After a long time off from fishing due to work, finally got back on the water with my son. We caught close to 30 fish with this being his best one. Lake Niconiche ...more was good to us.
First round Bass Champs East is in the books on big Sam Rayburn. 420 boats is a lot of boats for a tournament and I believe that it set the record for Bass Champs. ...more I was boat number 288 so I had a pretty good wait before I could take off and get out to start fishing. I did not do as well as I had wanted to but did have a decent day. Not in the money but not bad. Here is a pic of waiting to take off after the prayer and before the national anthem. You cant see all of the boats as the camera couldn't shoot that far.
Ready for 2nd round at Toledo Bend in February.
It is getting close to Bass Champs East series and I am excited to to announce one of my newest sponsors for the 2017 season, Lazyman Hooks. As you know, there are ...more a couple of their pro staffers on here regularly. The folks at Lazyman are a great group of people and put out a fine product. I also have a rod company that I am talking with and hope to secure that sponsorship soon.
Anyway guys, wish me luck on the first event of the season coming up. I am pretty excited about this year and will be fishing against some pretty dang good fishermen.
It's official, I am going pro. I picked up 3 new sponsors this week. Thanks to Whataburger for the free ketchup, Taco Bell for the free taco sauce and yes Bass ...more Pro Shop for the free membership.
I am on my way fellas.
I always hear about showing the fish something new so I have decided to go get some of my old boxes and re-charge some of my old lures. I am going with the pink ...more Hell Bender, Hula Popper, Jitterbug and I found a couple of old Billy Bass lures in the pile. I found some old stick baits that I don't even remember what the heck they were called but I am going the throw some of things and see if I cant dredge up a double digit this spring. I figure that the older fish will remember what they are and bite them just for ole times sake.
And by the way, Merry Christmas Y'all.
I have found that the BassCashBash that is held on Toledo Bend every year from May to September is also going to on Sam Rayburn for 2017 from January through April. ...more If any of you guys fish Rayburn, be sure and enter this. It is a pi$$er to catch one of these fish and not be registered. You can check it out here at www.basscashbash.com
