A look back and forward

The season's over, and going into that last tournament already knowing that I wasn't going to make the Classic changed my perspective.

A humbling sport

Kentucky Lake was a dismal event for me. Some representatives from Bethel University were at the weigh-in with their new athletic recruits. The cool thing about it is that they are receiving scholarships to join the fishing team!

A Change of pace

May 13, 2010

Apr 15, 2010

Today Little Alton turned 18. This is a milestone for him, Jimmye Sue and me. We're coming to grips with that fact that our kids are growing up, and Little A will be laving soon to go to college this next year.

Meet the Joneses in Virginia

Apr 8, 2010

We're in Virginia, but not quite to Smith Mountain Lake yet. I like to get to tournaments a day or two early. I don't like starting practice while I'm exhausted from the drive unless I have to.
