Every year I try and make a conscious effort to help other guys learn to catfish. I know you get out of life what you put in so I try and pay it forward! I also like to work on becoming a better catfish angler and improving my own game. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut and continue to do things the same way when you find some success. It’s a lot harder to focus on your week areas. There are so many different aspects and variables to consider when trying to improve. Acquiring all the proper gear, Keeping your equipment and boat in tip top condition, and staying ready at all times is only the tip of the iceburg. Becoming a wizard on the fishfinder takes many many years, learning bait patterns takes years. Learning your lakes staging areas, home zones, and ambush points takes many many years. Should I drift? Do I anchor fish? Do I pull boards? Should I look deep or shallow? Do I look in timber on the north end or humps and ledges mid lake? Last winter was by far my worst bluecat winter in the last 5 or 6 years. I still caught some good fish but I never could really get em going. Seems like everything was laying on the bottom and lockejawed half my trips. I almost forgot what catfish under Shad balls looked like! I’m hoping to get to fish with more of my TFF buddies this winter and really hope I can fish with some guys that can help me become a better angler. Hey! To my 2 TFF buddies that are always outfishing me and y’all know who y’all are, let’s go monster hunting! My War Machine or yours!!! Anybody else that loves to chase bigguns give me a shout! Always looking to expand my fishing contacts texas texas texas

I got a Rompin Stompin 2.5 yr old boy so I know all about spur of the moment fishing...my boy got sick a ton last winter and messed up a travel trip I had with my buddy Littlefeather and another travel trip I had planned with Prime and MJMMetro. My wife gets pissed if I take off fishing and leave her at home with a sick kid. Always a seat open whenever you want a roll serj cheers

I know you fish Grapevine a lot BigPoppa. I gotta buddy I been helping the past couple of years figure that lake out. He has turned into a hell of a Bluecatr and he’s gotta a real good grasp of that lake. His name is Tommy. We should all go fish GV together. Be a good fishing contact for both of y’all... We can take my rig. Your welcome to come fish my lake with me anytime amigo!

I'll spend quite a bit of time at Tawakoni this winter. We need to have a little get together and catch some monsters. I know where Tom catches most of his bait. It is usually out of my cooler. roflmao

I love Raybob...I’m defignitly down to fish it this winter! I’ve had good luck fishing that lake...it’s an up and coming bluecat lake and it gets better each year. You know a bluecat lake is on the rise when the record gets broken every year.

If anyone is ever in the Huntsville, AL area, look me up. May not catch fish, but the scenery is something else.
