Just finished a tough prefish for Roosevelt. Tougher than I’ve ever seen it. Five keepers a day will be great! I like tough tourneys and will try to put 30 years of experience to use- I’m ready!!!!

Well, the Legend Cup at Pleasant was a fun , successful tournament and is now over! We had 31 boats, and great sponsors- Lucas Oil, Rigid Industries, Wright/McGill, R2S, Lucky Craft, Cabelas, Sportsmans and wave-away-Thank You!! Davis Hart and Bret Nagelhout won the cups-congrats! I committed a rookie mistake by not checking my power source for my borrowed boat an the second day, I had no troll motor early on and never caught em. Been waiting 3 months for my new motor- sure will be nice to finally get my new boat!!

Fished the ABA on Apache with partner Steve M, in the cold rain! It is the best lake by far in central AZ. We caught 18.85lbs on crankbaits and bumbershoots and had two about 5lbs apiece. Won the tournament so soaking all day in the rain was FUN! Now it’s time to get ready for the Legend cup out at Pleasant- should be tough, but I like it that way.

Wow, weird and tough bite at Pleasant! Fished thursday with Brian B and had about 17lbs of bass, one of my best days on that lake ever. Went back Saturday, and caught 4 for just under 10lbs, and missed a few more. Lost the tourney by about.7lbs! Had all 4 on bumbershoots by 10am and had till 3:30 to catch one more. Hit all my key spots and never had another bite! Oh well, got 2nd and big fish, but learned a valuable lesson for the upcoming Legend cup.

It was a tough day out at Roosevelt, we caught about 7 keepers and finished 8th place. I want to thank Mike and Mary Brillhart for the use of their boat! This weekend, I will be off to Sacramento for the ISE show, working for R2S and speaking on the Tank, always fun! I am putting together the Legends Cup, here in Arizona, the first pro-am put on by the fishermen of Arizona. More details to follow….

I am officially on team Lews! Got my new shipment of Lews rods and reels and used them today to place 3rd out at Pleasant today with partner Steve M. Caught most of them on my Bumbershoot with 2 rig runners on my 7.5 foot Team Lews rod and BB1. Later on the spoon bite picked up and turned out to be a great day.
