can find these productive piles just after the spawn, you can catch some heavy stringers while others are still beating the banks catching skinny post-spawn males. As the water warms up and fish start to move to deeper summer haunts, you need to look for deeper brush piles. Usually the 12- to 18-foot range works best. The depth of a productive brush pile will depend on water...
The type of brush piles I look for during the summer months are the ones that have branches extending out. I like for the pile to be pretty good-sized so it can hold a number of fish, with a lot of branches to create shade and plenty of space between the branches for the fish to swim around inside the pile. Sycamore or willow trees seem to make the best brush piles in the central part of the country. More importantly, though, is where the brush is located. Many anglers look for brush on points and ledges in the summertime, and I do, too, but these areas are easily found by other fishermen and become less productive. My most consistent pattern in the summer is finding brush piles on “do nothing” banks. Usually when you find a brush pile in this area, most fishermen overlook it—giving you a special spot to yourself. I focus on mud or gravel flats that are off the main lake. It also helps to have a major spawning area and the main river channel in the vicinity. Shad use these flats all...
There are three main baits I recommend when fishing brush piles: a ribbon-tailed worm, a jig, and a crankbait. I cast a 9-1/2-inch Luck “E” Strike Ringworm in a variety of colors, but you can never go wrong with something purple or close to it. I use a 1/2-ounce or 3/8-ounce Bass Pro Shops tungsten bullet weight with the worm Texas-rigged. I cast past the brush pile and drag it slowly into it. I like to make sure the worm is always on the bottom. Once the worm gets to the brush pile, I’ll slowly work it over the branches. After I pull it over a branch, I’ll let it sink to the bottom. Then I’ll slowly lift my rod tip up and down a few inches, which gives the worm an enticing yo-yo action that can produce a strike. If a fish doesn’t take it, I’ll pull it over the next branch and repeat the process. I’ll make many casts to the brush from different angles trying to cover the entire pile and the area immediately surrounding it. The fun part about fishing brush in the summer is that they...

Apr 30, 2007 · It had white powder sand, water warmer than the pool, and plenty of chairs. It wasn’t hard to find one in the shade although it was impossible to get under a palappa since they were always saved. We LOVED the hammocks during the day and at night. We did not find the vendors annoying at all but instead found them entertaining.
