As I mentioned in my last posting, Little Alton and I spent some time at Lake Amistad a couple weeks ago to prefish for his Bass Champs tournament there.
I've been down here in Florida for a couple of days prefishing on the Harris Chain with my buddy Tom Frederick. We're really having a wonderful time catching up and catching a few fish.
Well, I hope everyone had a great Christmas and a happy New Year's celebration, and I wish you all the best for this year. I had a wonderful time with family and friends, and now I'm down at Lake Amistad for a three-fold trip.
I'll be spending this Christmas in Dallas with my parents and sisters and their families which is a tradition. Last year we had a white Christmas here in central Texas, but it's looking like it may be the opposite this year.
This past week was a week I had been looking forward to for a long time. I was looking forward to treating you all to lots of giant, hawg fish. But, with the security situation down there as bad as it was, we decided to move it somewhere safer.
All in all, it will be an exciting week, and I'm really looking forward to it. On another note, Kristen, my middle child and oldest daughter, turns 16 in a few weeks.
Well, we're back from Colorado and I must say, while fishing in those cold streams was an absolute ball, I haven't decided to give up bass fishing. Once you're a bass fisherman, nothing else ever seems to stack up.
Last Thursday night was one of the most fun nights I've had in a while. We celebrated my father's 80th birthday.
This past weekend was my LifeLine Fish with the Pros Texas event, and it was without a doubt the most fun LifeLine event we've ever had — and they've all been great. This year, we moved it down to Lake Amistad, so it had a tournament feel to it.
Tomorrow I leave for my LifeLine Youth and Family Services Fish with the Pros event on Lake Amistad. My goal is to leave early enough in the morning so I can get at least a half-day of prefishing in before the guests arrive.
