Bass Master Classic---Mardi Gras

I was fortunate to spend a week at the Bassmaster Classic.  Ironically it was also the opening parade for Mardi Gras...kinda like a dream for most guys.  We started the trip out with water in the gas, a friend passing out on the side of the road from the flu, as well as a hand full of of other interesting developments in our 26hr car trip.  All of this taking place before we hit Louisiana!  All in all it was a great trip, with great food and friends.  The production they put on is something all anglers should see before you kick the bucket

Hardwater walleyes...we got your number

Well...I just spent the last few days on Erie with a few of my close fishing friends, and a few of the best editorial/photo guys in the business.  We went from fishing in -7 temps on day one, to right at freezing on the final day.  We took Argo's, snowmobiles, 4-wheelers and even an airboat out in order to chase ole Mr. Walleye on the ice.  Wait till you see the video and pics from this adventure! A big thanks to all that helped made this a success.

The new ride...about to leave the factory

While maybe we all dream about fishing this time of year, its hard to get serious about it, as the lakes are covered and snow is waist deep at the house.  But when the boys from Bert's Custom Tackle send you a pic of your boat entering the finish shop at Ranger....you get a little gitty.

Knowledge on paper

While a little bias, take a peak at the latest issue of Walleye magazine (an FLW Outdoors publication).  To my knowledge it's the only magazine dedicated strictly to walleye fishing, and they just really seem to put out what a lot of us walleye freaks want to see.  If you don't get a subscription look for it at Wal-mart, a local bookstore, or sign up at www.flwoutdoors.com.  They have just started an electronic version that features some informative and entertaining videos.

Should we stay...or should we go?

It's friday....Me and the crew are scratching our heads if it is going to be safe enough to go ice fishing this weekend. We all have more toys than we have miles on our trucks, but we need something like you see in the pic.  Anyone want to kick in the donation pot?????
