I've only got a couple tournament blogs left for this season. Seems crazy it is almost over but it means we've got a lot of other fun things about to kick off.

Grand River 2018

Seems crazy we are at the halfway point of tournament season right now. Summer is going by in the blink of an eye. One thing that is consistent about summer is there is always at least one Grand River tournament. It always ends up being one of the most challenging tournaments for Shaun and I. It seems every time we think we have something figured out there it changes, not to mention the river is always in a state of change. I don’t know if we will ever truly dial it in like some others have but one thing is for sure, we are going to keep trying.

After our miserable performance at Charlevoix we were pretty determined to rebound at this D&R tournament. I had one look of the river during a weeknight tournament and was blown away at just how much water was out there. There were so many more places fish could hide and while I think it can make fishing more challenging right now I think it will be a great thing for the fishery in the future. With all that water we decided it was in our best interest to bring 2 boats.

13 and Change

A lot has happened since the last blog, 4 separate events actually. So unfortunately I won't have enough space to get into every little detail. I will do my best to remember the important ones though. A few of them weren't the typical events we have around here so that at least made things interesting.

Taking it from the top, Shaun and I had the D&R Muskegon event. It was going to be good opportunity to get things back on track and get things rolling in the right direction. That plan became a little more complicated when I visited the lake to get some practice in. All the things I normally like to do were  garbage except for one little flash of greatness. Even then that was fishing a favorite area with a much more finesse approach. That isn't really how Shaun and I like to do things, but the fish get what the fish want whether we like it or not.
