I'm getting ready to go back on the road at the end of the week. At this level, fishing never stops. It's a 12-month activity regardless of what else is going on in your life.
I'm back in Columbus after three tournaments in three weeks. I got a check in two of them and should have had one in the third.
I'm the kind of guy who must have things in order and who must concentrate on the task at hand. That's especially true when it comes to fishing.
I'm telling you, fishing during a major summer holiday can get tough. There were boats everywhere last weekend.
As you guys know, I love to fish docks. It's my favorite way to fish. Fort Gibson was my wish, my favorite way to fish — or so I thought.
I've always dreamed about a big tournament where no one had any practice time. Well, it almost came true this time.
Last week was an exciting one for me. On Thursday I did a demonstration at a local pond here in Columbus for the Hartley Hogs.
Clarks Hill was reasonably good to me, all things considered. This is my third check in a row.
I stopped at Lake Murray on my way to Clarks Hill and did something I haven't done in a long time — slept in my truck. The topwater bite was so good I fished late into the night.
