Man this is great. Always like listening to guys that know their craft. Some of the stuff they talk about I've never thought of, probably why they make money and I donate bang

Wonder if they use braid fishing off-shore? If not wonder why?

It's cool seeing the different styles between them. Collins with his big bait and power fishing and Freeman will down size and finesse them. Proves their point that it's all what you have confidence in. Great job Ken on getting these guys in the boat and really look forward to rest of these videos and some future stuff from other guys. So many good fishermen on these lakes that have a ton of knowledge to share

I'd pay to listen to Mike Metcalf talk about his history on Toledo bend and Rayburn. His dominance for those years will never happen again. I doubt anyone could ever get him to talk, but it would pretty cool just to hear the stories

Jaret, in part of the video that is upcoming i ask them who was influential in learning to fish, and fish offshore, that was a really interesting conversation. But then I ask Albert who he thought were the best 3 ever on Rayburn and Glen who he thought were the best 3 on Toledo they ever saw. It is a great trip down memory lane, I'm not going to spoil it but Metcalf made the list for Glen. We also talked about all the great guys that are gone and all the knowledge that died with them. Guys like Vernon Beaty, Stan Burgay, Gary Yelverton, and that got us talking about doing more of this so the guys that are out there now can share some of their knowledge, and honestly just great stories. In 2016 when we were down to the top 10 at the Rayburn Costa before take-off early that morning I parked my boat next to Ray Hanselman and then Tommy Martin pulled up on the other side of me (yes, a bit intimidating) and I started quizzing Tommy about Rayburn history, he said that in the earliest days of Rayburn a guy from Arkansas, and he couldn't think of his name at the moment, but the guy came down and knew how to fish offshore and went out in the Amber Forest and was catching 10 fish limits of 5-7 lber's and just blowing everybody away. It was so much fun to sit there and hear those stories, I want to capture more of that kind of stuff, and the instructional, on video for us all to enjoy.

After i wrote that, i realized i needed to add something. Several years ago I am pulling my boat out at Hanks creek and a pickup truck pulls down the ramp and stops by me. I look over and realize it's Vernon, and he has his grandson with him. I walk over and shake his hand and I ask his grandson if he knows how good of a tournament fisherman his granddad was, he said "no sir" and Vernon just chuckled. It kind of broke my heart that one of my early fishing idols had a grandson that had no idea his granddad was the incredible fisherman, and an incredible nice guy, that Vernon was. We had a nice conversation and I hope his grandson now has an appreciation for how much of my money Vernon took from me over the years.
