I just wanted to share some information with you all. I just watched Bass Edge season 1 on DVD that I ordered from http://www.bassedge.com/
Bass Edge is hosted by Aaron Martin and airs on WFN four days a week. Season 1 features 12 episodes which is 10+ hours of content. There is also 2 hours of bonus footage.
Episode 1: Fishing crankbaits with Pete Ponds
Episode 2: Establishing a Pattern with Edwin Evers
Episode 3: Tackling Tidal Waters with Kurt Dove
Episode 4: Big Jigs for Bass with David Strahan
Episode 5: Drop Shotting on the Rock with Mike Webb
Episode 6: Grass Roots Bass with Roger Brown
Episode 7: Shallow Thinking for Lone Star Bass with James Niggemeyer
Episode 8: Power Fishing with a Spoon with Mike Webb
Episode 9: Deep Water Bass with Kedn Brodeur
Episode 10: Suspended Bass with Pete Ponds
Episode 11: Fishing Small Waters with Tom Barbaree
Episode 12: Pre-Spawn Bass with Bradley Stringer
I ordered on the website and paid by credit card. I recieved the DVDs about 4 weeks later. I’m pretty satisfied with the transaction and had no problem with shipping to Canada.
I watched the videos and found that they were chocked full of interesting content. Arron Martin, the host, is light hearted and fun to watch. I really liked the episode with Edwin Evers and thought that the information provided during their conversation was relevant. I noticed that every time Arron’s guest caught a fish he always asked right away “Do you need the net?” That was pretty amusing.
As a Canadian angler looking for relevant information I think that its important to note that Season 1 of Bass Edge is filmed in US waters. Most lakes were in Texas and other southern states. When I looked at the lakes they were mostly man made and gravel bottoms. During the episodes I found that the anglers were targeting specific areas of the lake and knew the lakes almost as if they had designed them themselves. As a Canadian angler I won’t have this advantage because in southern Ontario there are only naturally occuring lakes with bass in them. Perhaps an article about the differences between northern strain bass and southern strain bass is in order?
The tactics used in the DVDs are still relevant to anglers in southern Ontario, however you need to remember that your colour selections will be different from the DVD as you seek to match local prey. Tips on how to work the baits and where to cast are still really good and worth noting.
Visitors are welcome to submit questions, comments or opinions on this post. I want to know from those of you that have seen Bass Edge. Do you like the content? How can we utilize it?
