Mike Long, world record hunter

Recommended Posts

If anyone has been keeping up, there's news about him that turns the big bass world on its head. I can't get the 10 year researched article to load on sdfish.com, but there is a video on Youtube where you can see him snagging fish during the spawn in San Diego at Poway. My son was looking at everything he does a few weeks back and now, he is pretty dejected about it. 

This makes me wonder who you all think is the best big bass angler in the nation or the world. 

Also, where is the next world record largemouth, smallie and spot destined to come from?

That swimbait slinging Oliver dude from BigBassDreams is the Toad Bass catchinest guy I've ever seen.   

If he doesn't end up busting some records all over the country I'll be surprised.

Oliver is a kick butt dude too. I've spoken with him several times and he just gets it. He catches some pigs.

That article is eye-opening. Pretty sad.

Was watching a fishing show recently where a guy was using a big jerkbait literally jerking it as hard as he could by the looks of it. Repeated casts to same target spot.  Snagged an 8lber in the back and it was weighed and the weight added to his total.   Have never seen anyone work a jerkbait that hard ever.  That's bs jmo wonder if the new electronics where you can see the fish right in front of you had any play in this. It just looked fishy, npi.

Wow, what an article. I have only heard of the guy and never followed him so I didn't have a clue until I read this! All because he had a reputation for big bass he was getting a free pass and everyone believed him. PT Barnum was right.

@ollie, read the book Sowbelly. It is what I initially formed my opinion, positive at that, on Long from. This article and video disgust me.
