Things finally clicked for me in an FLW Tour event a couple of weeks ago at Lake Eufaula, Alabama when I earned my first Tour top ten finish, landing in fifth place after four days of fishing. It was certainly a fun event, especially since my Dad was down to practice with me and fished the tournament on the co-angler side and my wife was able to make the trip down and catch the final few days of the tournament.
I got on a good topwater bite that lasted throughout the day. It was fun fishing. Unfortunately I lost a couple of heartbreaker fish on the final two days that hurt but still it was a great tournament.
I caught most of my fish on the new Jackall Binksy topwater lure and the old school Pop R. Here is a shot of the new Binksy...it's pretty cool!
Here are a couple of nice fish from practice...
After the tournament August and I went to Atlanta for a couple of days and took in a Braves game, which was pretty cool!
Back at home the ice is out and the water has been warming quickly, already into the 60's on Lake of the Woods. Before I went to Eufaula I had a great day of bass fishing with some clients from Southern Ontario.
This week fishing has been good for everything, crappies are shallow, walleyes are still relatively shallow (8 - 12 feet) and bass were starting to make beds already in some of the shallow bays. I love fishing this time of year!
