Thankfully, the bite has started picking up again and I have been graphing...

  Lake Fork Report—September 7, 2011 After the hot and dry summer, the recent cooling trend will speed along the fall patterns. Fall typically means fast action in the shallows for numbers of fish on moving baits like spinnerbaits and crankbaits and I always look forward to the change of pace. T...

The fishing on Guntersville the last few weeks has been really good. You have to work at it and might fish alot of areas with little success but when you find them it's fast and furious.

Lamenting the lost...three words that most accurately describe my fishing at the PAA All-Star Event on Lake Ray Hubbard.  Day one of the event was actually a good day of fishing, I generated a good number of keeper bites, it was my execution, or should I say my poor level of execution that put a sev...

The 2011 PAA tour kicks off tomorrow on Georgia's Lake Lanier.  Practice has been tough, at least for me it has been.  I was able to generate a few quality bites yesterday, so I'm a little encouraged by that.  I expect that there will be some decent weights brought to the scales, but as of right now...
