As tough as fishing was, there were a lot of good things going on in Orange, Texas, during the Elite week.
One of my favorite things about fishing with B.A.S.S. is the unique venues they take us to, and this place was definitely unique.
Aaron Martens' father died the week of the Bassmaster Classic, but Martens feels close to his dad everytime he's out in nature.
When you make the wrong decisions during a tournament, things can go downhill in a hurry.
If you have a small collection of these four jigs in your tackle box you should be in pretty good shape no matter where or when you fish.
Usually, after a bad tournament, I'll think about it on the drive home — or to the next event — get it all sorted out in my head, and move on to the next one.
The good thing is that I didn’t put myself in a deep hole starting off this year like I did the last time we competed on the Sabine.
The Sabine bite was good enough that there would be lots of limits brought to the scales every afternoon. My goal was to be in that group.
I knew this story was coming, the story of the return of Mark Menendez to the Elites, his taking to the water in competition following the passing of his beloved wife.
The leaderboard shows just how good these Elite guys are. The fish aren’t huge but limits are still being caught.
