Weiss Lake Bassmaster Weekend Series

April 15th, 2012 Written By: Posted In: Tournament News

Well its Sunday and I just got out of church. I had an absolutely awesome day of fishing yesterday, talk about a blast! I was sitting at home watching TV Friday and my phone rings, the weekend series event on Weiss Lake needed some anglers and wanted to know if I would be interested in fishing. Well, I never turn down the opportunity to fish a tournament so I told them to sign me up. I honestly didn’t really know what to expect because I haven’t seen Weiss Lake in a year but the Coosa River fishes a lot alike on most of the lakes. So I decided to stick with a Neely Henry pattern and try it on Weiss Lake. Thankfully my grandfather showed me some places a few years ago and we won a tournament there so I had an idea of the general area I would be wanting to go.

The day started off extremely productive and I was able to start culling by 8am and the places I fished with my grandfather were slam loaded with big ol’ fat girl spots! Every single fish I caught was on the Go2Bait 4.5 Shaky Worm in Watermelon Candy color on a Tackle Dr. jig head. I ended up the day in 7th place, not to bad for a “spur of the moment” tournament. A big part of my success was also because of Greg’s Custom Rods , Trilene 100% Fluro, and my Lews Reels It was EXTREMELY windy yesterday and thanks to the sensitivity of Greg’s Rods and the 100% Fluro¬† I was able to stick to my finesse fishing pattern unlike a lot of guys and keep putting fish in the boat! I was also using the high speed Lews Reel so that when them fish hit I could reel the slack out and get a hook in them quick before they dropped my worm.¬† I can’t begin to tell you how vital that was yesterday!

Thanks everyone for all the support and give me a call, lets go chase fat girls together!

2011 – Halfway Through the Season

October 6th, 2011 Written By: Posted In: Tournament News

Hey everyone,

Just a quick update on what’s going on right now. I have had a great year! Fishing on Neely has been outstanding no matter what people say! I have heard rumor of “Neely going downhill” Well, the 7+lbr I caught a couple weeks ago sure did not get the notice lol!! I caught it with Alabama Outdoor News magazine crew, that’s amazing to catch such a healthy fish in mid August! Absolutely beautiful fish! So…NO NEELY IS ALIVE AND WELL!!! I am sitting in 19th place on the BASS Weekend Series trail and have the division Championship coming up. FROG WILL BE ON!! Thats a great time of year and I am looing forward to it! If I stay in the top 40, which I have done the “points math” and even if I zero both days I still would probably wake it, then I will be heading to the Regional Championship in Mobile. This will be my 1st one to attend since I have never fished the Weekend Series trail completely though the year. So it will be a fun time! I have got to say the support from sponsors, friends, and family this year has been amazing!! Everyone on my team rocks for sure!
