Welcome to 32fishing. What’s significant about the number 32? 32 is the percentage of fishing time actually fishing and catching fish. The other 68% of the time fishing is spent enjoying the fact that you are fishing and not working. Fishing is about getting away, having fun, being able to relax and occasionally catching a fish or two. I hope you enjoy 32fishing and be sure to come back often for news and updates. Thanks and happy fishing.

Top 5 Must-Have Topwater Lures for Bass Fishing

I love fishing topwater. Nothing beats watching a little lure sitting nicely on top of the water suddenly be viciously gulped up by a nice largemouth or smallmouth. In the morning time, in the evening, when nothing seems to be biting, I usually tie a topwater on in hopes for that memorable crashing of hungry bass on the end of…

The Land of Lost Lures

I imagine it is a cold and dark world, the Land of Lost Lures. It’s not a place most fishermen like to think about. I’m sure there are some dark forces or evil goblins that live down there hiding under the knotted limbs that look like an old witches hand. I’ve stopped counting how many lures I’ve lost to that…

Favorite Lures

I think every fisherman has his favorite lures. It may have been lures that his father or grandfather introduced him too or it may just be ones he discovered later on. I would have to say that my favorite lure is the Rooster Tail. I didn’t start using Rooster Tails for warm water fishing until I went fishing for trout…

Best Spinning Reel for Under $100

When it comes to fishing for bass and pan fish, I prefer a good spinning reel with about 6lb line on it and a light action rod. Over the years I’ve had the experience of fishing with many different reels.  While I’ve spent over $100 on a reel, I usually look for ones under $100. I find one can get…

While the fishing can be slower in the spring, you can increase your chances of getting some bites by following a few simple rules.

Fall Fishing Tips

You can’t outrun the cold air now. It’s here and it’s here for a while, unless you live in Florida or other warm climate areas of our globe. But if you live in the Midwest, on the East or out West in America; the cold is here. But there’s still time for fishing until the waters freeze over and then…
