Dinger Days: Fishing in Honor of YOU!

dinger days with the minimalist fisherman

Good morning brothers!

Today’s post is all about my appreciation of you!

Appreciation, all around!

The biggest THANK YOU to everyone that makes a small monthly contribution to help keep this site active, free for everyone, and growing! I mean it. You’ve probably noticed this big button at the bottom of every post, along with a little blurb that asks you to pitch in for a sweet Pack o’ Dingers

This allows readers to make a small monthly donation – which is awesome – but I don’t want to just put that money in the bank. I want to use it in a way that’s fun. So this spring, we’ll be starting Dinger Days on the Stars & Bars Fishing Vlog.

A Dinger Day is a day full of dingers – wait no – scratch that – a Dinger Day is a day in-the-field dedicated to all of you that support this project!

I’ll take a monthly contribution, pick out a pack of YUM Dingers, and we’ll head out to see just how many fish we can catch on that single pack. As soon as the water warms a bit, we’re going to start with a pack of 4-inchers in a color I’ve never used before: Elder’s Magic.

Cheap. Effective. The Yum Dinger in Elder’s Magic.

(Stickbaits are an incredibly versatile bait for largemouth and smallmouth bass. I have never been a “Senko guy“, but for some reason the YUM Dinger (in multiple sizes) has become a staple for me – along with Strike King Ochos, Zoom Zlinkys and Z-Man Bang StickZ.)

They all have a time and a place, but this last season the smaller YUM Dingers were the most consistent producers in my crystal-clear quarry lakes.

So, we’re gonna go fish ’em together.

You and me, kid.

As a team.

We’re gonna figure out the best ways to present this bait… and with something like… a billion rigging options… it’s going to take us a while. Simplicity is key. You know that I harp on the fact you don’t need a boat full of baits to have an absolute blast on your favorite body of water.

Well… let me show you what I mean.

Dinger Days. Coming Soon.

Hilarious title, but I mean this – cheers to you!
