A long three weeks

Oct 24, 2011

I’ve had some time off the past two or three weeks. It’s given me time to relax my mind and my body. Now it’s time to pay the piper, big time. I’m on my way to Texas for a Toyota event.

Putting it all together

Oct 17, 2011

If you’re going to learn a new technique, you have to fish it.

Modify your frog and throw it with the right tackle

Oct 10, 2011

I would never have caught the fish I did on Oneida fishing a frog out of the package, even one as good as the Snag Proof Ish’s Phat Frog. First thing is to turn the hooks out.

Developing a pattern

Oct 3, 2011

Last week we talked in generalities about my frog success. This week we’ll look at how I developed my pattern and the lessons we can learn from it.

Oneida was awesome

Sep 26, 2011

I just fished the best tournament I’ve had in a long time. It was one of those events where everything went my way. It’s not often you’ll hear me say that unless I had a win.

Organization matters

Sep 19, 2011

Last week I made an offhand reference to forgetting my long underwear and my maps. It’s hard to fish when you’re cold, and even harder when you don’t know where to go or what section of the lake to target.

Green goes with brown

Sep 12, 2011

I’m up on a giant, Northern natural lake that’s full of really big smallmouth bass getting ready for a tournament.

New lures on the way

Sep 6, 2011

I have spent the last week working with Berkley and Rapala on new fishing lure designs and colors. It’s a part of my job that I like the best...

Races & rocks

Aug 30, 2011

I’m back from the Toyota and NASCAR experience, and what an experience it was. I’ve never seen or done anything like it.

A Change of Plans

Aug 22, 2011

Things change. I’m not going to fish the Open on Lake Erie. I’m going to the Bristol Motor Speedway to work with one of my sponsors, Toyota.
