Mays of the past

Mays of the past

On April 1, we announced that at the first of each month we would assemble a short bibliography (with Internet links) to our monthly guides to Midwest finesse fishing.

We began this behest of some members of the Finesse News Network who wanted to know if there have been any noticeable and noteworthy changes in the fishing that we write about in our monthly guides to Midwest finesse fishing.

One angler suggested that we write a history of each month, including a sabermetrics style of analysis similar to the one that baseball analysts employ. Bill James of Lawrence, Kansas, is one of the pioneers of sabermetrics, and he describes it as "the search for objective knowledge about baseball." That is an enlightening suggestion, but we are sorry to say that piscatorial analysts do not possess all of the data and statistical tools that James and his colleagues have access to in the baseball world.

Therefore, we opted to assemble a monthly bibliography that would allow anglers to locate and read what we have written since January of 2011 about each month of the year. And across the past three years, we have published  thousands words each month that describe about how Midwest finesse anglers have caught largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, spotted bass, and a few incidental species, and in fact, a few of these monthly guides have contained more than 25,000 words.


As anglers examine these links to Mays of the past, they should be mindful that locations and presentations can be similar from year to year, but they can also be slightly dissimilar and even radically different.

(4) http://www.in-fisherman.com/midwest-finesse/a-month-by-month-guide-to-midwest-finesse-for-bass/. In some ways, this is a historical analysis of Midwest finesse fishing that we wrote back in 2011. It focuses on each month of the year and it is entitled "A Month-by-Month Guide to Midwest Finesse Fishing."
