THREE THINGS:

CRÈME’D ‘EM.  Sixty years to the season, the world of bass fishing – and really all fishing – changed forever as Nick Creme created the first plastic bait in his Akron, OH home.  The entrepreneurial spirit and fish-catching reputation grew and spawned one of the fishing industry’s biggest niches as bass baits expanded from the first plastic worms made by Crème.

ETHERIAL ETHEL.  The story of how a single, huge bass changed fishing from consumption to catch-and-release in the matter of a generation.  Learn what “Ethel” meant to Texas (and national) bass fishing and just how she got her name.

YOUR OWN RECORD.  The North Dakota state largemouth bass record sits at 8 pounds 8 ounces from Nelson Lake, and has stood since 1983. The power plant reservoir still holds the best chance at a new state record with its warm waters and year-round growing season.
