The Calm Before The Storm

The most stupid thing in the world is to challenge a storm

A lot of things have happened weather wise this year – floods, tornadoes, thunder and lightening: Every bit of it becoming more of a way of life than the occasional nasty day.

I’ve had a lot of nasty days in the last few decades. A long, long, long time ago when I moved from Chicago to Southwest Michigan, I remember fishing a Thursday night tournament near Coldwater. There were probably 30 to 40 boats in this tournament and it was a little three-hour deal (6 p.m. to 9 p.m.).


It's Show Time

The question I get most often about doing Zona’s Awesome Fishing Show is: how long does it take to film?

It sounds like a really easy question, but I don’t think there is a clear-cut answer. All the years I watched Jerry McKinnis do the “The Fishin’ Hole,” I thought, “That seems about as easy as it could be.”
