My final BASS entry for 2010! It’s been a quick and tough season for me. I started the season great day one at the Delta, and ended it well day 2 here. Today I had 15 plus, caught 15 keepers and even lost another over 5lbs! Everything worked today, jigs, cranks and worms, just real shallow 1 to 5ft deep. Tournament fishing is so humbling, when you see $10,000 just swim away. I want to thank all of you for reading my blogs, and I’ll do another for the US Open on lake Mead in July. Now, I’m heading home for fathers day with TJ and Amy! I will be working on new sponsorship for next year, so if any of you have any ideas or contacts for sponsors, it would be GREATLY appreciated!! That’s it for now, but check back for Lake Mead details.
3 bass for 8lbs! Not really sure what happened to my practice areas, but it was windy and those fish never bit. Still had a chance for a good bag, had one almost 6lbs jump off right at the boat, and lost quite a few others that I never saw. Just another poor day in a poor year, trying to get it all out of my system, so I can get back to catching them!
Shallow, thats all I can say about Ft Gibson. The lake has deep water, but the fish only seem to live in the first 10 ft of it. I caught 5 or 6 keepers, up to about 3.5 lbs, mostly on jigs and worms. I’ll keep prefishing tomorrow, I think it will take about 15lbs a day to make a check. Should be fun!!
After prefishing for two days, they have moved our tourney from the Arkansas river to Ft, Gibson lake, due to the Ok flooding. Fine by me, I really didn’t find much. Now just one day to prefish, so we’ll see tomorrow what’s in store!
This one is a huge disappointment, I really felt like I knew how to fish this lake, but never figured out the big ones. Caught over 50 today with about 7 keepers. In the last 10 minutes, I saw a nice bass try to eat a blackbird way up shallow, I threw the only small crank that I had on, and caught it, my biggest fish, about 3.5lbs. I did not fish shallow enough in this tourney, and it cost me. This is a great lake to visit, if you want to catch a lot of bass, just harder to find the bigger ones. We are off to Oklahoma for the last event, then back to AZ, and fish some western events and regroup. I’ll let you know how OK, looks in a few days, thanks for reading!!!!
