Howdy and Welcome to the "Cove".
What's this all about?. It started out a a little place for me to show off and tell people about a couple of passions of mine. A lot has gone on from those first days of the "Cove" Today you'll find that "Project Rapala" & The "Photo-Cove" are the main focus.

All the pages I have here can be found down on this page or here..Table of ContentsThe Table of contents page will show all new page additions and descriptions of each page.

Want to keep current, What's Bass up to and where is he? It all can be found on this new page.Where's Bass? click here.

A little info about myself. I've been a Michigander all my life. I can't really explain the enjoyment I have about this State and the Seasons we have here.
I have been a Professional Cook for over 20 years now (With A great Era Of being a Kichen Manager) At the BEST place I ever had the chance to work at. I also enjoy several outdoor activities, fishing, hunting, hiking, photo-takin. I also have a passion for Rapala Lure's (For those that didn't know!) It's a passion if you wander through the pages here you'll begin to understand.
Well, I hope you'll be able to find something here that you find enjoyable to look at or some info on my hobby, collection, what I like to call "Project Rapala"
Steve "Bass, Rapala-Guru"

A NEW name with the same information. I've renamed this section and added it's own 'table of contents page. The "Project Rapala" pages (some 22 pages now) contain a lot of information and scans(images) of some of the Rapala-Normark items in my collection. Catalogs, Lure's, Box style's, color codes, Knives and a lot of other items.
Use the "Project Rapala contents pg. to help in finding each page.
