I’ve been in Florida now for some time fishing Okeechobee and a couple of other places trying to get ready for the upcoming Wild Card. It’s been an experience.
I’m still in Florida enjoying the great weather and the great fishing.
I think it’s important that we acknowledge the positive when we talk about the state of the sport of bass fishing.
It seems like the older I get, the earlier I point my truck, trailer and boat south, and the longer I stay.
No, I’m not talking about my wonderful wife, Tracey. She’s not a ball and chain. I’m talking about bass fishing with a Carolina rig.
We’re all subject to wishing that we could do something we can’t. In my case that would be spending more time fishing with other anglers, professional and recreational alike.
I’ve started to look over the 2014 schedule. The process of putting things together is more complicated than some people think.
It’s fall. That means the best fishing of the year is going to happen in the next few weeks.
Lake Erie can be an extraordinary fishery. I had a huge sack on the first day up there, then the winds came, Friday was cancelled and my bite disappeared.
Because of Friday’s cancellation, a full field of anglers compete on the final day for the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Northern Open #3 trophy.
