First a big thank you to Mike who goes by MDM here on the TFF for helping me find John Hope to write this piece. I even give the TFF a shout out in here. Every time I talk to John I feel like I learn something, I hope you guys enjoy reading this half as much as I enjoyed writing it. Also if you have never read the stuff by Todd Driscoll of TPW that I reference, some additional interesting reading. For any of you Facebook users, Facebook likes are a big deal on articles, if you like it, please "like" it!

Great article Ken. We had Mr. Hope out to a club meeting many years ago and pretty much had a question and answer session for a couple of hours. He is a very interesting, nice man that really opened up a lot of eye's to bass behavior with his studies.

Anybody that wants to catch really big bass consistently would be well advised to CAREFULLY and THOROUGHLY read all that and Mr Hopes study observations. I can tell you it has been the best and most true bit of info I have read about giant bass. I use those simple truths every year for any lake in Texas.
Not to carry on, but I can't emphasize any bit of information on this forum more than his work.

Ken:
Absolutely a great article. Any thought that this should be submitted to some of the fishing mags like BASS or Bassmaster, or other outdoor publications? There's prob. a whole host of fishermen that aren't members of TFF. Just a thought.

Trackerman thanks for the compliment, I'm working on something else now that may get picked up by FLW. Unfortunately they all want only new content so they generally won't republish....already checked!
