I’m Back Baby

That’s right I am back blogging again.  For those of you who missed me thanks, for those of you who didn’t well I guess its ok.  For those of you that don’t know in May I graduated from Great Lakes Christian College.  The last few months were tuff and kept me from writing about bass fishing.  After graduation I needed a month to just sit back and chill out for a little while.

Well now I am back and ready to move forward.  So I want to talk about a few things that have happened in the time I have been away.

BassMaster Standings

I have to say I am really surprised by the standings for the Elite Series.  The one and only KVD is 12th, and there are a lot of guys buying for AOY who are not normally.  It’s great for the sport just unusual to see.

Cheating in Tournaments

A month or so ago there was a big to do about a guy cheating in a BFL event.  Each year there is some story about an angler caught cheating in a tournament.  I am sick of it, it needs to stop.  So here is what I propose.  If an angler is caught cheating he is not allowed to fish in any (I don’t care how small) tournament.  Also they should not be allowed to even get a fishing license.  Finally we make them wear a big red C on their clothing for CHEATER!  Ok the last part was over the top.

Shout out to Brandon P.

I want to congratulate Brandon Palaniuk on his win on Bull Shoals.  I have had the chance to talk with him about articles in the past and he is a great guy.  I am sure this is one of many wins to come.

 Long Lining

I am still not sure how I feel about the technique of long lining that Jeremy Starks used to win on Douglas Lake.  I think it is cool and it makes sense if you need to get a crankbait deep.  I get that it is within the B.A.S.S. rules, but it just doesn’t seem right. 

I will have some great product reviews coming soon.  I will be reviewing some reels from Abu Garcia, a Rick Clunn rod from Wright & McGill.  I have some great lures as well. 

So keep reading in the future.
