Don't Count Me Out

Is he mad? How’s he handling it? Is he OK? What’s going on?

These are all questions my wife has been trying to answer lately. I’m not sure why they have been directed to her when the questions are clearly about me, but she’s been asked by fans, friends and some of the other Elite pros how I’m handling the results of the 2015 Bassmaster Elite Series season. Even my own father calls Sara to see how I am instead of calling me directly. I guess they are afraid of what I might say…or maybe they think that what I have is contagious. Well, this is my best attempt to let you know the answer to the questions you were afraid to ask. >>> read more

Isolated Docks: the ins and outs with Randall Tharp

Posted by admin on September 3, 2015


Although dock fishing seems simple enough, it can be a mystery to us from time to time. Sure, we can see our target, but we never actually know what really is below. Is it holding fish? If so, why?

I am home for the first time since February. I haven’t found any other place that can clear my head and put everything back into perspective for me like my home in Florida. The waves hitting the sand and salt in the air is something I have been longing for for quite some time. The fishing here is amazing all year long and quite frankly, I just can’t get enough of it. The best part of it to me is that it’s relatively untapped. It doesn’t matter if I go fishing inshore, offshore or up a river to catch a few bass, it is never crowded. If I see more than a few boats in a given day that is a surprise which means that it’s just about 180 degrees from the BASSfest tournament we fished at Kentucky Lake. >>> read more

Randall Tharp punching heavy cover for big bass

No matter where his busy tournament schedule takes him, Randall Tharp nearly always spends at least part of each practice day searching for thick cover where he can use his favorite technique, a heavy tackle presentation known as “punching.” The reason is easy to understand: punching has helped the Yamaha Pro win the 2013 Forrest Wood Cup,® along with half a dozen other FLW® and Bassmaster® national events. >>> read more
