Holy cow... where has the time gone. So much has happened in the last 3 months and it seems like yesterday when I was off to fish Lake Erie in the middle of Aug.
Armed with some more confidence after getting over my beat down on the James River, I took my less practice approach and smoked'em at the next 3 events. I finished 5th at the BASS Northern Open on Lake Erie, 5th at the FLW/BFL Super Tournament on 1000 Islands in the beginning of Sept. and then finished 12th at the final BASS Northern Open on Lake Oneida.
The common factor in all those events was practice hard but not to many days before the derby. I really digg fishing for them smalljaws up north. It's hard to have more fun than fighting 4lb smallies on 8lb test in 4 foot waves.... that is a total rush! It felt great to end the season strong and I will look forward to carrying that momentum into 2012 season as I compete in the Southern and Northern BASS Opens again. It's hard to believe that in just 8 weeks I will be on the Harris Chain in the first tournament of the new year.
