Most of last week was spent with my dad on the St. Johns River. I wish I could say we caught a ton of big ones but the truth is we spent more time fishing than we did catching. Nevertheless, it was one of my best weeks ever.
I’m in Florida fishing the St. Johns River and getting ready to pick my dad up at the airport. He’s flying in from out West to fish with me for a few days.
Last week I said we’d review the Open with an eye towards lessons learned. That’s going to be a little tough because I’m clueless as to what happened on the second day.
I’m on the water with my new friend, Alan Patterson, getting ready for the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Southern Open later this week.
I’m on the Harris Chain right now. This weather is wonderful. I ran full throttle this morning in a shirt and a pair of shorts. How great is that?
I should have been more careful about what I said last week. After bragging about our great weather, things went downhill fast.
This year we had a wonderful Christmas. I can’t remember ever having a better one except maybe when I was a kid. I got to spend time with the family, relax and open several really neat presents. One of the best ones was from Abu Garcia.
I’m back in Columbus. My plant manager is out so I’ve got to work at my “real” job. I sure wanted to stay in Florida, though. The fish are biting like crazy. Okeechobee just might be the hottest lake in our country right now.
OK guys, I’ve just finished my first sailfish tournament. The only thing it had in common with a bass tournament is that they’re both held on water. After that, it’s two different worlds.
I’m in Florida fishing Lake Okeechobee and I have to say I’m having the time of my life.
