As I start off a new year with a new column, I have a great feeling of excitement and anticipation for what 2014 might bring.
This week I want to write about something I saw last week that I believe is affecting, and will continue to affect, out sport. That is its growing popularity. When I did the math from Lake Okeechobee over the weekend I realized that there were over 400 boats fishing various tournaments.
It’s the first day of a new year. It’s one of my most favorite times because it signals that in the fishing world everything that’s gone before is over. From here on out everything will be fresh and new.
This week I want to talk about Christmas in America, what it’s all about and why I love this country as much as I do.
I’m writing this on Friday so I can spend next week and the week after with Becky and the kids. Right now I’m down on Guntersville trying to get ready for the Classic.
The first tournament of the year is off and running, which always brings excitement to the sport. A new year, new goals, and new guys will qualify for the Classic and Bassmaster Elite Series.
It’s hard to believe it is already 2013. With every New Year comes the time to make a resolution to better yourself.
How's your "game"? Are you as good as you want to be at the using the latest baits and methods, or do you need something new for your bag of tricks?
As we head into January, I wish everyone a safe, happy and prosperous New Year!
New Year's is a good time to both reflect on the past year and look ahead to the upcoming year.
