Last season, as I traveled around the country competing in bass fishing tournaments, I noticed something. The guys who were (are) the most physically fit seem to have the best years and they seemed to be able to hold up the best going into the late summer and early fall.
I’m in the office working today. I was going to call this column "Stuff and Thanksgiving," but that would imply there’s a limit to what I have to do so I decided to create a new word that’ll describe how far behind I am — stuffs. It means stuff that never ends.
When we started designing our new treble hook rod, the first thing I wanted to do was use a new length.
Veterans Day is about more than hailing our men and women in uniform right now. It’s about all those who served throughout our history.
It’s one thing to trick a bass into biting something. It’s another to do it on, or with, something you have designed yourself. There’s no feeling like it.
It's a spooky time at the Iaconelli house this week.
If you’re looking toward big tournaments and maybe a professional career, multiple map study and comparison is a must.
Once the Erie tournament started, the time for practice and looking around was over. I had my spots and I knew what I wanted to do. It was just a matter of executing.
By the last day of practice, I knew where the fish were and I was pretty sure I knew how to catch them. The thing was, though, that I had to make a plan as to which spots to fish… and in what order.
OK, so I knew where I was going to fish — the island area — and I had my maps and other sources of information out for review.
