Last week’s tournament on Dardanelle was a good one for me, although I’m not exactly sure why.
I spent last week in Texas at the Toyota Texas Bass Classic on Lake Fork. Things went a little better. Winning any tournament I’m fishing is always my goal, and I didn’t do that, but I did catch some fish and at least made a respectable showing.
My intention this week was to write all about the upcoming tournament and how I feel rejuvenated after a little time off. But Kevin and Kerry Short’s house being damaged has put a real damper on that.
Easter is a wild weekend around here, at least as wild as the Iaconelli household gets.
This was supposed to be an off week for us but it’s turned into one of the busiest I’ve (we’ve) had all year. Sometimes I think the easiest part of this is fishing tournaments.
The Table Rock event went a little better.... I can say that at least it wasn’t a complete disaster like the first two Elite Series events.
My thinking about the third group we were talking about — the group that gets upset, learns and then puts everything behind them — is that it’s really the only viable option you have.
Last week I said something like my tournament performance on Seminole was horrible.
My tournament performance on Lake Seminole was horrible. I didn’t get it done. Heck, I didn’t even come close to getting it done.
There are times when almost any color will catch bass. The bites on; they’re eating with total abandon. But that’s not the way it is most days. Easy doesn’t usually define fishing.
