Life teaches some hard lessons. The sooner we can learn and apply these lessons, the better our lives will be. At least that is what I am teaching my kids. This weekend my son learned a very hard lesson. Not everyone gets a trophy.
I recently had the chance to catch up with Robert Field, President of Kayak Bass Series. Event #1 was in the books and I asked him to reflect on a few things to share about the event. Here is the interview and a video about the first stop in Astor, Florida.
With the weather acting schizophrenically, I've used the cold days to do a lot of reorganizing, rigging and prep for the upcoming tournament season. I'll only fish a handful of events but I want to at least make it worth the time and effort. Trying to figure out, by reading maps, old notes and revisiting way points has me trying…
When I was very young, I remember both of my grandfathers taking me fishing. Sometimes it was on their boats, sometimes it was on the bank and sometimes in a float tube. I learned to catch perch, crappie, catfish, bass and carp. I learned different techniques, about different lures, how to cast different reels and how to watch a line.
Tournaments aren't for everyone. Some people are burnt out while others like to keep competitive drive away from fishing. Wanting to understand better, I am lending my space today to JD Desrosiers to tell his story.
