My first catch in practice was in the exact same spot where I caught my first Lake Erie smallmouth as a kid.
This week we’ll talk about practice time and some of the factors we should consider when we’re planning for a tournament.
There was a time when I had the attitude that fishing was about catching fish, and that black bass were the only real adversary worth pursuing.
I love our Marshal Program. Fishing at the Elite level without having to share your fish is a dream come true for most of us.
I’m over on Lake Ontario, and I’m catching smallies to the point where I feel fish drunk. It’s unbelievable.
Last weekend was a big deal for me. I made my inaugural Lake Erie trip of the year and caught my first 5-pound smallie. I have to say that of all the places I’ve fished Lake Erie is probably my favorite.
Things went my way on the James River last week. I had a respectable finish and did something I haven’t done for awhile.
While the competitors fishing Day Two of the Bass Pro Shops Northern Open may have the opportunity to catch quality fish today, it’s all but a steel trap lock that no 10-pounders will be weighed in.
The bass of the James aren’t tall and they don’t need a lot of headroom either, so super-shallow water is key.
For some competitors the Opens are a steppingstone to the Elite Series, but anyone who thinks this week’s event on the James River is a Triple-A level affair is sorely mistaken.
