When you travel as much as I do, having a partner (or partners) to share time with is a major plus — kind of like a support group on wheels.
B.A.S.S. writer Don Barone salutes the work ethic of anglers like Elite Series pro Jamie Horton, who hold down full-time jobs while simultaneously pursuing their professional angling dreams.

I spent last weekend working sport shows in Novi, Mich. (near Detroit), and in Cincinnati.
My busy schedule begins now and will take me right into February's Bassmaster Classic.
For the last few weeks I've been in between boats, and it's occurred to me that one of the most important decisions you can make is what boat you buy and where you buy it from.
I was at the Bass Pro Shops in Cincinnati and a couple of other tackle shops in the Midwest on behalf of Venom Lures. The crowds were extraordinary.
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.
If you've done much bass fishing, you've heard the old saying about following the birds to find the bass. Well, like most old sayings, it's partly true.
I'm sorry that this is being posted late, but it's been a week like no other, at least no other I can remember. I'm filming commercials for Nitro Boats and for the Bass Pro Shops Spring Classics. Because of scheduling issues, we have to do four days' work in two and a half. I have to admit, though, in some ways it's a lot of fun.
