Jerry's thinking about how to best impact the world of bass fishing. Creating new anglers is on top of his list.
Remember how I've said in the past that I don't like the expression "Grow the sport?" The reason for that is the fact that, in my opinion, it's an overused phrase and one that is not acted on enough.
When things really start rolling for College B.A.S.S. I’m sure you college students and bass fishing freaks are going to say “It’s about time…” and you’ll be right.
Actually the whole bass fishing world has been on a Hite kick, what with his son being accepted to West Point and his big emotional victory on the Elite Series last week in Alabama. Yes sir, there's a lot of stories circling around this man and they're all good.
Last week I went to Kentucky Lake and fished in the FLW Everstart series. Word on the street was really surprising as to why I was there. Can you guess my real motive?
I hope that my extreme respect and just plain love for most of the Bassmaster Elite Series anglers never gets in the way of moving the ball up the court and making good moves for this organization.
I'm back. I haven't written my blog for so long, you thought I was gone didn't you? Actually, during the Classic I caught the flu so bad and I'm just now starting to feel like myself. I was so badly sick I was afraid you would catch it just by reading my writings.
Can I talk about something that has nothing to do with bass fishing, but has everything to do with bass fishing? Quite honestly all I can think about is Kevin Oldham, a 34-year-old firefighter from Chicago who is fighting Cancer.
Now I've told this story on several occasions before, and I'm going to try and tell it again, from a different angle. The story is about how a little pound and a half bass, which doesn't have a clue as to what's going on above the water, can be so important to so many fans.
Predications on who will be the Bassmaster Classic champion are a dime a dozen. Every newspaper article or website having anything to do with the outdoors has a guess from people who think they know the winner.
