Bass anglers fishing new waters or looking for an edge on familiar ones can benefit from 30 years of tournament-winning patterns, compiled by one of the sport’s most respected pros: former fisheries biologist and Bassmaster Classic winner, Ken Cook.
Available through his website, KenCookOutdoors.com, Pattern Forecast is a detailed database that arms anglers with the knowledge they need to make their next fishing trip a success. Compiled over the last three decades, Pattern Forecasts came from the results of BASS and other multi-day tournaments on many of America’s most popular fishing destinations. Cook compiled the successful patterns of the winning anglers in an effort to prepare for future tournaments – and now he is sharing this information with anglers everywhere.
Whether anglers are preparing for a tournament, fishing vacation or family outing, Cook’s database can pinpoint the pattern best suited for the chosen body of water during any time of year, helping anglers to get the most out of their valuable fishing time. Pattern Forecast buyers will receive a detailed report giving anglers locations on the lake that are most successful as well as habitat and lure patterns. Also, Cook will analyze the data and make customized suggestions about the most successful fishing patterns including latitude and other parameters for the specified lake.
The cost of a single Pattern Forecast is $24.95 and includes an e-mail file of the data as well as a custom forecast. Three monthly forecasts for the same lake are available for $69.95; 12 monthly forecasts for the same lake are $249.95. Orders can be paid for by check, money orders or PayPal and can be made on the Internet at KenCookOutdoors.com.
Cook is the 1991 Bassmaster Classic winner and a 14-time Classic qualifier. A former fisheries biologist, Cook is among the BASS Top 30 all-time money winners. Currently fishing the Bassmaster Elite Series, Cook spends his time away from the tournament trail on his ranch near Meers, Okla.
