ICAST is over. I have to say it was one of the better ones. The crowds looked to be good and, from what I could see, the buyers were buying.
We had our vacation planned for a year. We were headed to Sonoma, Calif. to visit the wine country. We left on Saturday morning for San Francisco. The plane that crashed out there was in front of us. We couldn’t land. The airport was closed. We were diverted to Reno, Nev. Before I go any further with our story, though, I want to make it clear that whatever initial hassles we had going on our vacation were nothing compared to what the crash victims suffered. Their problems go far beyond a slight vacation delay.
It’s July. It’s time to celebrate Independence Day to its fullest.
I’ll tell you what, the Mississippi River is full of bass. Almost every angler caught fish all day long up there.
As I write this, I’m getting ready to go back out on the Mississippi River to see if I can find some winning bass. Before we get into that, however, I want to say a few words about my dad.
The Mississippi River Elite Series tournament is right around the corner. Am I ever excited!
Before we talk about fishing, Holly and I want to express our support for the people in Oklahoma, and the other states, who have been hit by all those tornadoes. Those people don’t seem to be able to get a break.
The spawn’s over, or at least most of it. Now’s the time to go catch a few and maybe have one of the best numbers days of your fishing life.
After a couple of Elite tournaments and an Open, it’s time for some rest and it’s time to spend some time with the family at the house.
Fishing rivers in the middle of May and the middle of June is something that’s right up my alley.
