Happy birthday to me.
Today is my 54th birthday. They are really coming around fast now.
Last weekend was perfect for celebrating a wedding anniversary with the weather being more like November than anything typically seen in North Carolina in the middle of August.
Well it happened again.
Yes, I lost a giant bass in yet another tournament. But before you jump to the conclusion that this will be just another sad story about the win that slipped away, let me finish my tale.
Sometimes in life we have a day that we wish would have lasted forever. Like going to the Liberty Tobacco warehouse with my dad as a kid to sell tobacco, or when my wife and I used to take our young son on bicycle trips to the beach for an afternoon outing while in college in Wilmington.
As you fill your glass up with water at your sink, do you ever wonder where that water is coming from?
In last week’s column, I promised to tell you about the rest of my trip to Lake Champlain in New York where I was fishing in the FLW Everstart bass tournament.
Last week’s 28th-place finish out of 125 mostly professional anglers at the Lake Champlain FLW Everstart tournament in Plattsburg, N.Y. was my best major bass tournament finish ever.
I think I have created a fishing machine. My wife, Susan, is really catching the bass lately and she’s pretty happy about it as you can tell in the picture.
Tyler Purcell and I had respectable finishes in each of the Angler’s Choice team tournaments we competed in on Kerr Lake last weekend.
To get to the other side. Can you believe it? But it’s true! Many of us see an increase in turtles crossing the road from late spring to mid-summer. The increase in turtle crossing during this time is due to turtles looking for prime real estate for nesting.
