The Toyota Texas Bass Classic began this morning on Lake Conroe, 40 minutes north of Houston. In its short six-year history, it has quickly become considered one of the greatest events in all of professional bass fishing by top pros like Kelly Jordon, Gerald Swindle, and Terry Scroggins.

Bass anglers everywhere can now officially be jealous of Matt Landry of Houston, Texas. Landry won B.A.S.S.’s “Fish With KVD” sweepstakes.

I get to do something really cool on Monday. I'm going to be addressing a group of Cub Scouts. I love getting to engage children in small groups like this, especially boys who love the outdoors.
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.
