HOW TO BE THE SQUIRREL

 

The RecipeS:

GEAR GUIDE

ROD

Y

REEL

Pick up a dozen leeches at your local bait shop.

LURE

Hook those fat leeches onto some simple, bright colored, jig heads.

BAIT

F

LANDING NET

Bring along your dip net and bring it down quickly upon those torpedo critters.

FILLET KNIFE

An optimum bass knife is 7.5 inches, will bend an inch or so when flexed and has an easy to clean plastic or rubber handle.

Equipment

Apparel

HEAD 

360 degrees of protection from the sun. If the bugs get too bad, bucket hats will hold a head net off of your face as well. 

SUNGLASSES

A great all-around pair of fishing glasses includes the superior clarity of glass lenses with polarized, color-blocking technology that expose the presence of fish beneath the surface.

SHIRT

Look for a UPF protected, breathable long sleeve with integrated vents and chest pockets.

UNDERWEAR

Ex Officio, always. Wear one pair all weekend with the most comfortable, breathable, quick drying briefs.

SHORTS

Find a pair of durable, quick drying, stain resistant shorts with reinforced pockets.

SHOES

On the shore, dock and boat deck an amphibious pair of footwear will dry quickly, breathe on a warm summer day and secure your footing with reliable rubber tread.

COMPLETE A BASS HARVEST?

1. Did You Harvest?

2. Did You Eat?

3. Repeat!

You harvested a natural food source from your local environment. That's awesome. 

It's an honest, well earned meal. Proceeds from that license you bought will protect and sustain more acres of habitat for future animals. 

You deserve a reward. Maybe one day, after you submit photos of your hunt and harvest, you'll receive a bass token, that unlocks merchandise exclusive to those are one with the bass. That day is not today. But you're excited even without the incentive, you say?! Well, submit and share your bounty anyways!
