Death of a friend.

he was the Bronzeback, a smallie rod extraordinaire. although he was a short 6'3" in stature, he made up for his lack of length with heart, determination and accuracy. In his day he pulled in a pb smallie of 5'9" lbs, a pb largemouth of 7lbs, and a pb chain pickerel of over 5lbs. he fought hard, through rock, reeds, grass, slime, branches, snags, weeds, muck, leaves. anything you could throw at him, he would vanquish without complaint, cast beyond belief, and always be alert to signal the next… Continue

Derek's Tournament Diary: In The Money!!!

In The Money!

Well, there was a two week break between the last tournament that I skunked out in and the next one which was on May 18th and held once again on the North East River in Maryland , so I took that time to regain some fishing confidence at my home lake, where I caught a few decent fish and remembered what it was like to feel a bite.

I was under no illusions that it would be that easy every day, in my researches on past tournament finishes in the ABA on the North East River, there was quite a few zerosdid not weigh/skunks so I quite expected that at any given time I could and would skunk out, despite my best efforts. There are so many factors that can affect… Continue

Derek's Tournament Diary: The Big Day!

The Big Day!!

The American Bass Anglers Division 09 hold their tournaments on the North East River in Maryland, and on the Delaware River in Pennsylvania/New Jersey. Both of these bodies of water are tidal, so fishing them is quite challenging as the fish move around alot depending on the tide and where they sit upon structure..

Saturday April 26th was the date of my first tournament, and it was held on the North East River. This area is also known as the… Continue

Derek's Tournament Diary: Getting Ready

Before I fished my first tournament, I realized that as a co-angler, I needed to pare down my voluminous amount of tackle that I would normally carry with me on my boat on a fishing trip to my favorite lake. And then pare that down yet again.

As a co-angler you are never sure what type size and size of boat you will draw to fish out of, and amount of storage space it has, and though my research I've found that there is no standard size for rear storage. It could range from voluminous… Continue
