In general, the more bass fishing people do; the more they start to look like the fish they are trying to catch.

Everything on me hurts after a day on the water now.... my feet, my hands, everything.... It used to not be this way. Still look "in shape" but I sure feel different. If this is 40 I'm not looking forward to 70.

I can tell you without a doubt that 54 isn't any better. My friends used to call me the "Iron Man". I would fish from before sunrise to 10:00 at night, then get up and do it again the next morning. I remember one day getting up at 2:45, driving 90 minutes to fish a tournament, and catching them so well that on my way home from weigh-in I thought, "This is too good a day to stop now", so I stopped and dropped my boat in at Lake Tyler and fished until after dark.

My physical condition these days can be summed up in two words..."I HURT." The day after a tournament I usually feel so rough that I wonder how long I can keep doing it. But...by next time I forget all that and can't wait to get back out there.

I turned 60 this year and have always worked out just so I could keep fishing. That being said it is getting tougher every year. But I get inspired by guys like Larry Nixon, Paul Elias and the rest of the over 60 guys that fish for weeks on end. I have no idea how they do it. Fished Basschamps championship last year and was exhausted by the time the tourney started after 3 days of practicing. LOL! But I aint giving up yet!

God love ya, go for it pardner. Dang spider bite and having to 'stay out of the sunshine' just helped me make the decision to 'summerize' my rig - for now....
I do love it....just not a 'tournament fisherman'......LOL, my 'skill set or lack of' just won't allow it....
God Bless

33 years of football, hockey, golf, riding quads, and fishing have ruined my right elbow. I can't fish anymore without a brace, the pain it causes later that night is unreal. I'm also starting to get fallen arches, doc says it's from standing on the front deck too much.

Crankbait, I wished I looked that good.
Arms and legs are getting skinnier, and stomach and ears are getting bigger.
I buy Advil in the large bottle now and just keep on fishing. I've had the best year I've ever had for big fish, and its a long way from over.
Hang in there seniors-
