So Far So Good

It’s been a great start to the Elite season. I always enjoy going to Deep South fisheries in the springtime when the bass are shallow because it really fishes to my strengths. I feel very thankful to have come out of the first two tournaments with good finishes and a great start in the Angler of the Year race. It’s always good to start the season with some momentum.

Jones adds Blue Water LED

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. — Bassmaster Elite Series pro and 2008 Bassmaster Classic champion Alton Jones has joined the national pro staff of Blue Water LED.

Jones has been using Blue Water lights for the past seven or eight years, and it was that experience that laid the foundation for the partnership.

“I’ve gotten to know the good folks at Blue Water pretty well over the last several years,” said Jones. “Sometimes, when you have a great personal relationship with someone, it can turn into a good business opportunity, and this is a perfect example. I look forward to really helping grow the Blue Water brand and to showing anglers all across the country how proper lighting can be a huge benefit to their fishing.” Read More

4th: 8-Pounder Saved Jones

> Day 4: 5, 15-03 (20, 74-07) Thanks to an 8-03 bass today that weighed more than his other four fish combined, Jones came away with his third Top-4 finish at the St. Johns.

"I feel very fortunate," he said. "We've been here about the same time of year each time and I seem to catch them a little differently every time. This place just fishes to my strengths."

After finishing 6th in last year's AOY points, he's off to another strong start as he sits in 4th through two events.

"I do feel good about the start," he said. "One thing people don't often talk about is points are just as important early on in the season as they are late in the season. Later on, everybody's watching to see who's going to make the Classic and who's not. Every bass I can catch now is one I don't have to catch later. I'm thrilled to have had a good start and get a good jump on the points."

His day was made tougher by the northwest wind that kicked up Saturday afternoon and continued through today. It muddied up the water on the east side of George where he'd been having success.

"It shut those fish off yesterday and I thought it would settle down overnight, but it didn't," he said. "I caught five, including my big one over there, but I had to scramble around later and culled a couple of times." Complete Story

 
5th: Jones not Looking

> Day 3: 5, 19-08 (15, 59-04) Jones is one of the game's premier sight-fishermen and he caught his entire bag that way on day 1, but hasn't done it since.

"I'm just fishing pads and grass," he said. "I'm using a couple different baits, but I'm catching the majority of them on the YUM Dinger that I like to throw so much down here."

He caught about 25 keepers today, down from 40 on day 2. His biggest was a 5 1/2-pounder.

"The problem today was the wind. I was smoking them until 10:30, but then it muddied up my main area. It was white-capping on (Lake George) and when you're fishing in a foot and a half of water, it silts up pretty good." Complete Story

 
Fishing’s ‘World Series’ aptly named

AR-140209592The 2014 Bassmaster Classic will take place Feb. 21-23, and they rightfully call it the “World Series of Bass Fishing.”

No other tournament puts so many top anglers together to compete for big money and the life-altering experience that comes with being named a Classic Champion. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to prepare for this major fishing event?

A lot of the contestants, including Alton Jones, winner of the 2008 Bassmaster Classic at Lake Hartwell, traveled to Alabama in December to pre-fish the 69,000-acre Lake Guntersville, located along the banks of the Tennessee River in Northeast Alabama and the site of this year’s Classic.
