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.

Alabama River 2nd: Jones Bouncing Around
alton-jones-img_4424BassFan.com - "The key for me is just keeping my head down and fishing," he said. "I don't have a magic spot where I can just sit there and wail on them, but I do have a pattern that's producing better-than-average bites. I'm getting 10 to 12 bites a day and most of them are 3 pounds-plus.

"I can say that I'm fishing primarily with 50-pound braid and when I get a good one, I'm swinging it into the boat. The water's still so flooded up that I think there's a lot of fish I can't access, so I'm actually hoping it'll come down."

He's catching all spots and his biggest today was a 4 1/2-pounder.

"I missed a couple bites that I never got hooked up with and my biggest one, when I swung it in, it came off and bounced off the windshield and landed on the floor of the boat. I had another one close to 4 pounds stay on even though my rod was caught up in some vines.

"I'm hoping I can get at least 18 pounds tomorrow," he continued, "but I'll just have to keep catching one here and one there."

 
Chapman rides rapids for lead

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Alton Jones and Brent Chapman stood side-by-side. They were the first two Bassmaster Elite Series pros in line to weigh in Friday, the second day of the Alabama River Charge presented by Star brite.

Jones sized up Chapman’s weigh-in bag. “I'll go first,” Jones told Chapman. “I want to lead for at least one minute.”

Jones had it right. His 20 pounds, 4 ounces earned him a fleeting look at the hot seat. Chapman’s 23-5 handily beat him. Chapman’s two-day total was 41-1 to Jones’ 36-10 — a 4-7 difference.

Jones had nothing to feel bad about. Together the two squashed the hopes of the other 98 Elite pros who followed them to the scales. No one knocked them out of first and second. Read More

 
More than "just" practice
One of the questions I get a lot from fans and casual anglers is how I go about practicing for a tournament and what my goals are in preparing for an event. It’s a great question, and something I think about a lot. Over the years, I’ve developed a multi-pronged system for practice. Read More
 
4th: Jones Still in the Hunt

BassFan.com Day 3: 5, 17-04 (15, 53-14) Jones will be about a pound farther back when day 4 starts than he was when he launched this morning, but still thinks he has a decent shot at his second victory in 2 years.

"It's still kind of anybody's game, really," he said. "Edwin had been catching 17 to 18 pounds a day and today he shows up with more than 22, and the areas I'm fishing are capable of producing a stringer like that. I haven't caught one yet, but it might be somebody else's turn tomorrow and I'd love for that person to be me."
