Caught a big spawner today....was dripping eggs. Let her go to have babies and grow. If you gonna keep some bass to eat, keep the 1 to 2 lbers....no sense in putting a knife into a bass like this that will be someone's biggest ever, maybe a youngster will catch her!
Me and Hackney went to The Basin last month to film this episode of Sportsman TV. The fish were moving into dead end canals and they were holding on the edge of grass lines. We caught them on the Strike King red Eye Shad lipless crank bait and on the Hack Attack jig. Watch the full episode for details.

We had a great turnout on Saturday with 23 boats. I had a feeling it was going to take between 10 and 12 lbs to win this tournament and it did. It took 11.59 lbs to take home 1st place and it took over 10 lbs just to crack the top 5! There was great competition out there, and it showed with a close and exciting weigh in. I had a great time putting it on, and I want to thank all you guys for.... Read More
Me and my wife fished an old lake on my lease by the river Saturday evening... We put the pirough in at about 3. We caught 10 fish all together but only kept 5.. They were full of eggs and been eating crawfish.. Caught some on lizards (California 420) and others on crawfish colored crankbaits. We lost a 4 more nice fish at the boat trying to lip em. Next time I will bring my net.
