Fishing like a maniac

May 6, 2013

One thing that I’ve done over the years that I think has helped me in tournaments is to fish in practice like a maniac.

The Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Central Open on the Red River is over. I have to say that I feel a lot better about the rest of the season now that it’s behind me.

One down, three to go

I’m glad that Cliff Pace won the 2013 Bassmaster Classic and I’ll tell you why.

I'm a happy man

Today went about as well as I could have expected. I knew this morning that the only way I had a chance with this thing was to bag 25 or 30 pounds.
