Bassmaster Elite Series Opens Season on Texas' Lake Amistad
I feel much better today. I fished where I should have fished yesterday and I caught them. I made a bad decision yesterday; that's really clear to me now after the one I made today. It's all about location.
I found a spot in practice the other day and decided to take a chance on it. (I wish now I hadn't found it.) They were really in there and really biting. I thought I could find them today even with the cooling water temperatures
I've been busy the last couple of weeks. It's boat show season so I've been flying around the country making appearances and giving seminars. In between shows I've been trying to get my tackle organized for the Classic and this year's Elite Series.
In this photo gallery, you'll find images from Elite Night at the 2009 Bassmaster Classic on the Red River, near Shreveport, Louisiana.
The Classic is only a few days away. I'm on my way to Scott Rook's and from there I'll head to the Red River with my new boat. This is an exciting time of the year for me. I love fishing the Classic, and I love getting a new boat.
