Well so far so good….I guess lol This tournament season has been a serious grind! I am currently sitting in 49th place for angler of the year and need to get in the top 40 to qualify for the regional championship which was my goal at the beginning of the year. I have two more tournaments left….the 2day on Guntersville in September is worth double the points. I think I can make it but it will be a close one. If I stay consistent I think I will finish around 36th just sliding inside the cut. *Fingers crossed* I will be fishing on Weiss Lake in 2 weeks then off till September when we have our 2 day tournament. I appreciate you all keeping up with me through the year! I got to give a shout-out to all my sponsors as well….Wired2Fish, Tackle Doctors, BassOnTheLine.com, Go2Bait Company, Lews Reels, and Greg’s Custom Rods…..these guys make it all worth while and I greatly appreciate their help through the year!

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!

January/Early Feburary Fishing Report

February 23rd, 2012 Written By: Posted In: Fishing Reports

Fishing on the Coosa River has really started to pick up and its picking up fast!!! The water temps are really warming up nicely and the fish I have been catching are super fat! I really think that the water temps never got cold enough to pull the fish out to the main river this year and they have been feeding heavily in preparation for a winter that never showed up.  It will be really exciting to see what this years season holds because I can honestly say, there have been more big bass caught in my boat this January/February than ever before. Also, this is the mildest winter I ever remember and I think these two factors really go hand in hand.

The fish I have been targeting have been in creeks thus far and starting to get ready to bed. I have located several places where the surface water temperatures are in the low 60′s which is prime for catching some really big sacks of fish! Right now the evening bite seems to be more “on” than the early morning bite because the water warms up over the evening. I am targeting spawn migrations routes along creek channels. Anywhere a creek channel makes a sharp turn or has a different contour that bass can stop on and feed is where you will find them. Once you locate a school, my recent experience has proven they are hungry and stacked up! I am using crankbaits and jigs to put the big ones in the boat. I am currently working at the bassmaster classic with Wired2Fish, when I get home call me for an awesome trip on Lake Neely Henry. Let’s go chase some fat girls!!

Fishing Season In Full Swing

February 23rd, 2012 Written By: Posted In: Tournament News

Well its finally here! Fishing season has entered wide open mode and I sure hope it does not stop till November at the earliest! I have definitely earned a trophy for all the miles traveled in the last 7 days. It started Thursday when I left on a blazing path towards south Florida to hook up with my buddy Ronnie Seets and  his wife to spend a few days chasing them fat girl Florida bass. What was supposed to be a 9-10 hour trip down turned into 14hours, talk about exhausting! Traffic, weather, computer shut downs when I had to get license, ect…were key factors in that. Friday was spent on the Harris Chain of lakes which is an absolutely beautiful fishery! Such an extremely cool place to see and the fishing isn’t bad either! Then Saturday and Sunday we headed down to Okeechobee to try our luck out.

Monday morning I woke up and after a great breakfast headed out to take Mary Lynn home to Alabama. This time it only took 9hrs thankfully, that is a lot better! I arrived back at my house around 10pm Monday night and now as I type this I am in Shreveport, Louisiana working with Wired2Fish. I got into town about 5pm yesterday and we headed out at 6am this morning to see all the guy’s before their final practice day. “Dock Talk” says this classic may be a pretty tough one. Lot’s of different baits were on the decks of boats this morning, everything from frogs to jigs and crankbaits. One quote from Shaw Grigsby was “everything is changing so fast its really hard to tell what’s going to be right tomorrow”.  I can imagine that’s a pretty true statement for most of if not all the anglers. The practice day’s have been far from ideal, with rain, cold fronts and muddy water. The weather will be changing the majority of the tournament and as I say,” bass are either going into a transition, in a transition, or coming out of a transition”, and I think that will hold true for this tournament! It will be exciting one for sure!

If you want to keep up with everything this week check out the Wired2Fish Facebook Fan Page. I will be working with these guys all week to bring live updates from the classic. Its going to be super busy and a lot of great info for everyone!

Here are a few pics from the last few days:
