Potholes Summer Tournament Recap

Potholes in 2017 brought very different conditions as compared to 2016, even though the CBBC tournament date was almost exactly the same. Anglers who relied on locations from last year were probably surprised to find the water 2 feet lower this year as compared to last. Those who

Tri-Cities Tournament Recap

With pre-tournament high water conditions and a cast of extremely talented anglers, one would have thought largemouth might be king in our Early Summer CBBC qualifier. Weight guesses ranged all the way up to 24lbs, many fully expecting someone to put the beat-down on the green fish. However,

CDA Tournament Recap

Although it felt like the dollars spent were many, Coeur d’Alene Lake was absolutely beautiful, and Harrison was an extremely hospitable little town. I give a thumbs-up to the Lakeview Lodge and the Osprey Inn, both were awesome places to stay. Jordan still can’t get over how everyone
