Amateur Tournament Blog

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys/gals,

I got an idea from a member in my bassmasters club to start a blog. Typically, I'm not the "blogging" type, but I think this is a great way for me to document my own experiences, as most serious fishermen keep a log of some form. Also, I think this info may be useful for those thinking about joining a club or getting started in tournament fishing. I was always under the impression that you had to have the best boat, best(highest priced) gear, and a wealth of bass knowledge known only to those marine biologists. Feel free to peruse my site and add personal experience comments or topic suggestions to make my blog an even better learning experience for myself and others. In no way am I trying to act as an expert, just thought it may be fun and useful. Also, look for topics concerning specific lures and techniques that I experiment with throughout the season.

Thanks in advance for any support. I'm still in the beginning stages of learning certain aspects of the templates, so bear with me if my site changes frequently. Any suggestions to make it more user friendly would be great too!

You can find the address in my signature.

Thanks.

    • Well this warm winter should help out this coming year pretty well.
    • Well, today was both awesome and extremely disappointing. We hadn't been hunting my pintail, wigeon and mottled duck spot because I had heard it got beat up pretty bad over the weekend and I wanted to let it rest for a few days & build some birds back up. Got all set up & had enough pintails work to make it interesting, but the wigeon were pretty much a no-show. The majority of the pins (a couple thousand!) landed to the west about 1/2 mile away in an area I've never seen birds work. Buddy shot one, and we had a flock of 8 buzz us while we were picking dekes (as they always do). On the plus side, we were only 1 bird short of our pintail limit (2 hens didn't make the pic) and 2 of them shot their first pintail. One guy that has been hunting for 25 years shot 2 gorgeous pins that are wall bound, the other guy that shot his firsts got a drake and a hen. All had sprigs but some were pulled before the pic to save for mounting as we didn't want them to get broken during transport. Also not pictured are 2 drake shovelers and a drake and hen red. All in all a slow day but my buds were ecstatic. Tomorrow, we head to a lake that I've never hunted but has had a lot of cinnamon teal (as well as bwt, gwt, wigeon, gads, fulvous and whistling ducks, pins and mallards) shot out of it this year. Wish us luck!!
