I'm looking forward to a great year out on the water. I'll be fishing the EverStart Series Southeast division and picking up another tournament or two along the way. I am thankful for the opportunity to pursue my dream and look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead. A special thanks to all my sponsors both on and off the water.

If you’ve ever picked ice from your rod guides, if you’ve ever pried Vienna sausages from juice that was more solid than liquid, if you’ve ever ignored the warning on a package of hand warmers and put them in creative places for fear you might lose life or limb, then you’ve probably spent a cold day or two in a bass boat.
And if you’ve bass fished in the extreme cold, then you’ve likely thrown a couple of wintertime classics –jerkbaits and finesse crankbaits. Few lures have the ability to tempt lethargic bass in the dead of winter to open up and say ahh like these two. But there are some subtle differences that set these techniques apart from one another. > see more at FLWOutdoors.com.

I like to reminisce from time to time. Most fishermen do. I think back to some of my most memorable moments spent on the water. Growing up fishing with my dad. Some have stuck with me on account of a big fish catch. Others were just great days on the water. All, however, involved one thing for certain—a fishing lure.
Some bait or another was a part of each and every memory. I can think back to a plethora of past plastics and hard baits that I haven’t laid eyes on in years. I remember every color, texture and smell.
Baits that I grew up fishing. Baits that brought in thousands of pounds of fish, or so I like to remember. Everyone who has fished a large portion of his or her life has baits like these. Memories from one manufacturer or another. > see more at Wired2Fish.com.

There are few places on earth as densely populated with giant spotted bass as the Black Warrior River. I grew up fishing the Coosa River and can attest first-hand to the ferocity that lies in store each time you hook into a Coosa Spot. However, the more I come in contact with the Black Warrior, the more impressed I am with just how mean and big its spotted bass can be.
Coosa Spots, as violent and plentiful as they are, can’t compare to the spotted bass fishery found in the Black Warrior River, in strength or in number. There are several contributing factors to what sets the Black Warrior apart, but the dominant key has to be an abundance of current.
A part of the largest watershed encompassed entirely in the state of Alabama, the Black Warrior is charged by numerous feeder creeks and some of the most nutrient-rich runoff in the country. This nutrient-packed, ever-moving water is like a lifetime supply of protein bars and a gym membership for every bass in the fishery. > see more at AONMag.com.
