Decembers of the Past

Decembers of the Past

Since 2011, we have published 98,467words and hundreds of logs about how, when, and where Midwest finesse anglers catch black bass in December at various kinds of waterways in Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas, and West Virginia by employing Midwest finesse tactics.

The logs describe the piscatorial undertakings and perceptions of Abe Abernathy of Greensboro, North Carolina; Rick Allen of Dallas; Bill Beach of Topeka, Kansas; Burton Bosley of Sutton, West Virginia; Norman Brown of Lewisville, Texas; Lou Clewell of Roselyn, Pennsylvania; Abe Cillers of Leavenworth, Kansas; Steve Creasey of Elkins, West Virginia; Charlie Croom of Fayetteville, Arkansas; Brent Frazee of Parkville, Missouri; Merit Goodman of Eudora, Kansas; Bob Gum of Kansas City, Kansas; Rick Hebenstreit of Shawnee, Kansas; Ned Kehde of Lawrence, Kansas; Ralph Manns of Rockwall, Texas; Greg Monahan of Lee's Summit, Missouri; Kelly Morris of Gardner, Kansas; Travis Myers of Paw Paw, West Virginia; Susan North of Lincoln, Nebraska; Nathan Parker of Tulsa, Oklahoma; Mike Poe of Siler City, North Carolina; Steve Reideler of Denton, Texas; Walt Tegtmeier of Leawood, Kansas; John Thomas of Denton, Texas; Andrew Trembath of Kansas City, Kansas; and Brian Waldman of Indianapolis, Indiana.

December can be a frustrating time, and many of these logs explain how Midwest finesse anglers cope with Old Man Winter, who often wreaks havoc with these anglers' best-laid piscatorial plans and desires.

These many words will also reveal how things have changed or not changed.
