My partner, Pete Gluszek, and I are holding The Bass University this weekend in Shreveport, La. We're going to be honored with an appearance by Jerry McKinnis on Saturday.
Well, I hope everyone had a great Christmas and a happy New Year's celebration, and I wish you all the best for this year. I had a wonderful time with family and friends, and now I'm down at Lake Amistad for a three-fold trip.
