    Default Cover Your Bass introduces "The Bassroom" the complete

    MESQUITE, TX --- Cover Your Bass introduces "The Bassroom" the complete portable privacy system that allows you to spend more time on the water fishing by eliminating those inconvenient moments.

    Cover Your Bass is the culmination of research and development from innovators Matt and Kirk Smith, a father/son team of fishermen from Texas, who have created the ultimate portable bathroom for your fishing boat.

    Aptly named "The Bassroom" this ingenious product fills the need for a portable bathroom system in a market that has been overlooked and neglected for years. With privacy concerns and today's current "eco-friendly" movements, the Bassroom virtually eliminates the possibility of over-exposure from your boat while providing an environmentally safe alternative to lengthy trips back to the loading dock.

    "We've created this product to fill a void that currently exists in today's fishing arena" said Matt Smith, owner and creator of The Bassroom. "In today's world you never know who has a camera or video phone and would enjoy the 10 minutes of fame by posting a video of you "caught in the act" on YouTube or similar social network websites. The price, privacy, and function of The Bassroom provides security and comfort for much less than the cost of embarrassment or possible legal fees for over-exposure while on the lake." says Smith.

    The entire Bassroom system is stored in a handy transportation bag that can easily be tucked away in your boat until needed. With a total setup time of approximately a minute, you can quickly construct your Bassroom in times of an emergency and leave the unit assembled while you continue fishing or simply fold down and store.

    Although created specifically with fishing in mind, the Bassroom is gaining popularity with hikers and campers who find the ease of transport and privacy a welcome addition to their trips.

    "The feedback we have received from customers has shown a wide demographic range from young adventurers to Pro Anglers. The Bassroom is great for privacy, shade and rain shield for the entire family, including pets." says Smith.

    The Bassroom system itself consists of 190T polyester material with access doors on both the front and back equipped with over-sized zippers for easy handling. The polyester is waterproof and flame-proof to assure safety and comfort. The waste disposal bags contained in the full Bassroom system are convenient zip-up bags constructed of a sturdy 2 mil plastic material which effectively and safely handle the waste storage and transporting.

    Currently priced at $119.95 plus $10.00 shipping U.S. for the entire system, the Bassroom will provide years of service with proper handling and storage. Visit www.coveryourbass.com for more purchase details, videos, and product reviews from the experts.

    Cover Your Bass (www.coveryourbass.com) Home of the Bassroom is located in Mesquite, Texas providing portable privacy for your boat. 1-972-849-4868.

    PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT OUR PHOTO GALLERY-- The Bassroom can be set up on the back of a truck or on the ground, providing a private bathroom almost anywhere.

    Matt Smith 972-849-4868

    One of the purposes of the Bassroom System is to protect and improve the quality of our waters by providing recreational boaters and anglers with a convenient alternative to the overboard discharge of boat sewage.

    Clean water is important to all of us. Two ways for recreational boaters to improve water quality is to stop the overboard discharge of sewage and never use lake
    shoreline as a bathroom.

    Sewage discharges are unsightly and contain disease-causing microorganisms. Bacteria and viruses can contaminate areas used for swimming, skiing, and fishing. The decaying sewage can also degrade aquatic habitats by reducing oxygen levels.

    Be part of the solution:
    Do not use lake shoreline as a bathroom.
    Use the Bassroom System when out on the water.
    Dispose of waste from portable toilets and on-board holding tanks properly.
    Don't throw anything overboard.
    Bring cut fishing line ashore.
    Avoid discharging bilge waste into the water.
    Be careful in fueling -- try to prevent oil and fuel spills.

    “The PAA members who stepped up to the plate and entered this qualifier have shown us their spirit and support for their organization,” said PAA President Mark Davis. “We hope they are rewarded with some great fishing at Choke Canyon, which from what we’ve heard from the experts, rivals the quality of bass fishing at any lake in the state of Texas.”

    Arrow Trace Adkins To Headline Toyota Texas Bass Classic Ente

    NEWS RELEASE

    TRACE ADKINS TO HEADLINE TOYOTA TEXAS BASS CLASSIC ENTERTAINMENT

    HOUSTON, TEXAS – Country music superstar Trace Adkins will headline a world-class entertainment line-up at the 2008 Toyota Texas Bass Classic, a Professional Anglers Association sanctioned event. The three-day fishing Tournament at famed Lake Fork in East Texas will consist of two days of concerts with Adkins performing on Saturday, April 19. The Toyota Texas Bass Classic is in its second year and will be held April 18 – 20.
    “This is a tremendous announcement for our event,” said Tournament Director Lenny Francoeur. “Our Tournament has quickly become recognized not only as a premier bass fishing event, but also a world-class entertainment venue. We feel very privileged to give area residents the chance to see great entertainment in their own backyard.”
    Tickets are now on sale as a three-day pass valid Friday through Sunday can be purchased for $20 in advance of the Tournament, or $25 at the gate. Information regarding additional entertainment acts for Saturday, April 19 and Sunday, April 20 are forthcoming.
    Adkins’ gregarious personality has made him a larger-than-life character in the country music world. His instantly recognizable baritone has energized concert venues and made its way to the top of billboard charts for a decade. Adkins’ appeal has gone from that of the good old country boy to mainstream megastar during his rise. He has successfully mixed good-time anthems with emotional glimpses into his life across his albums. Adkins has also incorporated different music styles into his sound, including the hip-hop influenced “Honky-Tonk Badonkadonk” that reached number two on the US Country billboard chart. He recently released American Man, Greatest Hits Volume II, a collection of songs influential in his rise to the top.
    Adkins was also named as a competitor on The Celebrity Apprentice, a spin-off of Donald Trump’s The Apprentice, which airs on NBC. In this version, the competitors compete for a $250,000 donation to the charity of their choice. Adkins is competing for the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN),
    because of his close personal connection to these issues; his six year-old daughter suffers from severe food allergies.
    The Toyota Texas Bass Classic is sanctioned by the Professional Anglers Association with technical assistance and support from Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Inland Fisheries Division. The Toyota Texas Bass Classic benefits the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and its outdoor recreation programs. Title sponsor for the event is Toyota.

    Default Toyota Texas Bass Classic Returns in 2008

    Toyota Texas Bass Classic Returns in 2008

    Houston, TX - Officials for the Toyota Texas Bass Classic (TTBC) have announced that the unique team angling event will return for its second year. The Tournament will be held on Lake Fork in East Texas, April 18-20, 2008, and will adhere to the strict slot limits of the lake. The event will benefit the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) and its outdoor recreation programs.

    "It is a great honor to announce the Toyota Texas Bass Classic will be returning to Lake Fork in 2008," said TTBC Co-Founders Dan Friedkin and Donato Ramos. "Not only will this allow us to continue to showcase the outstanding bass fishing in Texas, but it also sets the standard for conservation practices in angling and it benefits TPWD programs."

    The Toyota Texas Bass Classic is a one of a kind event in the sport of angling. The Tournament features 100 professional anglers grouped in teams of four. 2007 was the first year of the event and the team of Terry Scroggins (captain), Chris Daves, Frank Ippoliti and James Niggemeyer took home the $250,000 team purse. They reeled in 54 fish totaling 244 pounds 12 ounces.

    "Through the support and hard work of multiple organizations, this Tournament has reinvented the bass fishing Tournament format and reinvigorated the sport for many," said Professional Anglers Association
    (PAA) President Mark Davis.

    The 100 contestants, all of whom are qualified members of the PAA, will be arranged in four-man teams for the Tournament's first two days on Friday and Saturday, with five of those teams qualifying for the finals on the Tournament's third day. The four-man teams will consist of two pairs of anglers, one pair fishing in one boat for four hours each morning and the other pair in the afternoon.

    "Toyota is thrilled to be on board again with this tremendous event and to be able to support TPWD and its efforts," announced Toby Hynes, President, Gulf States Toyota. "It is great to put the spotlight on Lake Fork but even better to see the positive impact that this event has on the programs sponsored by TPWD."

    Through the TTBC, the TPWD will receive a $250,000 donation that will be used to benefit their first-class youth fishing and outreach programs. "The focus of these programs is to expose kids and non-traditional users to the great fishing and the conservation of the TPWD's Freshwater Resources upon which good fishing depends," said JC Fassino, President, Texas Bass Classic Foundation.

    In the Toyota Texas Bass Classic, all fish caught above 14 inches will be weighed and the top five caught each day credited to each angler. Fish will be weighed in the boat by a certified and independent observer, and then returned to the lake immediately. This avoids having fish held in live wells for long periods of time and will set precedence on how fish are to be handled in future professional bass tournaments. Contestants will be allowed to keep one fish larger than 24 inches, which will be weighed at the lake-side weigh-in scales, then turned over to TPWD for proper handling and release back to the lake.

    The Tournament's format is designed to appeal to spectators, and includes a kids' area with outdoor activities, live music and a Jumbotron showing continuous action to the audience. Morning and afternoon weigh-ins will assure high levels of activity during the day. While half of the anglers are on the water fishing, the other flight of anglers will be on shore giving clinics, signing autographs and interacting with the public. A fishing industry expo will feature instructional seminars and the latest in fishing equipment, gear and accessories.

    In 2007, over 27,000 people attended the events at Lake Fork over the course of the Pro-Am and TTBC tournaments. An hour-long national network broadcast is scheduled for the event.

    The 2007 Lucchese Toyota Tundra Big Bass Award went to angler John Sappington for his largest Tournament catch, weighing in at 11 pounds 2 ounces. The big catch earned him a custom pair of Lucchese Boots, Stetson hat and a Lucchese edition Toyota Tundra truck.

    The Toyota Texas Bass Classic is sanctioned by the Professional Anglers Association with technical assistance and support from Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's Inland Fisheries Division. Title sponsor for the
    event is Toyota.

    Default California Hunters Face Forced Spay and Neuter Law

    California Hunters Face Forced Spay and Neuter Law Spay and Neuter Bill Passes Committee

    April 27, 2007 (California)

    California sportsmen face advancing legislation that will put unnecessary hardships on sporting dog owners and outlaw the breeding of accomplished hunting dogs.

    Assembly Bill 1634, which requires dogs over four months of age to be spayed or neutered, passed the Assembly Business and Professions Committee on April 24 by a vote of 7 to 3. The bill, sponsored by Lloyd Levine, D-Van Nuys, requires dog owners to have their dogs spayed or neutered at their own expense. Registered, purebred dogs are exempt from the requirement. The bill has been re-referred to the Committee on Appropriations.

    “California sportsmen must turn the heat up on lawmakers,” said USSA Senior Vice President Rick Story. “Assembly Bill 1634 will cause unnecessary financial hardships on middle and low income sportsmen who will be forced to spay or neuter their animals, and will prevent people from breeding extremely accomplished sporting dogs simply because they are not purebred.”

    Assembly Bill 1634 will also cause an unintended health concern for dogs and the public. There is a risk that individuals who do not comply with the new law will stop taking their dogs for veterinary care. Although the bill does not mandate that veterinarians report violators, some will fear citations and forego vet visits. As a result, the dogs will not receive regular inoculations that protect the animals and the public from disease.

    The anti’s have marked California’s hound hunting traditions for elimination, but a vigilant sportsmen’s community continues to strike back.

    “In recent years, California sportsmen have united to protect their hobbies and hunting interests, and it is time again to take action,” said Story.

    Take Action! California sportsmen should contact Assembly members and let them know that the hunting dog community opposes AB 1634, an excessive bill that will devastate the future of their sport. Explain that the bill criminalizes dog owners who legitimately breed hunting dogs. Let them know you oppose the establishment of unattainable regulations to receive an exemption. To contact your assembly member, call (916) 445-2323 or use the Legislative Action Center at www.ussportsmen.org.

    If you enjoy any facet of the Texas Outdoors, please visit www.TexasFund9.org
    to learn about six critical issues facing all of us.

    TexasFund9.org was created by 35&#43; State and National Organizations coming together under the name, &#34;Texas Outdoor Partners.&#34; The members include the Texas Wildlife Association, Nature Conservancy, Coastal Conservation Association, Ducks Unlimited, and many others who have united to express one message representing millions of Texas Outdoor Enthusiasts.

    Default Interesting, fascinating game,

    Interesting, fascinating game, realistic – simulation of
    fishing.
    There is big variety of fish, each which has its own behaviour.
    http://www.gamestugroup.com/masterpriece.php
    In this game you have an opportunity to perfect your
    equipment - fishing-rod, hook, bob, bait, spoon bait,
    and fishing-line. You can play in full-screen mode, reduced
    window mode, and also you can minimize the game.
    In minimized mode the image of the bob will appear on your
    monitor, and will tell you when you have a bite.
    Such a possibility gives you time to do other things if
    fish don&#39;t nibble or if you are trying to catch very big fish,
    which always takes much time and patience.
    55 different types of fish.
    Competition spirit in the game during all the time.
    To have play in new location you need to get 150 points.

    The beautiful water will not leave you unaffected.
    There are 28 different locations each with beautiful
    landscape s and splendid music will help you to relax.
