…and the winner is….us!

Since I have written my pity post talking about my performance at the 2019 KBF National Championship in Shreveport/Bossier Louisiana, I will not rehash that at all.  I developed a solid pattern; launch, fish, come back empty handed – it just wasn’t a winning pattern.  (stole that line, think it was a Ron Himmelhaver quote) … Continue reading …and the winner is….us!

Ketch me if you can…..

So….I know it is Thursday because I have been counting the days until I leave for Shreveport and the KBF National Championship (tomorrow!)….but for me, it is Westbrook Wednesday part Two! Now I am not going to lie, I had no idea what a Westbrook Wednesday was until I met Scott Beutjer at Bienville; a … Continue reading Ketch me if you can…..

Not ready for prime time….

I wish I could say I am satisfied that I finished in the top ten of our clubs season opener, finally ending a skunkfest that had me considering the end of my kayak tournament career.  But when you only catch a single measurable fish (or when I do anyway), it feels a bit disappointing.

…..no……

The child in me wants to say "NO....LEAVE ME ALONE!" so I don't have to talk about the first tourney of 2019. The KBF Tenvitational sponsored by Dee Zee. And technically, I don't have to share at all....I do control the typing after all...but, I am not six...and I can't pretend I wasn't here... Bienville....day … Continue reading …..no……

2019….let’s do this…

The Nissan has just shy of 120,00 miles; almost 30,000 of those miles came from last year. It definitely does not have that new truck smell - more like fish slime and dirty clothes mixed together. The R-Pod, our camper, has new tires and a new fender; the old fender blew off when the tire … Continue reading 2019….let’s do this…
