After a few months of "hibernation" I decided it was time to start preparing for next season. I believe 2010 was a good year with 2 wins and a 6th place at the Berkley B1 but I want MORE! I will be fishing Econ-o-Bass again this year with my dad and we'll be trying hard for another top 10 overall. I will also be fishing the Berkley B1, the Lions de Lefaivre Tournament along with a few Fishin-Canada Ripples.
Last few weeks have been dedicated to organizing my equipment for the upcoming season. I spent countless hours cleaning my reels, rods, baits and hooks to make sure everything runs as smooth as possible in order to maximize my time spent on the water. I have learned the hard way over the years of the importance of keeping everything cleaned and organized. I was a bit concerned at first since I had never openned a fishing reel but all it takes is someone that knows how to do it to show you the proper way. Once you know how to do it it's just a matter of practicing and after a few reels it becomes really easy. You end up saving some money and it's somewhat rewarding knowing you cleaned and lubed your own reels.
