Midwinter usually is a time when many outdoorsmen head for fishing, hunting and boating shows in the area. This January, however, a show of a different kind will be in Baltimore: "Ray Scott -- Live on Tour!", a one-man show about competence and comedy on the world's largest professional bass fishing circuit."B.A.S.S. is one of those wonderful all-American stories," said Scott, who founded the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society three decades ago. "I started with nothing but a dream and achieved success in the best sense of the word -- creating something that will last long after I'm gone."

Striped bass anglers in the Chesapeake Bay and along the Atlantic Ocean would be required next year to register with the federal government under a proposal announced yesterday. When Congress renewed the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act in 2006, it insisted that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration replace its discredited method for counting fish populations. Biologists determined that the best way to get an accurate census was to set up a registry system that lets anglers report their catches by phone or online.

MARBURY -- The last time the Bass Anglers Sportsma Society held a pro-am tournament on the Potomac River, Hurricane Hugo came through and blew out a day of fishing.Yesterday, a gusty northwest wind churned up the Potomac and made for a rough day of fishing for many of the 200 entrants on the first day of the BASSMASTER BP Top 100.Before, during and after weigh-ins at Smallwood State Park yesterday afternoon, there was much talk about rough rides and stretches of river that had muddied up overnight and had become difficult to fish.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - In the battle of rival fishing tours, BASS has raised the stakes again. Yesterday, the organization announced that Busch beer would be picking up the tab for the Angler of the Year program and other portions of the tournament trail. The contract, which covers the 2002 Classic and the next two years with an option for two more, will put more money into the pockets of successful anglers and adds bass fishing to the Anheuser-Busch sports portfolio. The brewery giant is a sponsor of a majority of pro baseball, basketball and hockey teams, the PGA Tour and NASCAR.

The qualifying rounds continue today in Laurel."They looked pretty good today, fought pretty good," said Mace, of Wilmington, Del. "A bad day of fishing is still better than a good day at work."

Two new studies by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have categorized the demographics and participation levels of bass and trout fishermen, compared them with other freshwater fishing statistics and found that black bass appeal to the largest number of anglers in the country.The studies were designed to complement its National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife-Asssociated Recreation, which is issued every five years. The last national survey was released in 1991.The two new reports -- Black Bass Fishing in the U.S. and Trout Fishing in the U.S. -- ascertained the number of participating anglers, how many days each angler fished per year, age (16 and older)

The Potomac River from the Route 301 bridge north to Washington has been the best largemouth bass fishery in the region for a number of years, and a recent six-month study by the Department of Natural Resources shows that it is continuing to improve.The creel survey, conducted by DNR's Freshwater Fisheries Division, showed that 70 percent of all anglers fishing above the Route 301 bridge target bass and had an average catch rate of .465 fish per hour. Of the fishermen surveyed, 81 percent said they release their catch.

Bass'n is good for those who know the tidal waters of the upper Chesapeake Bay complex, though not for those unfamiliar with the creeks, rivers and flats near Baltimore. So, the 21st BASS Masters Classic slated for Aug. 22-24 promises to be a most interesting affair.Though some of the 40 contenders for the $50,000 first-place prize in the World Series of Bass Fishing practice-fished here earlier this summer, few really know the upper bay region. Those who tried to get a handle on it during brief practice forays earlier this year had varying success.

While walking around the Chesapeake Sportfishing Show at Annapolis Armory today, or maybe while strolling down Fisherman's Row at the 42nd edition of the Chesapeake Bay Boat Show Jan. 13-21 at the Baltimore Convention Center, the temptation to buy a new fishing outfit is going to hit you like a hammer.By the time you wrap up the first tour of the BASS EXPO set for Jan. 18-21 at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, temptation will have passed into the "got to have it" phase.Years ago, most serious bass and striper anglers invariably bought level-wind baitcasting reels.

Fishing report The locations Piney Run: Panfishing with nightcrawlers is top-notch, say Jim Gronaw and Loren Lustig at the park office. "Tanker" bluegills and huge yellow perch are 18-25 feet deep. Bass are staying along the edges of the grass. Top-water lures in the morning and evening and rubber worms in midday work. Prettyboy Reservoir: The toughest part of fishing right now is launching a boat, says guide Duke Nohe. Best bet? The old gravel road. Fish are 27-32 feet deep, and anglers are having good luck casting surface plugs in the mornings and evenings.

EAGLE, Pa. -- Fishermen who chase the largemouth bass are different, and they have the T-shirts to prove it. Who else would wear something emblazoned with a greenish fish and the slogan, "Kiss my bass"? And who else would get up at 2 a.m., drive to a lake and sit there in a boat, flicking a fake worm into the water? And who, after seven hours of effort, would then throw back every fish they caught? Plenty, apparently, and 30 of them belong to the Marsh Creek Bass Club in this southeastern Pennsylvania community.

Largemouth bass fishing continues to be big business in the recreational fishing industry.I remember when largemouth bass fishing came of age -- or rage -- in the early 1970s. You couldn't catch a bass on an ordinary rod; it had to be a bass rod or worming stick that felt more like a pool cue than a fishing rod.And spinning reels were out -- only conventional, bait casting reels could catch them big hawgs (bass).Everyone had to be a member of the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society (BASS), and no BASS member would be caught dead fishing in anything other than a bass boat.
