Bass Fishing
« on: September 24, 2007, 10:09:55 pm »
I use to Bass Fish all the time, averaged 35 tournaments a year, my father-n-law is a semi-pro, he has sponsored (Stratos Bass boats and Yamaha Outboards) and all and they been trying to get him to go Pro for years and he dont want to quit his day job, hes a district manager for AT&T, He said once he retires he will fish Pro tour for a few years just to do it, but the old man has won all kinds of money and a New Bass boat, the works, the bad thing about it once I had kids my fishing slowed way down, hardly ever fish a tournament anymore, and I use to beat him fishing too, guest it was never meant to be, oh well I am proud of him, here's his profile on the Walmart BFL tour.... The Old Geezer!!!!!!!!!!!one good thing about it, all I have to do is back up to the new boat and go ;) , anyone else out there bass fish?

Did lots of tournnament fishing myself. Years ago I even beat Mike Iaconelli on Sunset lake in Southern New Jersey long before he went pro. Its a lot more exhausting than it looks and the competition is fierce. These guys are good. Real good on tour. Its what kept me on the sidelines too. I understand your father-in-laws position. Everything I learned fishing bass tournmanets has helped me be a much better fisherman in any other species too. Great "school" for fishing. If you think you can fish, enter a few and see how difficult it is.
