Heres an idea.
I really have to believe that there has to be a considerable amount of bass fishermen who shore fish.
Maybe the young new anglers.
Maybe the guy or girl that has five kids and they all bass fish, but they ALL EAT TOO!
Maybe an angler due to economics can't afford to take the boat out everytime.
Maybe due to age or disabilities boating alone maybe a poor choice.
Maybe the angler who has to rely on knowledge and 'shared' experiences to improve thier success not the electronics they can afford.
Maybe the angler who needs different ideas to improve thier success because they can't just drop the motor and move. Shore access has it's limitations. Hell all the folks with BOATS own it.

I would guess on any given day there are more bass anglers on the bank fishing than in a boat fishing.
So what the pros fish mostly in boats. My hunch is they also do/will/did/can fish from shore too.

So have a dedicated shore fishing section in EVERY issue. Not the two page once a year stuff most do.
Just like I adapt boat fishing techniques to shore fishing the same can be said here too.
Heck I think I was told boaters spend like 80% of thier time fishing the shore. So the two are fishing the SAME water just opposite view points.

So run this by the 'interested'.
Tell the sponsers that shore busters 'loose more lures' than boaters so the battle for space in this section should out produce all others sections.

Yeah, I like it. Title it: A Day on the Lake with BBT.

That was for yuks, man. I really don't think the BBT are ALL THAT BAD!

Really, I don't.
Really.
Well, as you aptly said (MANY TIMES) - MAYBE

Bye for now, I have to go cry over my boat hull, as I will be BKT (Boatless Kayak Trash) for the next couple of weeks.

I have to say, Joe has a pretty good suggestion here. I can think of a dozen ideas for shore angler stories right off the bat.
I myself would like to see more articles about fishing naturally made lakes. You pick up any bass fishing magazine and 99% of the articles relate to man made reservoirs. The lakes I fish have been around a few thousand years I'm suspecting. They don't contain all the fancy structure points that reservoirs do. Nor do they deal with the drawdown, or current flow from the dam releasing.
