When I was a kid

Dec 28, 2011

Santa’s big fish Christmas

Dec 21, 2011

I’m back in Columbus. My plant manager is out so I’ve got to work at my “real” job. I sure wanted to stay in Florida, though. The fish are biting like crazy. Okeechobee just might be the hottest lake in our country right now.

Got Tournaments?

Nov 23, 2011

I was messing around the other day — fishing, of course — when I ran into a fellow who reminded me about the Sunday tournaments on a local lake near my house, Deer Creek Reservoir. I’d fished them a time or two in the past and had a good time so I thought why not.

Grand Lake makes for a grand Classic

Nov 16, 2011

I was really excited to hear that Grand Lake o’ the Cherokees will be the site of our 2013 Bassmaster Classic.

Play to your strength

Nov 9, 2011

You always hear that you should play to your strength. It’s one of those things that we all acknowledge but often don’t put into practice.

Life’s short

Nov 2, 2011

I’m in Oklahoma prefishing on Grand Lake o’ the Cherokees for this year’s Fish and Chips combination tournament.
