I've been fishing professionally for a long time, and I'm a couple of decades past my rookie season, but that doesn't mean I don't have an eye on the new guys in the Elite Series.
I want to thank everyone who posted a chigger remedy in response to my last column. The itching and irritation is much better now.
I've finally found the middle ground between my fishing and my work for sponsors, and it's right in my backyard.
I hope everyone reading this will find a way to reach out to those who have suffered so much recently.
I believe momentum can be really strong in bass fishing, and I'm excited to have some as we enter the final three events.
One of the questions I get a lot from fans and casual anglers is how I go about practicing for a tournament and what my goals are in preparing for an event.
Like I said last week, I was down at Falcon Lake this past weekend, and it was a little disappointing. Now, catching a 9-pounder is never disappointing, but Falcon just isn’t the same lake that it usually is since it’s been nearly 40 feet low.
I usually don’t go to Falcon Lake on the weekends because of the crowd, but I recently had some time and headed down there.
This long break in the Elite Series season is kind of hard to deal with. We’ve been in full fishing mode for the last few months, and it has been easy to stay pumped the whole time. But the six-week break is making it hard for me to maintain my energy.
We made the four-hour drive from my home to Toledo Bend on Saturday. It was a pleasant drive without any problems. I like to get to the tournaments a day early whenever I can.
