Gotta love outdoor shows!

Jan 10, 2013

I’m no different than most of you when it comes to outdoors shows. I love attending, although I’m usually there to give seminars or make public appearances. Admittedly, the travel becomes a headache, but I always get excited when I’m on the show floor.

No Classic pre-practice for me

Nov 30, 2012

Several Bassmaster Classic qualifiers are headed to Grand Lake this week before the off-limits period, but I decided to stay home. Practicing works for a lot of guys, especially those who have never been there. I tend to shy away from visiting these lakes too far ahead of the tournament. I’ve fished Grand many times, so I know it pretty well. But it makes sense for guys like my nephew, Jonathon, who has never seen the lake and will benefit from getting a look at what’s there.

Nov 16, 2012

This is a big week for me and it has nothing to do with fishing. Thursday was the opener of our deer firearms season and the bucks are chasing does. Although it’s the gun season, you can still hunt with a bow, something I really love. I went with my sons a few times during the early archery season. We saw some deer but didn’t take a shot. We’re not seeing the deer we saw a few years ago. Our numbers are down here in southern Michigan due to the EHD virus that has hit us the past couple of years.
