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.
The 2010 Bassmaster Classic is history. There are some lessons from it that we, as bass anglers, can learn and that'll help us in the future.
Overall, I'm really excited. I think BASS did a good job of putting us on premier bass fisheries at the right times. And this schedule should help me fish to my strengths. How could I not be excited about something like that?
In this photo gallery, you'll find images detailing a chronological history of pursuit of the world record largemouth bass since the 1920s.
Dedicated bass readers submit photos of their 'lunkers.' This album contains images submitted for the February 2010 instalment of the Lunker Club.
As many of you know, I try to take advantage of my downtime. To me, that's very important. I spend time with my family, enjoy the holidays and do a lot of hunting. The late duck season just ended up here. Both boys got ducks this year. How's that for a successful year in the outdoors with your kids?
Winter is beginning to settle into many parts of our country. That means less fishing and more dreaming about next year and what you're going to need to catch them come spring.
