SkeetBlogWell, thanks to you – the fans – I’m packing myself up to head to Toyota Truck All Star Week in Montgomery, Ala.

I can’t even begin to tell you what a humbling feeling it is to be going because the fans of our sport voted me in; it’s absolutely unbelievable. I never would have imagined being in this position after the season I had, and I can only say one thing about it.


To have one in a region that included stiff competition like Alton Jones and Brandon Palaniuk; amongst others was unexpected. I can only try to make it up to you by going to Alabama with the intent of fishing hard and trying to win the events down there.

I’ll do the best I can to try and honor your votes by fishing as hard as I can and try to end the season with a great performance. It would be a great way to make up for the year I had.

ICAST is behind us now, and I am really encouraged by everything I saw down there from my sponsors, and the response from the buyers was very positive.

Lucky Craft really made a great showing with the new baits they release at the show, and the new colors are excellent too. I’m really excited about the new Fat Smasher and the new rattling version of my SKT crankbaits are going to be awesome too.

TroKar came out with a couple new hook models, but the new TroKar trebles are going to make fishing with any treble hooked bait even more effective.

Then, the six new models we released in my rods; the new Micro Honeycomb spinning rods and the casting rods in my Tessera SGlass and SCurve series were well received and I’m looking forward to hearing what the public has to say.

Well, the next time I put my blog together will be after the first round of Toyota Trucks All Star Week; I can’t wait, and I hope to have some good news to share with you.
