Will there be sight fishing at Smith Mountain Lake? Bo thinks so...

Smith Mountain Lake – What will the Smith Mountain Lake fish be doing next week when the Elite Series pros hit the lake?  Many experts are predicting that it will not be a sight fishing tournament like it was a year ago.   I will boldly go against the grain here and predict that there will be plenty of fish on the beds by the time the tournament starts.

What is my logic?  Last weekend I fished three different bodies of water here in North Central Alabama; a large reservoir, a medium lake, and a small pond.  All three places had more bass locked on beds than I have ever seen.   Even I could hook a few without spending much time coaxing them–and I am such a pitiful caster that I have to cast twenty times before I can get a plastic near a bed.   Shaw Grigsby, Kelly Jordon, and company would have had a field day catching all these fish.  Read more…

As I am sure many of our readers have noticed, the Armchair Anglers are biased towards Alabama.  This was not the original plan when we started this blog and podcast—it just kind of evolved that way.

While visiting our podcast, our friend Kent Brown from Ultimate Bass Radio took a few good natured jabs at our beloved state and the fishermen in it.  After that I thought hey, there is nothing wrong with showing a little pride in the hometown heroes.

With that in mind I have to say that it would make me extremely happy to see an Alabama angler win these tournaments in California AGAIN.  Import Alabamian Aaron Martens could easily win the Duel in the Delta…AGAIN.  Or Native Alabamian Steve Kennedy could win the Golden State Shootout. AGAIN.

What would be even more cool is to see the ultimate underdog from Alabama win.  With that in mind I would like to introduce you to the Keith Poche.  Keith is the only rookie that calls Alabama home competing on the Elite Series this year. Read more…
