2013 Fishing Season Kicked Off

February 24th, 2013 Written By: Posted In: Tournament News

Well it has been quite some time since I have wrote a blog. My life has been nuts since last year! Everything from living in Oklahoma for a time, to getting married, then back to Alabama and now here we are at a great fishing season ahead of us! I will be fishing the BASS Weekend Series this year as a boater and our 1st tournament is March 9th. Our schedule is pretty wide open
Neely Henry-May
Weiss- June
Guntersville 2day- September

I have to give a major shout-out to all the folks who are my current sponsors! Go2bait Company, Tackle doctor spinnerbaits, topwater clothing, lews reels, and Greg’s custom rods. Without these people I couldn’t afford to fish lol They all make great products that I am proud to introduce to guide customers and fellow tournament anglers both! I appreciate you all following me this year. Make sure to join my fan page and get in on the action!

Heading to Santee Cooper for BASS Weekend Series Nationals

November 2nd, 2011 Written By: Posted In: Tournament News

First off, I want to say a HUGE thanks for visiting my site! This is the first blog update since the new webdesign and feel free to check out all the links and sign the guestbook. This year has been a fun and exciting year for sure! It started out on Guntersville in Feb. and THANKFULLY still has not ended! I fished the BASS Weekend Series trail this year and had a very average season getting limits in all the regular season tournaments. Come time for our division championship on Guntersville I was ranked 19th for angler of the year and looked like I would easily punch a ticket to the Regional Championship by finishing in the top 40 for angler of the year. Well, as a lot of my friends know….the “Guntersville curse” hit me, as it often does! For some reason that lake “has my number” and its a bad number for sure. I ended up getting a big fat goose egg for two solid day! So all the way home I was absolutely on edge! I didn’t know if I would make the top 40 cut or not since this was a double points tournament. Well, luckily I was able to squeeze in at 38th place and was very excited! I set out the year to make it to that tournament and did so!

The regional championship this year was on the Mobile Delta, I had not ever fished tidal water and due to my school schedule was unable to practice fish. As I pulled up to the boat ramp for our pre-tournament meeting, I seen a dolphin, and obviously I thought to myself “what am I getting into” and said a little prayer. I KNEW my first day on the Delta would be one epic experience but was just happy to be there. After the first day I got a limit which I didn’t think was very much and surprisingly I was in 6th place at the end of the day! I was pretty shocked to say the least, here it is, 1st day on the water and I am in 6th place. So on day 2 I knew I would be staying further south than day 1. Fishing was tough, the wind picked up and I couldn’t get anything going. I was throwing the same baits as day 1 and the fish just was not eating….time passed….and passed….nothing….no bites….finally at 1pm, just 2hrs before weigh-in I started getting pretty shook, here I am, 6th place, and I haven’t got one single fish. “Don’t drop the ball now” was exactly what I was thinking, suddenly I felt something on my spinnerbait, a BLUE CRAB….oh yes that’s when a light bulb as bright as the sun went off in my head, panic mode, beast mode and rockstar mode all kicked in at once lol and as well as a “thank you Lord”. What I had done was stay to close to the saltwater and I wasn’t fishing with their forage, ever heard the term “match the hatch” well I tied on a shrimp imitation bait! 1st two cast I landed stripe, so I knew I was fishing with what they wanted, I went on to land not 1…not 2…but 10!!! Keepers in the last dying moments of the tournament and ended up the day in 6th place! Talk about a train wreck! lol

So, now I am qualified for the National Championship and will be heading to Santee Cooper in South Carolin to fish next week. I will leave on Monday morning, pre-fish Tues, and then the tournament last Wed-Sat with only the top 25 fishing on Saturday. So as you can tell, my tournament season has taken a huge up swing the last couple months and I am greatly looking forward to heading north next week! Thanks for following me and hopefully I will have to GET THE NET!! Next week because I have BIG FISH ON!
