TOP 12 at Sam Rayburn – 2017 Elite Series #5 Knocked out my first Top 12 of the 2017 season at Sam Rayburn. That place is full of fish and I caught fish on numerous baits! My main setup was a Green Pumpkin Chatterbait and I fished it around hydrilla. Also caught some on topwater (Zara Spook) and a jerkbait.
2017 Elite Series #6 – Lake Dardanelle Lake Dardanelle gave us some crazy conditions for the 6th Bassmaster Elite Series event of the year. There was a lot of dirty, high water, plenty of bait for the bass to feed on and every bite was crucial during the event. Finished up in 31st with 37 pounds, 3 ounces and got some good points.
TOP 12 at St. Lawrence River — 2017 Elite Series #7 I put together a good event at the St. Lawrence River, which was the first tournament of the Northern Swing for 2017. Managed to get a Top 12 and finish in 10th. It was good momentum and my second Top 12 in three events. Crazy to think 76 pounds, 8 ounces will only get you 10th with this group of anglers!
