Prefishing’s a wash!

Apr 27, 2011

Well, I went to make a scouting trip to the Arkansas River yesterday morning. My plan was to fish yesterday afternoon, all day today and tomorrow, and then work my way to West Point Lake in Georgia.

A new phone and an old RV

Well, those of you who follow along weekly may recall last week how I waded into Toledo Bend and destroyed my iPhone in the process. I wish all of my phone troubles went away at that point, but it got worse.

I'm very grateful to have caught the fish that I caught last week and to have gotten the 5th place finish that I had at Pickwick and to have retained the lead in the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year race.

Practice makes perfect!

I'm here on the Harris Chain in Florida today for the first day of practice of the Elite Series season. I've been idling and trolling around quite a bit trying to put the finishing touches on my game plan.

Ready to roll

At the end of last week, I did a little prefishing on West Point Lake in Georgia. Before then, I had never laid eyes on that lake. So, I did a lot of riding around and a lot of looking as well as a little fishing.

'Bama bound!

Well, we were home just long enough to unpack, do the laundry then repack. Now it's time to hit the road again. Preparation this time is a little bit more in-depth.

St. Johns delivers!

There is always disappointment when you're leading a tournament and then don't win, but especially when you lead the whole thing and fall to third. I want to win every event that I fish, but losing in a situation like this is tough.

A great start!

It felt fantastic to start the season off with a Top 10 finish on the Harris Chain. This is in stark contrast with last season when I went through the whole campaign without making a single final-day cut.

Preparation is paramount

One of the mantras that I live by is that preparation is more important than game day. Usually that means putting in your time on the water scouting before cutoffs and then buckling down during the actual practice days.

KVD pajamas?

I don't know how else to say it, but I know someone who does: "Some people wear Superman pajamas, but Superman wears KVD pajamas."
