My apologies. 1,509 miles, fourteen room nights and too many great meals have past since my last post. I hope you can forgive me.
First there was the Big Cat Quest championship in Tunica, MS. (See previous post)
Next, there was the Crappiemasters championship event on Grenada Lake. Fishing was tough this year. It took a team from Iowa utilizing some walleye techniques to win. Imagine using side-planers and crankbaits on crappie! Congratulations to Kyle Steinfeldt and Tommy Skarlis. More details will be in the next CrappieNOW Magazine.
Then there was another wonderful Southeastern Outdoor Press Association (SEOPA) conference. Larry Bozka, Steve Matt and I got a chance to test the new bay boat. We managed a few reds and a mess of speckled trout too. A great day before we got down to business in Lake Charles, LA. The folks at the local CVB were excellent hosts. We all look forward to coming back again.
The smell of fuel and burnt rubber is calling. Adios!
