FLW- Mississippi River Day 2

I had a much better day today, I fished clean catching 11-5 finishing the tournament with 16-8. I look forward to coming back to Oklahoma (825 miles).

FLW – Mississippi River Day 1

I didn’t fish real clean today weighing in at 5-3. The weather was tough, but I felt good and fished hard all day. I’m boat 149 and weigh in at 5 tomorrow. 

Mississippi River Practice Update

I found some fish in somewhat of a community hole and it’s a spawning flat. It’s grass fishing and that’s the type of fishing I enjoy. I’m boat 12 and weigh in at 3.

I rely on the best, and the @cabelas X900 AGM battery is the best made. I'll be headed to LaCrosse, WI this next week for an FLW Tour event and get you an update from there. #teamcabelas #x900

Beaver Lake – Day 2

I caught three fish again today. I enjoyed this trip and now I’m looking forward to turkey hunting with my friends in western Oklahoma tomorrow. 

Beaver Lake – Day 1

Since I’ve missed tournaments this year my fish today wouldn’t have helped me in the standings so I chose not to weigh in the three that I had. I had a number of bites to have done well. I’m boat 45 tomorrow and I’ll weigh in at 3:30. 

Beaver Lake Practice Update

I’ve fished this lake for 18 years and I’ve had a degree of success here. I caught several nice fish each day during practice, but I’m concerned with the heavy rainfall we’ve had last night and today. It should take 12lbs a day to do decent. I’m boat 117 and I have a long day tomorrow weighing in at 4:30. Check out flw.com for live weigh ins or check back in here for results. 

FLW – Lake Cumberland Day 2

I had a tough first day, today was uneventful. I fished in Beaver Creek for the tournament, but I had Beaver Lake in Arkansas on my mind. I’ll be fishing there in two weeks. It’s an event I always look forward to. 

FLW- Lake Cumberland Day 1

 It was a 30/30 day, the wind blew 30mph and the weather was in the 30’s. It never stopped raining but thank God for my new Cabelas Guidewear. There’s only two groups of people in this tournament: the ones with Guidewear and one without it. I didn’t fish clean today, dropped a few, and weighed in two at 4lbs. The weather tomorrow will bearable.
