Trying to be successful in tournaments can sometimes take the joy out of fishing if you let it.
A couple weeks ago, I took a young man fishing, and I want to share his inspiring story about his father.
Looking at the Toyota Angler of the Year standings, and comparing the current list to the list that was posted last month, you may ask, “Where did Brandon Card go?”
Tournament bass fishing is one of the most humbling things I do.
The past couple of weeks in Texas were a blast. I really enjoyed both Bassmaster Elite Series events down there. Falcon was fun because it was a slugfest, and I love catching giants. Sabine was fun because every keeper there was like gold.
I grew up watching The Bassmasters, and I am sure I watched many Bassmaster Classics throughout my childhood, but the first one that I can remember really well was the ‘98 Classic that Denny Brauer won.
Think back to the last time you watched the Bassmasters Classic coverage and saw a guy lose a big fish and still go on to win? I sure don’t remember it.
The first tournament of the year is off and running, which always brings excitement to the sport. A new year, new goals, and new guys will qualify for the Classic and Bassmaster Elite Series.
After only fishing professionally for one year now, I can really appreciate what guys like Rick Clunn, Gary Klein and Denny Brauer have done for many years.
It’s hard to believe it is already 2013. With every New Year comes the time to make a resolution to better yourself.
