The weather’s been a little tough out here, but I have to tell you that this has really been a fun Classic for me and the family.
It’s about noon. I’m on my way back from practice. As nasty and ugly as it is out there I have to say that this weather didn’t hurt my fishing or my Classic strategy one bit. In fact, it might have gotten better after this morning.
I’ll tell you what, this is going to be a Classic! I spent three days on the water and at this point the only thing I can say is that the fish are big and scattered.
What a year this has been! I dreamed most of my life about being a Bassmaster Classic champion. But, in truth, I had no idea what it would really be like.
I’m still in Florida getting ready to fish another tournament. That one should be over on Sunday. I’ll fly home as soon as possible after that to get ready for the Classic.
I’m finally back on the water catching bass. It’s been too long for me. This is a refreshing experience, getting ready for the Open later this week on Toho.
It’s been another busy week around the Lane house. We had a couple of meaningful birthdays this week, not the least of which was my sister, Kellie’s. We always try to recognize special days. Everyone likes to have one day that belongs to them.
Last week was busy, busy, busy. Anyone who doubts that this is a business should have been with me.
In just a little over three weeks we’ll be on Lake Toho for the first Southern Open. I thought we’d talk a little about it. That’ll give those of you who don’t know much about that great fishery some insights into what might happen.
It’s time to get ready for 2013. That means the first thing on my schedule is the Bassmaster Classic in February.
