Blowouts, desert and more blowouts

Apr 5, 2010

I wish I could tell you this has been an uneventful trip out West, but unfortunately it's been very eventful. Wednesday afternoon we had a flat tire on the big double-stack trailer.

Happy Easter! Go Bears!

Apr 2, 2010

It's been a busy week here at home; we've mainly been getting things done around the house. The kids have been extremely busy with school.

College hoops and bass

Coming back from California is kind of like having jetlag. It's like coming back from Japan or something. Between the long drive and the time change, it's tough.

Clearly not my best work

Right now there are dogs and kids playing together, the women are chatting and the men are talking fishing and retying baits and stuff. When I look back on seasons past, it's times like these that I have the fondest memories of.

Day 1 of the Duel in the Delta is over, and it was a tough bite. It was that way all through practice, so I knew it could be a tough event.

Going West!

Before we get into the Elite season stuff, I have one final comment on the Classic. I mentioned in the last blog that I was disappointed in my poor execution, but at the same time, a poor tournament has given me a sense of God's presence in my life.

Day 1 disappointment

Feb 19, 2010

Day 1 of the Classic is over, and I've got to tell you, I'm disappointed. Honestly, 6-12 is not what I was on in practice.

One more day

Feb 18, 2010

Well, the last practice day is over, and now it's time to wait. Yesterday I had eight bites — all small.

The final practice

Feb 17, 2010

Day 1 of practice was one of the few times I've fished in an absolute blizzard. Our predictions of this cold winter Classic are coming true.
