Hello fishing fans,
I hope everyone is doing well. I have been practicing hard for the upcoming fishing season. With our first Alabama Bass Trail Tournament in the books, I can say I bombed out. With a great practice day on Friday, I was excited to fish the tournament on Saturday. Fright night the temperature dropped. It stayed cloudy and rained the entire time we were fishing Saturday. I’m not trying to make excuses, but we weren’t prepared for the different weather. Fishing is just like any other sport. You have to practice! If you haven’t shot a free throw for 3 or 4 weeks, odds are you might not make very many. Fishing is the same. In order to be good, you have to practice. I know my son Gavin would spend hours with a fishing pole, a jig, and a 5-gallon bucket practicing flipping that jig in that bucket. But all that practice paid off for him. He can flip a jib anywhere he wants to and put it anywhere he wants under a boat dock.
As most of you know, I am a bass freak, so I want to give you a little tip. When targeting bass, look for subtle changes in the shoreline, water clarity, temperature, or bottom composition. Water movement is also a good tip. All of these things can help you find that big bass you are looking for.
I want to give a big shout out to the Holly Pond Fishing Team. I hear they did really well at their last tournament at Lake Martin. Congratulations to everyone! To be the best fisherman you can be and to continue to improve, you have to fish hard and fish often.
Good luck and tight lines to everyone,
