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.

I've been busy lately. I'm working on this from Chicago while I'm headed home. My new boat's waiting for me at my brother's place. I'll pick it up on my way home from the airport. Then I need to get it packed for the Classic and the first couple of Elite Series tournaments.
