Back to Tuesday's Tips on Tuesday!

First I know it hasn't been an every week thing like I said I would aim for (yet). Having said that, I am excited for some upgrades coming which will allow me to post videos and images on the blog here soon so that might make it easy to do more of these.

Top 5 Finish on Arkansas River for BFL - Okie Divison

So this was an event that I decided to "Jackpot" since I fish the river at least once a week and figured I could cash a check and possibly get lucky and win. I registered just before we had torrential rains which flooded the drainage basins of the Arkansas River.

Tuesday's Tips on a Friday?

Guys & Gals my apologies. Competitive Fishing is a hobby for me - a very serious hobby, but a hobby nonetheless. I own and run a small business as my day gig and it has been brutal for several years. We've enjoyed huge growth, and had to survive some crazy things along the way.

Expanding on Efficiency

So last Tuesday I started my blog series and started off with a topic I think is absolutely critical to success in anything you do in life. That is the concept of efficiency. I touched upon several major categories of efficiency as it relates to fishing.

The 1st of many "Tips on Tuesday"

Well my past blogging has been, well... blah. I'm going to change that this year. To start, Anglerhub gives me the perfect format and makes it easy. I like easy. I like efficient. In fact, that's a great first topic for successful tournament fishing - efficiency!!!

Amped Up for FLW Costa on Grand Lake!

So Event #2 of the FLW Costa Southwest Division is quickly approaching and I'm starting to get more excited and nervous with each passing day! I love this charge of emotion and if you don't get this feeling leading up to a big event, then perhaps you should take up Frisbee golf!

Angler hub expense report

I just did my first expense report on angler hub. This report format is perfect. Easy fast and covers everything you need for a tournament angler. My opinion this is worth every penny. It's going to save me so much money at the accounting office when it's tax time.

Southside Hookers on Lake Hudson

This tournament was on March 19th, 2016 on Lake Hudson. The lake clarity is extremely muddy compared to normal and the fish are still in a bit of a funk due to clarity and the recent cold snap. Saturday morning was 29 degrees and ice forming everywhere on the boat, reels, and rod guides.

Trade shows are complete time to fish

I have got all the trade shows done.. time to hit the lake now. Too much time on the demo tank.


I fished the Tri county bass masters club event on patoka last sunday (3/13/2016). Personally it was the best day i have had on patoka since i have been fishing the lake. The water temp has quickly came up from a low 40 degree lake to a high 55-57 degree lake.

FLW COSTA on Sam Rayburn 2016

I went up and practiced for 4 days about 3 weeks prior to the tournament. Having never been on Sam Rayburn, I was intimidated by its size and diverse vegetation.

Costa FLW series Rayburn

Wow what a awesome lake! Five days of practice with 20-30 fish per day. A strong cold front came thru just before the tournament started and I was pretty confident these fish would move tighter to cover and that is exactly what they did.

Talk To Us!

Wow!  The positive comments and support from the community is humbling.  We've been in touch with so many Trail Directors and Tournament Anglers and the feedback has been awesome.
