Lake Guntersville 2:10…day two of the NC, also the final day of the KBF Trail Championship. I am sitting at just under 80 inches, acutely aware that one decent upgrade will get me into the KBF Ten. I toss a Baby Bass Yamamoto Senko under a dock that I had pulled a bass from the day before; using a Zoom … Continue reading my KBF NC recap…and perspective
The move from my 20’s to my 30’s was a blur. Not because it happened so fast, but because I self-medicated with most legal/illegal/natural substances known at that time. The best I can remember, it was fun (say it often, glad there was no Facebook to document it!!)…but may contribute to why now in my 50’s I … Continue reading Torqeedo…resisted it for a while…
Some facts about my last tourney (and random stuff since): even the bear in my hotel saw the importance of masks and social distancing. I no longer write for Anglr…but I truly enjoyed the journey…it was an awesome year; you can still go catch up on all I did write; right here. Thanks to all who … Continue reading nothing of value…or educational…just cathartic release
First let me say that the Hobie PA14 with the 360 Mirage Drive handled the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania much better than its owner. Dodging in and out of exposed boulders, drifting over those just below the surface…then allowing me to flutter pedal in any direction to maintain motion in the swift waters; an … Continue reading The Susquehanna;or how not to hear what they tell ya!
Self-awareness is something I work hard to achieve. It is not easy. Even when my wife asked me last night if my choice was knowledge or Ego…I told her it was knowledge. I had caught over 90 inches in an hour and a half during pre-fishing. I just knew the fish would be there – … Continue reading Kentucky Lake – or how not to choose a launch…..
Today, I fished with the CAKFG. It is the “Cheatham” tourney; the lower boundary being Cheatham Dam. You would think with a name as great as that, I would love this event…but I loathe fishing the area. Every year I dread the tournament because I just do not enjoy fishing the waters above Cheatham Dam; … Continue reading Cheatham in Cheatham Lake…or how not to launch….
no fishing going on...stuck inside doing meetings....saw a facebook memory that got my attention though....so decided to kill a second...or two... On the anniversary of me being pulled from the stands of a high school softball game (twice), followed home by a county sheriff to meet with detectives after a SWAT team had swarmed … Continue reading Happy Anniversary!! to me…..
With the KBF event on Pickwick/Wilson/Wheeler postponed, I was all set to hook up with the West Tennessee Bass Yakker’s and fish their event on Pickwick Lake. I have said before what a great bunch those folks are so I knew it would be fun. That was on Tuesday. On Friday night, the Friday before … Continue reading Brussel Sprouts and Covid-19…not for me.
Back from the inaugural Huk Bassmaster Bass Nation Kayak Series powered by TourneyX and presented by Abu Garcia on Lake Logan Martin in Pell City, Alabama. And it was incredibly awesome to just be a part of it all! I am working on a more comprehensive recap about the guys who did well….but I wanted … Continue reading Oh Nuts! I almost missed the B.A.S.S event!
Bored….reading the new rules for Hobie BOS concerning boards while perusing the social media posts that, although I have been homebound for days, I seemed to have missed. My mind is saying STOP, SHUT UP, DON’T DO IT….but I have to talk about tournaments somehow…. ….So…here we go…against all reason…. I applaud Hobie … Continue reading Bored so let’s talk boards….should just shut up I know….but….too late…
