The 2016 season is finally here, I want to first say thank you to all my sponsors, friends, family members and followers who have helped me out chasing my dreams each season and wished me words of encouragement. I am very grateful for everyone that supports me and the great responses that I get from my articles that I post now and again. Speaking of that I often get asked why I have not printed an article in a while, well here is the simple reasoning. Each article I write is obviously related to my fishing experience and life on the road during the tournament season. But I also try to tell a story about life in general to inspire, motivate or maybe just put a smile on someone’s face. I realize not everyone is an angler or may not even like fishing so many of my articles include life experience. Most of my writings are developed as I lay in bed and try to drift asleep each night. Thoughts run through my head, sometimes I will wake in the night and write down and idea to save it for a later time. I normally do not write the story until it continually resurfaces in my thoughts several times.

The month of February and March finally start to warm my blood after the long winter.
Why? This time of year I am on the Outdoor Show circuit traveling the Northern part of the United States promoting a lists of great sponsors who support me during my tournament travels. This time of year also means within a few months I will soon be breaking out the boat again to start fishing for whatever will bite.
I just recently finished up at the Springfield Sportsman show in Springfield, MA, where there was a great turnout of people. I enjoy the shows for several reasons.

ATTENTION BASS ANGLERS AND BOATERS
I have been a Police Officer for 17 years my job basically consist of protecting life and property. My recent experience at the last BASS Northern Open on Lake Erie I fell victim to the very thing I thought should never happen to me. The goal of this story is to make sure any bass angler and boater never finds themselves in the position which I faced during this last event.
My dilemma started on day one of the event when I arrived at my location on the east side of Peele Island and my motor malfunctioned. At that point I knew I would need assistance with a tow in, but first let me clarify some things to keep me from answering a flood of questions when this article is finished. I grew up fishing the St. Lawrence River, Lake Champlain and Lake Ontario so traversing the big bodies of water is something I have plenty of practice with. Next I have a 2014 Nitro Z9 with a Mercury Pro XS motor. The boat is rock solid and a great rough water ride and with any bass boat it is only as good as the person who is operating it. At the beginning of my season I purchased a TOW BOAT US package. This package was said to cover unlimited towing, fuel assist and I also added on the trailer assist. Like many anglers I also have the biggest insurance package through Progressive in order to make sure I keep out of pocket expenses at a minimum and can have peace of mind while fishing. For those of you who are unfamiliar with what these packages offer lets clarify some definitions.
