Disney, then ICAST

It’s all about the smallmouth

I’m up on Green Bay getting ready for the Mystery Lake event that isn’t a mystery anymore. I’m just about as excited as a bass angler can get. This is going to be a good one. I cut my teeth on smallmouth so it’s kind of like going back to the beginning.

Power-Pole: A versatile tool

May 14, 2012

Too many anglers think of a Power-Pole as a bedding bass tool. They figure if they don’t fish much for bedding bass it isn’t worth the cost. Nothing could be further from the truth.

No rest for the weary

May 7, 2012

As I write this I’m sitting in 34th place in the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year standings. That’s most certainly not where I want to be.

Apr 30, 2012

Last week was great, absolutely fantastic. Becky, Vegas and I spent a few days at a motel near Douglas Lake just kickin’ back and enjoying life.
