Alton's Blog

Each season I adopt a slogan that I believe will help me in my fishing and in life in general.  For example, my 2006 slogan was "Back to the Basics".


For 2007 I'm going to "Take it to the Next Level" in my fishing, my elationshipith Jesus Christ, my family, my ministry, etc. This really boils down o just one thing. . . giving my all for God in every area of my life.


"Will you Take it to the Next Level" too?

 



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.

Dreams

Every year, I start my fishing season with a few goals. Actually, they're dreams because they're not just professional accomplishments or checklist kinds of things, but things I've worked toward and hoped for ever since I was a kid.

I've realized some of my career dreams, like winning the Bassmaster Classic in 2008, but others have eluded me. Read More

 
Having a great time, wish you were here

After spending the week in upstate New York, I've confirmed that smallmouth bass are like a drug, and I'm addicted. What's more, I don’t want to be cured. I love it up here!

Did I mention that the weather's great? Well, it is. I was talking to Jimmye Sue the other day and she told me the temperature was 103 back home in Texas. Read More

 
Owners and rookies

I'm just getting back from a Skeeter owners' tournament on Lake Fork here in Texas, and I have to tell you that I love those things. First of all, Skeeter is a first-class company, and they do a great job with their owners' tournaments. The events are on great fisheries, you can win big prizes (including boats), they feed you well, and you're treated like a king. What's not to like? Read More

 
Coaches, chiggers and confounding fishing

I spent some time fishing with my friend Scott Drew this past week. Scott is the head coach of the Baylor Bears men's basketball team, and in April they won the NIT basketball tournament. Now, in the very early preseason for 2013-14, ESPN has them ranked 21st in the nation, so they're a strong program and Scott has done a great job. Read More
