Fulfilling The Commission

May 15, 2008

One cold December day in 1968, while I was fishing at Lake Eufaula, Ala., I met Mr. Tom Scott at Chewalla Marina. He was in an 18-foot Skeeter boat with a 70-horsepower — the biggest boat and motor I had ever seen. I knew him from his days as a student at Auburn University; I was just a kid, and he and a cousin of mine used to take me squirrel hunting.

The phone call I received early one evening in 1967 remains etched in my memory. The voice on the other end said, "I'm Ray Scott. Your name was given to me by W.A. Bill Cox Jr. He said you worked with him on a spotted bass article. I'm hoping you'll be able to help me. I recently organized a bass tournament that was held on Beaver Lake in Arkansas. The tournament was a success and I am excited!"

70-Year-Old Tackle

In the mid-'60s, I fished from the bank, or a small aluminum johnboat, mostly small ponds and lakes close to home. I fished with minnows some when I was a kid.

Treated Like A Lady

May 15, 2008

I had been fishing for a lot of years before BASS came along. I read about it in Field & Stream magazine, and I said, "I gotta get in on that. Anything that had to do with fishing, I wanted to be part of it."
