The AOY race is heating up, but it was great just to spend a relaxing day on the water with family and friends.
I'm still after my personal best at Falcon, but I haven't taken my eye off the prize. A bird's eye view of the Arkansas River should help.
I may have stumbled with my 88th-place finish at Lake Murray, but I didn't fall. I'm tied for second and plan to give it my very best in the last two events.
If you've been reading my column for a while, you know how much want the AOY trophy. Well, so far, so good. I'm still leading with three to go.
We’re at the midway point of the Elite season, and I’m currently leading the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year race. That essentially puts a target on my back.
Well, I went to make a scouting trip to the Arkansas River yesterday morning. My plan was to fish yesterday afternoon, all day today and tomorrow, and then work my way to West Point Lake in Georgia.
Well, those of you who follow along weekly may recall last week how I waded into Toledo Bend and destroyed my iPhone in the process. I wish all of my phone troubles went away at that point, but it got worse.
I'm very grateful to have caught the fish that I caught last week and to have gotten the 5th place finish that I had at Pickwick and to have retained the lead in the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year race.
I'm here on the Harris Chain in Florida today for the first day of practice of the Elite Series season. I've been idling and trolling around quite a bit trying to put the finishing touches on my game plan.
At the end of last week, I did a little prefishing on West Point Lake in Georgia. Before then, I had never laid eyes on that lake. So, I did a lot of riding around and a lot of looking as well as a little fishing.
