I should have been more careful about what I said last week. After bragging about our great weather, things went downhill fast.
This year we had a wonderful Christmas. I can’t remember ever having a better one except maybe when I was a kid. I got to spend time with the family, relax and open several really neat presents. One of the best ones was from Abu Garcia.
I’m back in Columbus. My plant manager is out so I’ve got to work at my “real” job. I sure wanted to stay in Florida, though. The fish are biting like crazy. Okeechobee just might be the hottest lake in our country right now.
OK guys, I’ve just finished my first sailfish tournament. The only thing it had in common with a bass tournament is that they’re both held on water. After that, it’s two different worlds.
I’m in Florida fishing Lake Okeechobee and I have to say I’m having the time of my life.
Last week I mentioned the Thanksgiving tournament on Lake Cumberland. I didn’t do all that well but did I ever have a good time.
I was messing around the other day — fishing, of course — when I ran into a fellow who reminded me about the Sunday tournaments on a local lake near my house, Deer Creek Reservoir. I’d fished them a time or two in the past and had a good time so I thought why not.
I was really excited to hear that Grand Lake o’ the Cherokees will be the site of our 2013 Bassmaster Classic.
You always hear that you should play to your strength. It’s one of those things that we all acknowledge but often don’t put into practice.
I’m in Oklahoma prefishing on Grand Lake o’ the Cherokees for this year’s Fish and Chips combination tournament.
