BASS Elite Series #3 - Table Rock Lake, MO

I spent the week off between St. Johns River and Table Rock at a great friend’s house on Toledo Bend. I was able to do a little practicing and get some things in the office accomplished and most importantly, relax and have a great time with friends. The bass at Toledo were just coming to the beds strong and I figured the fish at Table Rock were going to be in pre-spawn pattern. The cold weather conditions most of the country was experiencing were hanging on into these early spring months. I was excited to fish a highland reservoir that has some similarities to my home Lake Amistad. Table...... Read More

Off to a great start… I enter the third event of 2014 cashing 2 checks in the first 2 events! It had been 10 years since I fished the St. Johns River in Forida. and I was going to keep to my game plan of fishing a smaller specific area of a tournament venue to keep my practice simple. I was ready to make it 3 checks in a row! It is worth noting that Florida fishing in the spring time has been a major nemesis of mine throughout my entire career. I have cashed a few checks and had good events in Florida during the fall season… but this year I was determined to do the same in the spr...... Read More

The second tournament of my season, but first Elite Event, has a lot of meaning for me as this is the lake I fished my first ‘big’ event on, a BFL Regional back in 1999. It had been since then that I had visited Lake Seminole, but honestly not a whole lot had changed. I feel at home fishing grass lakes since I grew up fishing grass on the Potomac River and grass is typically present at Lake Amistad where I guide. I was pumped to get the Elite season underway!

Once again the calendar turns to January and we enter a New Year… 2014 is now upon us.
As I was enjoying the Holiday season I realized I need to make a change for 2014… Yep, that’s right a resolution for the New Year. I am hoping it will make for some improved performance in 2014 and ultimately make my year even more fun and rewarding. It’s a pretty simple resolution but generally very hard to keep… well, I guess most resolutions are.

My 2014 resolution is “Do my own thing”. I need to fight my own battles in 2014. Dock Talk is very addicting ...... Read More

A week or so off between the Lake St. Clair Elite event and my last tourney of the year at the Lake Erie Bassmaster Northern Open was a good thing. My wife and I again spent that week in Pittsburgh at my in-laws… almost as good as home in TX or VA. I was able to get some things accomplished on the business side of the industry and regroup. I did have some sense of good mojo going into this event as I finished my last day at St. Clair on a high note.I was ready to get back after those brown monsters!

After some disappointment at the St. Lawrence my wife Rhonda and I had a week break between events… we spent that time at my in-laws in Pittsburgh, PA. It is very nice to have a place like that to wind down from the event and get some work accomplished prior to the next one. Besides, my mother in-law is a great cook and I really feel relaxed when I am with my wife’s family. It’s almost as good as going home to Texas or being with my family in Virginia. The Saturday 2 days before the Detroit Elite event was to begin we made the short 5 hour drive to Detroit. I am rested and lo...... Read More

My wife Rhonda and I drove straight north for about 2 hours to get to the St. Lawrence River from Lake Oneida. I really like back-to-back tourneys especially when they tend to fish very similar. I get in tune much quicker in that 2nd event and in the Elite Series we have a limited practice period so that certainly helps.

After a few weeks in Texas it was great to get back out on the tournament road again. Most think us Pro-Anglers get to sit around the house while we aren’t fishing events but that is so far from the truth! During the 4 weeks I had ‘off’; I directed a 5 day youth fishing camp, flew to NY and pre-practiced 4 days for the St. Lawrence Elite Event coming in Aug, worked 4 days in Las Vegas for ‘Toray’ fishing line at ICAST and then got home just in time to do a few guide trips and get some office work done before departing for this last 4 tourney swing trip of the yea. ......

After the long drive to WI we got settled into our motel and I felt tired yet refreshed… you have lots of time to think during a 2 day drive. I was unable to do much research for this Elite event due to my tight schedule this spring but was feeling like this would fish to many of my strengths after hearing some talk of last year’s event and watching the Bassmaster’s TV show. Seeing all that grass made me believe I could fish as I did the Potomac River when I lived in Virginia. I was up early day 1 of practice and fired up to hit the reset button after last week’s James ...... Read More
