Where we are now; and I’d appreciate help
Well, as you might guess, I’m frustrated with what was my worst season in years - No, wait … I’d say it was my worst season ever. In one respect, I’m kind of looking forward to taking a short break. I’d like to get my mind wrapped around what went wrong, so it won’t ever happen again.
At the same time, I’m ready to start fishing again. Sometimes you just have to work you way through tough stretches. I know a lot of people that read these blog entries have told me that they fish tournaments. So I would guess a lot of you know what I’m feeling right now. You just don’t want to sit around too long.
So here’s my plan.
I’ve decided I’m going to take one more shot at the Bassmaster Classic. I can do that by fishing the BASS Northern Open series. One of those tournaments is on Lake Erie at Sandusky, Ohio. Another is at Oneida. I’ve done well at both of those locations in the past. … If I could get a first place in one of the Open events, I could get back to the Classic for the sixth straight year. Otherwise, I’ll be at the Classic, but you’ll find me on the exhibition floor.
So here’s Part 2 of my plan. Even though I had a lousy season, with the exception of the Bassmaster Classic, I’d like to keep fishing. … So I’d like to ask for your help. The final two events will take four anglers from fans’ votes. If you feel inclined to do so, I’d appreciate it if you would vote for me to take part in the last two events. You can go to the Bassmaster.com site and look for the Toyota ad. You get to vote for one angler from each region. I’m in the Region 3 group.
Thanks for your interest in this page and thanks for thinking about voting for me.
