When the timber is everywhere, the fish aren’t relating to it like they do to a few stickups. Saying they’re on the wood is like saying they’re in the water. It’s of no help whatsoever.
Ike reflects on the frustration he experienced at Douglas Lake.
Ike is looking back on the lessons he learned through the 2012 Bassmaster Elite Series season. Bull Shoals was a pattern fisherman's dream.
Ike takes us through his season -- event by event. Here's his take on Lake Okeechobee and what he learned there.
When we stopped last week I was in the middle of telling you why the two small bass I caught on the third day of the Oneida event made for one of my best days ever.
The math worked in my favor. I claimed the last Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year slot for next year’s Bassmaster Classic. That’s a lot of weight off my shoulders.
The Open on Cayuga Lake is over; that event got me pumped up for the final Elite Series tournament on Oneida Lake later this week. It’ll be a challenge because I have so much riding on the outcome, but hey, that’s what this business is all about.
After some on-the-water tests, I am rethinking how I pack my boat for bass fishing.

The Ramada Championship on Oneida Lake is coming up, and I’m holding down slot number 31 in the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year points race. That’s too close for comfort as far as I’m concerned.
