Always makes me physically ill to read this stuff. Pls be careful out there….
2. Jesse Wiggins and Gerald Spohrer get Quantum reels.
3. Was Gerald Spohrer Alton Jones Sr’s wing official?
We’ve got boat officials and wingmen, but check Gerald Spohrer makin’ dang sure Alton Sr wasn’t doin’ no cheatin’ at a BPT wing-eatin’ contest — reminds me of my black Lab lookin’ at me when I eat lol:
Tough to tell who’s more serious about that deal, and for all we know maybe Gerald was still hungry?
4. Rick Clunn’s dad thought he would starve to death…
…trying to be a pro angler. Rick, if it makes you feel any better, my dad thought the same thing when I second-mortgaged my house (twice) to build a website called BassFan…but you prolly don’t care about that, which is cool….
5. Bottom of the BPT points standings right now.

11. AR: First derby won outta a glass Vexus boat?
They say so so I guess so. Note that it was 2 Vexus guys fishing Bull Shoals (home lake) BUT there’s a ton of hammers out there so bet it wasn’t a gimme…. Check these fish-friendly wells on those glass rigs:
12. OK: Dogs being used to sniff out invasive mussels on boats.
13. ESPN getting more into sports betting info.

As Howell begins to piece together his internal Jenga tower of strategy and fish-catching acumen….
MLF/BPT media man and Superman’s dad Jo-El Shangle writin’ big words ’bout Randy Howell. Full sentence is a masterpiece of English:
> As Howell begins to piece together his internal Jenga tower of strategy and fish-catching acumen in preparation for the Berkley Stage Six Presented by TrueTimber on Table Rock Lake, he’s already hyper-aware of the need to stay flexible and diverse on a fishery that will probably be in the same unpredictable post-spawn condition as Smith Lake was.
Challenge you to read that out loud in 1 breath — cut down on that 5-hr Energy Shangle hahaha!
