I’m here at the Toyota Texas Bass Classic on Lake Fork this weekend and giant bass are biting.
What a difference a couple of years can make. That’s never more evident than what we’re seeing here at Toledo Bend this week.
‘Tis the season when fish get wary. They’re spawning in some southern states and might even be in the postspawn mode on others. Up north, the ice is leaving and bass are starting to nose around in the shallows.
This long break between tournaments gives Elite pros a chance to spend quality time with families and work with the public.
Table Rock Lake continues to amaze me with how quickly the fish can change patterns.
With the nation’s spring weather out of kilter due to the brutal winter, it’s natural to assume that seasonal patterns will develop later because of colder water temperatures. However, water temperatures don’t dictate everything.
Several spring tournaments have revealed a technique that pro anglers have embraced and weekend anglers are starting to discover – fishing bladed jigs in the early prespawn.
When you're a tournament angler, few things are as important as good preparation, and that includes practice.
It's easy to let tough fishing or a lost fish ruin your day, but I'm here to tell you that a big part of what separates successful tournament anglers from the ones who don't perform as well as they could is the ability to salvage the bad days, turn them into productive days and move on.
It’s off to Florida this week where all Bassmaster Elite pros are thinking the same thing – I want to kick off the year with a good start.
