Wonder if he’ll wear a bowtie to this one too…. #Chevy
Fishin’ in a lot of pain stinks. Hope he has a good ’18.
5. Check MLFer Scotty Ashmore’s ‘lectronical setup.
That’s how you watch the Super Bowl and fish at the same time yo hahaha wow!
6. CA: Lookit this limit!!
Check T-Roy Lindner (right) and Derrek Stewart’s 28.55 limit (7-lb kicker) from a Diamond Valley Lake (aka DVL) derby:
May be the heaviest DVL limit in 3-ish years. Troy be sayin’:
> …after only having only two small bass by 10am with a 2:45pm weigh-in time, instead of slowing down, we sped up. Covering as much water effectively and as many spots as we could.
> Running and gunning main-lake points and any back pockets with lots of flooded brush. Main-lake points were the key. Using small to medium finesse baits on light line, if the bass swam out of the trees you could land them. If they stayed in the trees and brush, you didn’t have a chance.
> A big factor was the Ultrex on Derek’s boat to hold us over key spots.
Ugh not the Ultrex again! I’m now officially like that dang otter:
7. TX: Livingston, Georgetown infested with zebras.
8. AR wants your Christmas trees.
9. Gitcha Bass U stocking-stuffer bonus…
…when you sign up before the 18th. As I always say, WELL WORTH your hard-earned cash. Seriously, if you haven’t been you owe it to yourself to go.
Here’s the line-up of shady bassin’ gang members that’ll be a-speakin’ at ’em in Jan: Ike, Cajun Baby, Mista Missile, Turtle (Lowen), Suggs, Z, The Idaho Kid, No Red Undies (McClelland), Otter, Jamie Hartman (lol), Skeet, J-Mo, Boom Boom, Christie, J-Lee, Capt Donuts.
Just tell the Mrs. or gf you’re hanging with that crew and see what kinda look you get lol.
10. FL: Bass Pro Shops coming to Okeechobee?
11. MN: First Gander Outdoors store opened yesterday.
From the bones of Gander Mountain:
> …reportedly will open 15-20 Gander Outdoors stores by sometime in March, depending on lease negotiations, and 40-45 stores later in the year….
12. Would you flip these colors?
New company, Champion Jigs. Can’t comment on the jigs because I haven’t seen ’em in person, but how ’bout these colors — L to R they’re “puke,” “tomato seed” and “freedom craw.” Love the names…would you fish those colors?
13. Is Deeper killing it?
This is the portable bobber-looking sonar deal:
> The Lithuanian business has become the first from the Baltic States to be included by Deloitte Global among the top 10 fastest-growing technology companies in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Deeper was named #8…after recording a 7,048% increase.
Also says on its website that it’s “America’s No.1 Portable Fish Finder for shore, ice and boat fishing.” Hmmm. Let me know if you own one, tried one, would want one. Just curious.
14. Big Rock distributors planning big announcements.
> …improvements to the shows, a major expansion in the company’s fundraising efforts and a new ‘cutting-edge’ tool to streamline customer ordering.
15. MA: Animal rights nut implies ‘abuse’ by angler in swan death.
Swan had a treble hook in its mouth, had to be put down. Check this sentence:
> Halpin said he has no information about people intentionally hurting swans in MA, but said animal abuse by an angler is also a possibility for how a bird could be hooked.
So…no information, but a fictional angry angler who hates swans could do something one day. C’mon man. Can’t we all just get along?
