  1. Very cool thanks for the kind words guys. I had a good run and capitalized on some aggressive feeding windows after the first set of cooler overnight temps. most of my bigger fish were taken on top water prop style baits near structure and lay downs. I had a great time fishing against some elite river smallmouth fisherman in this tournament. If you can make time to get out at least a few times in October it would be great to see more ISA guys in this Next tournament. I just signed up for it. Great idea Colin for the river smallmouth exclusive event. I’d love to see one in early spring 2020 also 😉
  2. They are the lightest most comfortable wading shoe for moderate terrain I’ve ever tried. Perfect for Hiking long a distance to a good spot, float tube or to wear while kayaking. good grip and feel great on your feet, but if your fishing areas with a lot of chunk rock/rip rap they don’t have any side protection so that’s really the only case I’d go with a traditional boot over these. I really enjoy how comfortable they are. They are well worth buying in my opinion. Don’t know how much life you’ll get out of them because I just got them a few months ago.
  3. Wow that’s horrible! Nothing is guaranteed! Hope nothing like that ever happens again but with these leaking coal ash ponds all over it feels like only a matter of time.....
  4. Pretty rough way to go by choice. Sad no matter what the motive.
  5. How do we know if & how many tickets are still available?? Thanks!
  6. Very cool. Years ago I used to take notes on my phone after or during my trips and save them in emails. But never consistently. I should look back and try to find them...
  7. This my favorite show. It can be a bit tight as it Not as big as some other shows but lots of great vendors, custom bait manufacturers and good people all around. Hope to make it Sunday for a bit.
  8. They did but most have melted with the recent warm temps.
  9. Took The family Out to Matthiessen State Park for some hiking before the frozen waterfall melted and got some near pics. Thought some would enjoy.
  10. 👍 went to rams game last week. This D is the real deal.
  11. Niiiice Paul. I hope we have some decent days Christmas week I can take advantage of.
  12. Your right Paul. It takes a true passion for it and The peace and quiet of being out there alone with only Mother Nature is unmatched.
  13. Welp work took over my Friday and I never got out maybe between Christmas and new year I’ll hit you up.
  14. Yes I was thinking of getting out Friday but not sure what the scheduled rain will do to that idea. I’ll play it by ear.... I was thinking of covering some water during Christmas break looking for spots I can drop anchor and pick apart slowly.... I’ll be in touch before with some questions as I don’t winter fish much bit would like to more. Thanks for the feedback
  15. Oh most definitely I’ve seen his videos fishing rivers in horrible conditions! Love his passion for it.
  16. Solid! High flow + cold water = tough but extra rewarding if you can land a biggun. You kayak fish a lot During cold months?
  17. Cool idea.... I’ve been plotting for a winter float on the kayak this winter. Gathering all the data I can to find wintering areas and ways to stay warm while doing so. I need a January smallmouth yet.
  18. They are all up now.... hope you can get out later this week but a cold spell is coming....
  19. Snow storms are especially rewarding to catch fish during. Thanks for the reports guys 😆👍
