Thanks to some great work by the local police and the lake police, Cal’s boat was found on a sandbar at the upper end of the lake.
I spent part of today sitting in the car thinking about some things that have happened recently that are bothering me. I’m referring to crime and how it impacts the fishing community.
There’s a front moving through Guntersville today. I’m thinking this is the official start of the bass fishing's fall feeding frenzy almost everywhere.
Facebook fan Steve Hendrix asked me for tips on fishing super clear, cold water mountain lakes that have very little cover in them and that fluctuate 20 to 30 feet each year. Here goes...
Grass, or more generally vegetation, is the lifeblood of a lake or river as far as fishing is concerned.
I’m sitting in my son’s johnboat on Lake Guntersville this morning thinking about things in between bites. I can’t help but look at the sport of fishing, where we started and where we’re headed. It’s incredible to me.
Fish are fish but that’s where the similarity ends when it comes to largemouth bass and smallmouth bass. In my experience they’re two very different kinds of fish, and it takes two very different approaches to catch them.
I thought this might be a good time to take a look back at how things went this year. I know I learned a lot that’ll help me in the future, and maybe some of it will help you.
This is a true week for rest and relaxation. I’ve made it to the Classic. Basically, my fishing season is over. I’ll spend some time on the water and with sponsors but for the next few days at least it’ll be family, friends, football and fishing the mats on Guntersville.
What a week! I qualified for the 2014 Bassmaster Classic on my home lake. That’s a big deal. I sure didn’t want to sit that one out if I could help it.
