It’s a rare tournament when conditions stay exactly the same from practice to competition.
I just pulled into my motel at the Alabama River. I’ve never been here before so it’s a real treat. You can feel the bass fishing history as soon as you get out of your vehicle. It’s everywhere.
I have to say that this year’s Elite Series schedule is the best ever. It favors no fishing style and tests everyone’s versatility.
This past week I’ve had a chance to reflect on the Bull Shoals event and on some of the things that happened there.
When I arrived at Bull Shoals, I went trout fishing for a little while before official practice.
The Open on Douglas is over. As I look back on things, I think it’s fair to say that it was a learning experience for all of us if we take the time to think things through.
It’s springtime. That’s about as good as it gets in the fishing world. It’s a pleasure to be on the water.
I’ve been on Douglas Lake in Tennessee for the last several days. What a change this is! In Zapata, Texas, it was around the 100-degree mark, the water was bath warm and the fish were in their postspawn mode. Here it’s just the opposite.
Last week I talked about the Sabine River and how the tournament was likely to be a good one. It sure turned out that way. The finish was exciting.
While you’re reading this, I’ll be doing some last minute practice on the Sabine River.
