It’s been quite a while since my last post, mainly because Anne and I were asked to do blogs for Chevrolet throughout the 2010 season. I can say it has been a very busy year, but its finally beginning to wind down a little with only 3 events remaining. I have two tournaments in Texas and then wrap up the year in Missouri on Table Rock Lake.
The next event is a PAA Series on Lake Tawakoni, I place I’ve never heard of and know absolutely nothing about. After that we have two weeks off before the Texas Toyota Bass Classic on Lake Conroe, that one I do know something about, lol. We’re not real sure what we are doing between those two events yet, probably coming home though. I really wish these things were routed better, what a pain these last three are going to be. We’ve decided not to take the camper though because of the distance and all the miles. Anne made reservations at cabins for all of them, so it will be nice to all travel together at least.
I haven’t really had a monumental moment yet this year, but have cashed a good check in everything I’ve fished, so I’m happy with that. Don’t get me wrong, I still want to whack one out of the park though and I can’t wait to go for it in these final three derbies. I really like going to new places, so Tawakoni is one I definitely look forward to fishing.
A couple new baits on the sponsor front…first the new Rapala Crankin Rap. It kind of resembles a Wiggle Wart a little, but not really, lol. It is going to be a big hit for sure. I also got to try another prototype bait that Storm will be coming out with soon (hopefully). I wanted to keep it because I feel it would have helped me at the Cup, but supposedly it was the only one that exsisted on this Earth, so I had to send her back. I can’t wait to get my hands on them for next season anyway. I’ll let you know when I can at least tell you what it is.
The new Kinami Bug is finally out, it’s named after me..yay! It’s called the D-Bug and I’ve already been catching them on it like crazy. I’ve always said that when it’s tough you can’t beat the Bug, and now it’s even better so make sure you check them out at a tackle store near you. Kinami also has a fluke type bait in the wings that I promise will be a must have. Not sure what it will be named (maybe the D-Shad, lol), but I used them at Norman and it has qualities none of the others have for sure. By far the best soft jerk bait ever!
I just finished up shooting the video for the Tabu Jigs, which will be available at Cabela’s hopefully soon. The sales of the Tiny Tim have been great at Cabela’s thus far, so we’re hoping the jig has the same results.
We have been spending most of our free time with my Grandma. She just got out of the hospital again for an infection and a little pneumonia. She’s in a home in Erie and has family with her almost all the time. She and Gramps have a lot to do with my success, they are the kind of people dreamers like me need to have in our lives in the beginning, rough times, ya know. Please add them to your prayer list.
Well Mitchell and I are going frog fishing.
God is so good!
