Looking at the 2014 tournament season

Oct 2, 2013

I’ve started to look over the 2014 schedule. The process of putting things together is more complicated than some people think.

Fall time is the best time

Sep 25, 2013

It’s fall. That means the best fishing of the year is going to happen in the next few weeks.

I love her anyway

Lake Erie can be an extraordinary fishery. I had a huge sack on the first day up there, then the winds came, Friday was cancelled and my bite disappeared.

The great Great Lakes

Sep 11, 2013

Usually when the wind is blowing in the morning on Lake Erie, it gets stronger as the day goes along. But that wasn’t the case yesterday.

Elite Series pro Charlie Hartley runs into former Classic champ Takahiro Omori on Lake Erie.

Detroit: What an event!

Aug 28, 2013

By now we’re all back from Detroit. I have to say that it was one of the more exciting, and most interesting, events in recent memory.

Lake St. Clair: Going for broke

Aug 21, 2013

Tomorrow we’ll be starting the last Elite Series tournament of the 2013 season. I wish we had several more coming up. It would be OK with me if B.A.S.S. doubled the number of Elites.

Happy Birthday, Charlie!

Aug 14, 2013

Last Thursday, August 8, was my birthday. I spent the day fishing the first day of competition on the St. Lawrence River.

It’s about electronics

Aug 7, 2013

The St. Lawrence River is a tournament that’s all about electronics and what they do for bass anglers. There’s an island everywhere up here. In fact, there are so many of them that picking one out to fish is a real challenge.

New York, New York

Jul 31, 2013

Most of us think about New York City when someone mentions New York. That’s the natural thing to do. But that’s not all there is to this wonderful state. Much of it is rural and isolated, a paradise for hunters and anglers.
