Hello Everyone.
They said I should do the get to know Ya thing so here you go.

I used to do the Bass Club thing and some Local Tournaments years ago. Kinda got out of it and went about 20 years without fishing at all. I retired a couple years ago and moved to Florida last year as a full time resident So Of course I bought a Tracker Boat and started fishing again. It's Florida who wouldn't. No more Tounaments for me but just looking for Bigs.
My PB is an 8.8 lb out of Northern Indiana (which is extremely rare) and a 6.5 lb Smallie out of St Clair. Both on the wall. Trying to break the 10 lb LM is my current objective.

I have found there is a huge difference in Florida LM and and northern strain. It has been quite the adjustment for me.

Anyway looking forward to so good fishing content and talk.

I actually have met and fished with FD. He took me out on one of his Veterans Free Trips. Even made a Video of us on Cypress Lake and Hatch. Yeah FD is the Man. Taught me how to power punch ( I made up that term ) Helped me catch more fish though.

I believe Power Punch is a beverage that was first created at one of our Ultimate Bass Guntersville rallies. ;D
