If one thing’s for sure, our readers love their bass gear. In our annual Readers’ Choice Awards, we asked your opinions on the best bass gear from crankbaits to reels and more. Thousands of you replied, and one randomly-chosen entrant won a $500 gift card to a popular sporting goods store.
It’s obvious to us, the editors at Game and Fish/Sportsman magazines, that our readers are passionate, hardcore bass anglers.
