Mary May with a healthy bass from a small local river....
A 4.5-5 lber from a local creek
4-4.5 lber from one of my favorite flows!
Another sweet fish for Mary May
She is starting to get deadly with a plastic worm!
Her first case of raw thumb....hopefully many more to come!
A couple awesome things have happened off the water as well. First, is that I was contacted by Paul Lebowitz, the editor at Kayak Angler Magazine, to write part of a story about spring bass fishing in the southeast. It took me completely by suprise and was a real honor, since KAM is probably the biggest kayak fishing publication out there. I will collaborating with a number of other top kayak bass fishermen including Drew Gregory and Jason Stutts. The article comes out in the spring, so keep an eye out for my contribution and hopefully a photo!
Second, Mary May and I are getting a puppy! Yep, we are taking that plunge and welcoming a cute little shih-tzu into our home. We are naming him Huckleberry....Huck for short. Some of you probably know that I have a 7 year old dog, Brewer, who is a golden retriever-chow mix. So you can imagine, I wasn't sold at first on the idea of a small dog. But the shih-tzu breed really grew on me and I can't wait to bring him home. We get to pick him up during the first week of December!
This weekend I will be joining Bill Kohls to fish a bass boat tournament. It should be an absolute blast, as fishing with Bill usually is. I can't believe crappie season is just around the corner, so I hope everyone is landing bass while they still can. Tight lines!
