Fishing For Hogs Brag Board


The Fishing For Hogs Brag Board is where you can do some bragging about your catch by having me post pictures of your Bass Hog.

Use my contact form to receive the email address to use to send your pictures to me.

Sorry about the extra step but like you, I try to eliminate receiving junk mail from the mailbots out there.

When you get the return email from me, include the following:

Your name, location fished, weather conditions and the date your bass hog fish were caught.

I'll be happy to help you have fun bragging about your luck out on the lake.

Keep The Hooks Wet!

Rookie Bass Angler, Matt Mcgoldrick, Landing His 1st Bass

Matt Mcgoldrick Realizing Bass Fishing Is Fun and Peaceful

This year, my nephew, Matt Mcgoldrick, joined the ranks of fellow anglers who know the enjoyment, peace and fun of chasing the bass hog while practicing Catch and Release.
Being a rookie who is learning tips from me in person, Matt is shown here holding a 1-1/2 pound bass caught on a February 2009 morning with partly sunny skies, a water temp of 48 degrees and an outside temp 63 degrees. He caught this bass in about 4 feet of water using his 1st Baitcaster with a spinner bait.
He is learning fast...almost too fast. Now, I have a bragging competition within the family. Let the fun begin!

UPDATE: Matt Is Becoming A Serious Competitor As Shown Below In Just Three Months

Choose an image to begin
Looks like my nephew Matt Mcgoldrick is still trying to catch the Basshogfishing Brag Board record for this year.
The first two images are the same fish that hit the scales at 4 pounder and the last two images are a 6 pounder were caught with over cast skies, air temp 82, water temp high 70's on a rage tail shad.
He is fishing in the same private pond that I caught the 11 pounder; I think he is still looking to either tie with me or try and move ahead.
Matt tells me it is hard at times because he has to share this lake with the most snakes I have ever seen in one place. That is why he is fishing over there and not me.
