The truth

Aug 26, 2010

Abu Garcia introduced a new line of fishing rods this year at ICAST. They're named Veritas, after the Latin word for "truth." The name was chosen because we wanted to cut through all the hype and the bull and offer a rod that actually performed at or above its advertising. We wanted to tell the truth.

The Jersey Shore

Aug 19, 2010

No, I'm not talking about the MTV reality TV show. I'm talking about our family vacation this summer. It was one of the best ever. We really had a good time.

The BASS postseason

Aug 15, 2010

I've been asked about my thoughts on the new postseason format that BASS is using to determine the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year. I'm going to do that, but before I do, I'm going to ask you to read my entire response; not just a part of it; before you form an opinion about what I think.

A wild week

Jul 22, 2010

Last week was a wild one. We (Becky and I) went to Las Vegas and to ICAST for my sponsors and so we could enjoy a short vacation. This week was all about work, though.

Tough going

Jul 10, 2010

My practice has been tough. Basically Monday and Tuesday were a waste. I didn't develop anything that will help me when the competition starts. Kentucky Lake is a great fishery, but that greatness has a drawback.

Think deep!

Jul 8, 2010

During the summer months, there are always some bass deep. They go there for a number of reasons including food, comfort and oxygen. No matter the reason, you can rest assured that when you find them deep they'll be active and feeding.

Think thick

Jul 1, 2010

I don't care where you're fishing; New Jersey, Ohio, Florida or California; at this time of the year you can find bass by looking thick, looking deep or looking in current. This week we'll talk thick. Next week we'll talk deep.

R & R

Jun 24, 2010

The 2010 Bassmaster Elite Series is in the books. I didn't have a very good event in Oklahoma. Finishing 56th out of 93 isn't my idea of a good time. And I didn't qualify for the postseason. That's not where I want to be, either. Still, all is not lost. I'm a solid qualifier for the 2011 Bassmaster Classic. I'm proud of that.

Bummed out!

Jun 17, 2010

Am I ever bummed out. I mean, I know that the Arkansas River was high and muddy. I know the current was swift and dangerous. I know everything was a total mess.But let me tell you what else I know — I was whacking them

Finding the sweet spot

Jun 3, 2010

We're on our way to Kentucky Lake. There's no doubt this tournament will be won offshore, out on the ledges. With that in mind, there's one question I get all the time; how do you guys find those little spots on mile-long ledges that hold the fish? The answer is we use a combination of two methods.
