The Jones Clan is in Alabama now, and we're getting settled in for the Classic. I'm making final preparations for practice, which starts today, and they're a little different this year.
Make room for another Alton Jones on tour. No, Jimmye Sue and I aren't having another child. Little Alton recently started fishing team tournaments out of his own boat.
Well, I just got back from Falcon Lake. I went down to pick up the motor home for the upcoming Elite season.
Right now I'm in Destin, Fla., for an educational seminar at Bass Pro Shops. It's for all the Bass Pro managers.
I just got back from another trip to Lake Falcon. My "excuse" was to break in the new Yamaha VMax SHO, and break it in I did. It's fantastic.
My boat — which was supposed to be wrapped and ready for me to pick up Monday — is still in the shop. When I got there, they had printed one of the logos in a terribly wrong color.
I got to spend a day on the water with Colt McCoy and Jordan Shipley. It was in Bassmaster Magazine and on Bassmaster.com as well. If you'll remember, I drove the boat as Shipley stood on the deck and Colt threw a 40-mph slant to Justin.
