Bass Opener Outing

Josh Douglas & I headed out to one of our favorite south metro bass lakes, we were on the water around 7:30am, just after the rain had passed. We also brought along Greg, as he had a camera and were hoping to shoot some video footage of fish catches. We also decided to impose a challenge on ourselves. We had a goal of trying...

Bassmaster Weekend Series National Championship - Days 1 & 2

Time was running a bit short, so I ran to my area in Bussey Recreation area. I tried the crankbait there and then went back to flipping. I missed one bite and then lost about a 1.5lb fish next to the boat that I saw. It was soon time to go, tried cranking near the check in and caught a small perch. Show More Summary

More Blogging!

Actually you may have noticed a slight decline in activity on this blog, partly because I have been commissioned to provide content for a new blog for If you head on over to the Versus Country site, you will find a Bassin' Insider Blog that I am writing for them. ...

Bassmaster Weekend Series National Championship - Practice

My buddy Billy Harris and I fished Hartwell the last day of off limits as we had read & heard that the lake fished similar to that of Clarks Hill and they both had healthy populations of Blueback Herring. We also decided to have a friendly little tournament.....

Mississippi River - Pool 2 - Club Tournament #1 - May 17, 2009

Sunday was my first club tournament of this year on Pool 2 of the Mississippi River. Because this is a special regulation continuous catch & release body of water, our tournament is a paper ournament, where we measure the length of the fish, have our partners verify the length and then convert to pounds back at the landing.

Setting a FLW Fantasy Fishing Lineup for Beaver Lake

Beaver Lake is a staple in the FLW Tour schedule. This lake is known for huge numbers of fish, but not always very big. One cool thing, is anglers get to fish for the trifecta, as all 3 bass species are present. Water is reported about 6-8ft high for this tournament, but very clear. Type of water: highland impoundment of White River Surface acres: 28,370 acres ...

Still Alive

Looking for Basstrix Paddle Tail Tubes?

Right now the Basstrix Paddle Tail Tube is the hottest thing around and hardly anyone can get their hands on any, I have heard they are going for $20 a pack on eBay right now. If you have not seen them, this is what they look like. Some online retailers carry them, but nearly all of them are backordered and are not taking new orders. Show More Summary

Raining 4 pounders!

The short term forecast for Gadsden, AL is continued downpour of 4lb and bigger bass. To put it simply, the fishing is out of this world right now at Lake Guntersville. The weights are unbelievable!!

Mississippi River - Bassmasters Weekend Series Tournament #5 - Day 2- Oct 7th, 2007

We were all by ourselves when we got to this little rock point. We fished it hard with topwater. I was able to catch two nice keepers on a Yellow Magic. I then hooked a 3lb plus smallie on a bone colored Barely Legal Vixen, but I horsed it a bit near the boat and he got off. About 5 minutes later.......

Setting an ESPN Fantasy Fishing Line-up for Lake Guntersville

Guntersville is one of the all time bass factories that Bassmasters stops at. This time of year, there are a lot of different bites going on. A few fish are still moving up, so staging and sight fish can probably be a part of someone's bags, but most of the fish are wadding up in post spawn areas or looking to gorge on the shad spawn bite that should be in full swing. ...

Mississippi River - Bassmasters Weekend Series Tournament #5 - Day 1- Oct 6th, 2007

Since I got a late draw, I knew if anyone was going to go to my starting area there was no way to beat them, so we started on a quick main river rock area for about 15 minutes, caught a 13" smallie on topwater and that was it.

Mississippi River Pool 2 Redemption - Club Tournament Practice

A complete 180 occurred this past Saturday on Pool 2. In short, John Haynes & I were each able to bag a nice limit on the very same body of water that skunked me the weekend before. I personally believe it had to do with location, we fished many of the same lures & techniques, conditions were pretty similar but the scenery had changed....

Strike King Sexy Shad!

I was suprised to see in my latest BassProShops catalouge, they were advertising the heck of the Sexy Shad crankbaits in both diving baits and the Wild Eye Shad.

ima Emailer ~ April 2009

April 2009 Issue - The IMA EMAILER brings you news from IMA pro staff members across the USA and worldwide. Anglers everywhere experience down cycles on their favorite waterways. Maybe a drought or other inclement weather conditions cause the fish population to be less than abundant. Or perhaps a shad die-off or a couple of poor spawns have limited the number of fish that...

Gopher Bassmasters Fall Classic - Coon Lake - September 23, 2007

Its been a few years since I have fished Coon Lake, but I have had my share of success there. I figured we could run and gun until we got on a pattern and I knew the lake well enough to keep it going from there. I drew Ron Smith, he lives close to the lake, so we met at the landing.
