Power-Pole: A versatile tool

May 14, 2012

Too many anglers think of a Power-Pole as a bedding bass tool. They figure if they don’t fish much for bedding bass it isn’t worth the cost. Nothing could be further from the truth.

No rest for the weary

As I write this I’m sitting in 34th place in the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year standings. That’s most certainly not where I want to be.

Kickin' back

Apr 30, 2012

Last week was great, absolutely fantastic. Becky, Vegas and I spent a few days at a motel near Douglas Lake just kickin’ back and enjoying life.

It’s a matter of pride

I was up with Randy VanDam (Kevin’s brother) at the D & R Sports Center in Kalamazoo, Michigan a couple of weeks ago doing seminars and the response was overwhelming.

Working without a net, Part 1

OK guys, it’s time for Going Ike, my new TV show, to get rolling. It’s a chance for you to participate by submitting your favorite ocean, lake, river or stream to be featured on one of our shows. And it’s a chance for you to see me fishing without a net.

Yes, lure color matters

Recently, I had the privilege of working with Rapala on some new colors for their DT baits.

It’s fun to develop new bass baits

Mar 26, 2012

I want to talk a little about fishing lure development. Sometimes it’s a carefully mapped out plan that comes together with anglers, engineers and manufacturing companies. Other times, it’s just something that happens. That’s the way it was with the new Havoc Smash Tube from Berkley.

The learning curve and Florida

Mar 19, 2012

Having the first weekend off in the 2012 Elite season isn’t my idea of a good time. Nevertheless, it’s Florida. I honestly don’t know why but the Sunshine State has always been a challenge to me.

It’s time to get back to work

Mar 12, 2012

It’s Sunday. We’re on our way to Palatka from the airport in Orlando to get ready to prefish the St. Johns River.
