I hope I don't have to fish 160+ events in BASS before I get my first win. My hats off to him for working through all the "what if's and "should 'a been's" to claim his first BASS trophy. It takes a lot of passion and determination to stick to it and have continued confidence that one day it will all come together.
As for me, what a way to get the season started! A finish in the 140's, wow! Drove 20 hours there and 20 hours back with nothing to show for it. Well all is not lost. I have fished 7 events in Florida now. I have cashed 2 times and both of those came in the fall. I really have a lot to learn about those fickle Florida bass in the spring. If I had wrote how the tournament was going to be won and how other techniques would play significant roles, you would have thought I could have mustered at least a top 50 showing. After analyzing and learning from it, I am now over it and looking forward to fishing the rest of the week here at Amistad, where you can actually pattern fish!
