I’m still in New York. The fish are moving quickly into their fall patterns, and I’m thinking Oneida will be an interesting tournament.
I’m up on Lake Champlain in New York chasing smallmouth. It’s a great time of the year to do that.
I have to tell you that I got my nerve up and fished my beloved Tuesday Night Tournament last week. I didn’t get in too much trouble for doing that, either. And I won!
I’ve been thinking about things over the last few days and I have to tell you I’m kind of proud of myself.
My first catch in practice was in the exact same spot where I caught my first Lake Erie smallmouth as a kid.

I love our Marshal Program. Fishing at the Elite level without having to share your fish is a dream come true for most of us.
I’m over on Lake Ontario, and I’m catching smallies to the point where I feel fish drunk. It’s unbelievable.
Last weekend was a big deal for me. I made my inaugural Lake Erie trip of the year and caught my first 5-pound smallie. I have to say that of all the places I’ve fished Lake Erie is probably my favorite.
