I’m happy to announce that one of Japan’s leaders in tackle manufacturing, Biovex and myself have come to an agreement that will highlight me sporting around the freshly wrapped Ranger showcasing the Biovex logo’s as I partake in some of the highest national level pro tournaments the U.S. has to offer. Taking a giant jump forward in my quest to compete in a Bassmaster Classic and a FLW Forest Wood Cup, as well as attempt qualifying for tour level play.
Biovex is preparing for their highly anticipated release to the U.S. market in early 2012. I’ll be out putting their innovative and quality baits to the ultimate test, trying to work my way towards the top of the pack of professional bass fishing.
My Ranger is in getting wrapped as we speak. Here is a template of my boat and what it will look like when it’s complete.
In anticipation for the 2012 season when I plan to make the jump to the Opens, Everstarts and/or PAA Tour events, I’m using this time to learn and progress myself as much as possible. Preparation is key and though I understand there will be a significant learning curve, I still plan to put myself in position to succeed. This is a major opportunity for me and I plan to take full advantage. I’m working on my weaknesses and mastering my strengths by trying to be on the water every available second. For instance, there’s a certain lake that has always been a tough lake for me when the smallies are shallow. If there not in 25 plus feet than I often enough find myself looking from the outside once it’s time to hand out checks. So when the opportunity came to get out there with my buddy Ryan Brant just for the fun of it, I was all in.
We were able to help each other become a better angler. I helped tune him into a deep bite and at the same time I learned something from him when the bass are shallow. In the end I was slinging 4 pounders on the new Biovex Kolt Fish Tail like I’d been doing it all my life. Now because of that I built confidence in methods that have historically got the better of me, making me a more versatile angler.
