Atchafalya and Red River Recap

These past two months have been the busiest I can remember; I had five events in that time span to close out the 2016 season.  Since then, I’ve been kind of winding it down.  I got to watch a great World Series and now I’m in Kansas for my annual deer hunt.  Before we know it, it’ll be Thanksgiving, Christmas, and a new fishing season.


A Chance to Do Something Special on the Red

Posted by stephen on September 28, 2016


We’re just about ready to kick off the second Bassmaster Central Open at the Red River tomorrow and that means a couple things; the first is having the chance for a back to back to back win on the Red.  This river system has been very good to me in the past and I feel like I have a chance to do well every time we come here.  The other story for this week is the opportunity to make the Classic.  With the Elite Season over and two Central Opens left we are still very much alive in the hunt for a Classic berth and what better place to start than the Red.

Take a Vet Fishing

Official practice in LaCrosse, Wisconsin has started and this is the final event of the regular Elite Series season.  I left early on Saturday morning after sticking around Friday to see my son’s golf tournament.  I’m proud of him, he’s in ninth grade this year and made his high school team.  The two of us had been doing a lot of golfing in between our event at the Potomac River and now.  


Way to go Beau

I couldn’t be more proud after finishing up our week in Mylan, Tennessee.  My son Beau and his partner McCoy won the Junior Bassmaster Championship yesterday on Carroll County Lake.  We arrived late last Friday after driving through a storm.  The boys were excited and bouncing off the walls when we got there, but they were ready to fish.  Last year they struggled at the tough fishery, so it’s that much more gratifying for them to get the win this go round.


Climbing Back into AOY Post Season Contention

We’re back in Hot Springs after a few weeks on the road that ended well at Cayuga.  The past few days I’ve been running around like a mad man trying to get everything back together while still enjoying some time with the family.  I hope everyone had a great 4th.  The wife and I met up with some couples we hang out with and played some golf which was a good time.  We also spent some time over the weekend dobbing and bobbing around on the lake near home.  Hot Springs becomes a mad house around the 4th so we try to stay away at the most crowded times.
