We wanted to give a little recap of the year on Wired2fish and we thought it would be nice to let the readership show what stories they tuned in for the most this year. Everything from 15-pound bass to crashing bridge collapses and banning techniques and rigs on major tournament fishing circuits in between.
So without further ado, here are the top viewed news stories related to fishing on Wired2fish.com in 2012:
See the monster bass Lance Walker caught on Pickwick Lake last winter that would have been the Tennessee state record but was let go for the right reasons.
The latest tackle craze and somewhat controversial fishing method gets banned by one of the top competitive bass fishing circuits but not the other.
A lesson in caution for anglers who have boats and aren’t sure what Ethanol can do to them if used with engines not intended for use with such alternative fuels.
A barge crashed into the main bridge crossing the Tennessee River impoundment Kentucky Lake in the middle of the night and left an more than 100 mile round trip for folks that had to go to and from areas surrounding the lake for several months. We were on site shooting pictures of the aftermath during this time.
A regular old fisherman caught what seemed to be long-standing, record breaking bass only to have it stripped again after it was determined he hadn’t done some necessary things to have the record. Still an amazing fish but unfortunately the circumstances tainted the potential state-record catch.
