June is a bust-out month

June is a month I really look forward to. In most lakes in the Carolinas, you’re going to be able to catch bass a bunch of different ways, because 85 percent of them have finished spawning, moved out and are feeding again.

Time for another chapter

I have been fishing as a full-time professional for 23 years, and several weeks ago, as many of you might have heard, I decided it was time to bring that career to a close. Beginning in March, I will move from fishing to broadcasting as a color commentator for The Bassmasters television show and Bassmaster LIVE’s online show, covering the Bassmaster Elite tournaments and the Bassmaster Classic.
