Do You Really Want to Be a Tournament Bass Fisherman? (Part 4 of 4)

Do You Really Want to Be a Tournament Bass Fisherman? (Part 4 of 4)

And here’s the third and ‘final’ list! This is my favorite part of this musing.

Here are several short, but motivational videos, most of these are all about ‘Bass Fishing’!

A partial list of ‘The Reasons ‘Why You Will Make It’ as a Tournament Bass Fisherman’ In This Sport We All Love, Bass Fishing’!!

1. Because from this day forward, you will ‘know’ that doing the most productive thing possible in your journey has become your motto!

2. You are, or will become, the type of fisherman or woman that will, wherever and whenever possible, ‘seek both knowledge and wisdom’ about your passion, Bass Fishing, and becoming a Tournament Bass Fisherman!

3. You can’t change who your family is, you were ‘born’ into your family! But, you will ‘change their attitude about your passion in life’, which each little Bass Fishing success!

4. You can, however, luckily for you, choose ‘who your friends are’!

5. In other words, “if you can’t ‘change’ the people around you, then your only choice is to ‘Change the People Around You’! Got it? ‘Do you understand the words coming out of my mouth’? Also, always remember, “The mind is like a garbage disposal garbage (negatives) in, ‘garbage’ out! Put good things in (positives) good things out!

My guilt is almost all gone now, in that it has rained and there is flash flooding in and around Stockton lake all day today. I hope all club members are safe and get warm and dry soon. I really hope that they all caught a ton of fish. As for me, we only have 6 more tournaments, leading up to our Championship in October. I’ve fished two and dis okay in one (top 10) and nothing but participation points for the second one I fished for the year in March. But, for winnings and titles, they will only use the ‘best 5 of the ten total, counting the finals in October. So, I’ll just have to finish in ‘top 5’ in 4 or 5 of the 6 remaining tournaments to have a shot. I know I can, I believe I can, I think I can, therefore I ‘will’! LOL, no really, I think I can end up there. I just haven’t caught the fish per hour I did for the 2 years I was out of fishing clubs.

So, final thing you must do, or must have is ‘a passion’ for becoming a ‘Tournament Bass Fisherman’!

Some Definitions of the word ‘Passion’:
#intense, driving, or overmastering feeling or conviction (If your mind can conceive and ‘believe it’, your body will ‘do it’!)
#A strong liking or desire for or devotion to some activity, object, or concept a passion for chess, a passion for opera or a passion for becoming a tournament bass fisherman

Basically, in summation, let me finish this satirical, non-fiction, opinionated story, of a way to reach the goal of ‘Becoming a Tournament Bass Fisherman or Woman’ by saying one of many things from my ‘heart’.

In my 62+ years on the planet, I’ve had many passions, but I sincerely believe, now that I’m older, that the greatest things in my life, haven’t been ‘things’ at all. Not big houses (had those), fancy cars or trucks (had lots of those), nor stocks, bonds or huge amounts of money in the bank. (Use to have that) Not even those big, nice, fancy bass boats. Those are things, and lots of things can = really, almost nothing! But stress, and anger, and greed and all the other ‘things’ that seem to come with lots of things!

The point of these writings is ‘If something you have a passion about is worth having, and you work at it, learn about, practice it, and GOD wants to reward you with, only by ‘earning it’ in the true sense of the words, then ‘You Will Have It’!

In summing up this ‘open letter’ to whomever reads it, understands it and learns a little something from it, don’t let anyone steal your dreams. Don’t let them rob you of your passion(s) about life. As long as what you ‘want’ in life is pure, and good for you, HE wants you to have it too!

Things are just things, the valuable ‘things in life’ are, and hopefully will always remain…., GOD (your GOD), your family and anything else that is truly good for you.

Good luck and ‘tightlines’ to you!

Do You Really Want to Be a Tournament Bass Fisherman? (Part 3 of 4)

Do You Really Want to Be a Tournament Bass Fisherman? (Part 3 of 4)


Here’s another list.


This is a partial list of ‘reasons why’ you won’t ever become a Tournament Bass Fisherman?


  • Your family and friends will ask you ‘why’ you spend so much of your ‘money’ fishing?
  • Your family and friends will ask you ‘why’ you spend so much of your ‘time’ fishing?
  • How can you continue to go fishing when you ‘insert all the above question and more’?
  • Your family and friends will ask you ‘why’ you keep doing so much fishing, given their reasoning above!
  • Your closest ally, your wife/husband or your girlfriend/boyfriend, will begin to ask the above questions too.

The only reason you ‘won’t’ make it in the world of Tournament bass fishing is ‘you lack a real ‘passion’ for the quest!


You too easily give up on your dreams!

This brings-to-mind a couple of quotes which to me anyway, seem to apply here!

“What the mind can conceive and believe, the body will do!”

“A Journey of a Thousand Miles; Begins with a Single Step”!

The first quote is ‘Tony Robbins’esque’ like. (I know that is not a name, nor a word but you get my meaning). The second is either Confucius or Sung Tsu, I can’t remember which. Or was it both you think?

“Feeling less n less guilty as it started raining cats and dogs about an hour ago, and it hasn’t stopped yet! 10:00 am.”

Here’s a couple of links of a guy whom has made it, and ‘why’ he has made it in life! And both explain it a lot better than I can in words!  Here’s a simple riddle for you!  I’ve known him for almost 30 years, and he’s about to have his 30th. Birthday! Who he is?

You’ve got to follow one or both the links to find out!

And here’s a link that I and certainly, he, believe is ‘why he made it’!


“The guilt has dropped to almost ‘none’ as it has rained steadily for about 2 hours, and the forecast was a little off; as it hasn’t come within 10 degrees of the forecast for noon, 64! Plus, we all know how cold it is when you’re soaking wet, traveling at 40 to 65 mph out on a windy lake with gusts up to 11-13 mph. Lends to a new definition to the meaning of the words, ‘wind chill’!”


Do You Really Want to Be a Tournament Bass Fisherman? (Part 2 of 4)

Do You Really Want to Be a Tournament Bass Fisherman? (Part 2 of 4)


Back to bass fishing.


The reason I sit here feeling guilty is quite simple really. Since Monday, I have spent countless hours, and several twenty dollar bills getting ready for this Saturday’s bass club tournament. Including a ‘not so successful’ (1 post-spawn scrawny 15” keeper and 7 non-keepers) pre-fishing trip to Stockton Lake on Tuesday, I easily spent 30-40 hours focusing on the upcoming bass tournament. Including adding ‘new’ fluorocarbon line to 3 or 4 of my 11 or 12 fishing rigs, watching constant bass fishing videos and TV shows and re-tying almost ‘all’ of my fishing rigs, some more than ‘once’. Buying tie down straps for my most recent ‘project’ bass boat, $40-$50 worth of jig heads, single spins, soft plastic, and so forth. Can you relate

You thought I was kidding, didn’t you!
And keeping an eye on the long-term weather forecast all the while! Starting 10 days ago, I watched closely the forecast and ‘knew’ that because this is southwest Missouri in April, that there was no way that it was correct, that far out. I knew for example, at best, there was only a 50-50 chance that the forecast of rain and winds out of the north, would become a reality. Given that they were predicting ‘10’ days in advance, I knew that the man upstairs would make it a beautiful day, by that next Saturday. I also would have bet that some of the bass would be spawning, some in pre-spawn and a small percentage would be post-spawn. In other words, perfect conditions for a successful, fun and memorable day catching bass!

“As the hours and days drug by, the weathermen didn’t seem to care about my upcoming bass tournament’s weather, my feeling of hopefulness increased daily. I made a solemn promise to myself that I was going to this tournament, come ‘hell or high water, literally’! As I had missed the February tournament, mostly due to a weather forecast of cold, windy and rainy, and a bout with a stomach disorder, (probably) nervousness and excitement. Now, it’s not like I wasn’t fishing since then. Not at all.

As a matter of fact, I have fished 5 of 6 Saturdays, up to ‘last’ Saturday, as I couldn’t find any to fish, in a row! You see, I’ve joined USA Bassin Team tournament trail, fishing 3 different ‘divisional’ tournaments and an ‘open’ at 3 of the same lakes (Stockton, Pomme de Terre and Table Rock) that we fish at with Tri County Bass Club.”

The forecast started out predicting rain both Friday and Saturday. 40-50% chance of precipitation, began to creep up to 60-80%, and as of yesterday, most forecasts showed ‘100% chance of rain’, all day long! A major cold front came in Wednesday and Thursday this week, with overnight lows in the 40’s and those days were 20-30 degrees lower than the days leading up to them. But I ‘knew’ that the forecast was wrong!

“My guilt began to ‘diminish’ around the 6:30 am take off time, when all the sudden, after a huge crack of lightning, the skies opened-up and it poured for 30 minutes. My guilt began to increase though about 30 minutes later, as the skies suddenly cleared a little and the rain stopped. It began to diminish again, about 10 minutes ago (8:30) as the rain started up again. So, I still feel guilty, but less so.

There was a reason for all the boring detail above! I wrote it to see if any of you reading this can relate to how I feel as a life-long bass fisherman!

Now, back to ‘Do You Really Want to Be a Tournament Bass Fisherman’!

Here is a partial list of some tips to determine if you ‘Really Want to Be a Tournament Bass Fisherman’!

Do you constantly watch videos or read articles on bass fishing?

  • Are you proud of yourself, every time you figure out a pattern or lure color?
  • Do you weigh and measure most of your keeper bass?
  • Do you get increasing nervous and anxious the closer you get to your fishing trip or tournament?
  • Do you post pictures and/or videos of most of the fish you catch?
  • When you’re on the water, do you ask ‘other’ fisherman if they’re catching anything?
  • Do you tell the ‘truth’ when someone asks you the above question?
  • Do you know the current state or lake records for the species of fish you’re fishing for?
  • Do you keep track of your personal ‘bests’ as far as species, numbers or weights, and try to increase them every time on the water?
  • Are you very ‘passionate’ about the sport of bass fishing
  • Do you watch and read ‘motivational’ videos and articles, regardless if they are about fishing?
  • And, do you often read or view articles or videos on this or similar topics?

“It’s almost 10:00 am, and it’s raining hard, again. Feeling less and less guilty”!

The Table Rock North division of USA Bassin tournament on March 31st, 2018 was a
great day!

Be sure and check out the middle of the video as we basically tell you where and with what we caught the majority of our double digit bag!

Be sure and check out the middle of the video as we basically tell you where and with what we caught the majority of our double digit bag! See the ‘short interview’ with me playing MC, while
questioning Westin about our pattern and successful strategy leading to our 3rd place finish that day!

My son Westin Yancey and I fished the second of five Table Rock North division series of USA Bassin Saturday at Aunts Creek ramp!

When we arrived at shortly after 6:00 AM, we were surprised to see 20-30 boats already lining up for another tournament at Aunt’s Creek ramp. With forecast calling for a low 60’s day, we took off
promptly at 7:00 AM.

It had been years or even a decade or longer since I’d fished out of Aunts Creek on Table Rock lake, but I had good bass club memories of many limits brought to the scale while fishing with the ‘Finley River’ bass club back in the ’90s!

My son and I decided due to the recent warming rains, that we’d concentrate early on the warming tho muddy water in the backs of creeks. After about an hour and a half with no bites to speak of, we headed out for deeper water.

Congratulations to the Top 4 winning bags, 3 weighed double digit bags (Cole Findley/Matt Cesar; Westin and Randy Yancey; Mike Gold/LG Linville), and the 4th place team of Tony Rains/Adam Issacs, big bass winner (3.08) and weighed a bag over 9+ pounds!

The next tournaments are April 14th at Cape Fair marina and April 15th back at Aunt’s Creek north ramp! For details and early take off numbers go to www.usabassin.com , Table Rock North division, MO-14!

Dog Training Tips – Proofing Behaviors


How can you better test your dog’s intelligence and learning capabilities during the dog training process? This is a question that gives trouble to many dog owners or dog trainers. What does it mean? Does it matter to efficiently proof your dog’s behaviors?

What is it?

A short definition of the “proofing behavior concept” means a way or method to strengthen and strongly imprint all the commands and techniques learned by the dog. This definition doesn’t say much to most dog owners and it could be somewhat known by dog trainers today.

Proofing behaviors during or after the dog training process is something simple and fun to achieve. Just imagine that the weather is bad (cold weather, snowing/raining), not appropriate for dog walking or exercising. This is a great opportunity to fine-tune your dog’s behavior and commands understanding in the comfort of your home.

How to do it?

You might say that your home isn’t a good environment to practice various training commands, for the simple fact that your dog might break stuff and make a mess on the floor etc. Not true.

Proofing your dog behaviors is simple enough: it’s a way to make sure that your dog understands the commands properly and doesn’t mistake or ignores certain actions. For the common understanding, making sure that your dog doesn’t jump when you voice the “sit” command.

To properly start this proofing behavior process, you must first assess all the dog training commands the dog has been familiarized with. Write them down on a list if you forget some of them. This list will be as a schedule for you, but remember not to overstress and overwork your dog with it. A short session produces more results than a long and exhausting one.

Examples of proof behaviors

The “sit”, “fetch”, “quiet”, “come here”, “help” are terms are common dog training commands, used especially to see the dog obedience training level achieved by the dog. The method to proof these command is to use a variation of words that differs phonetically from “sit” (examples: spit, slit, sleep) in order to observe the behavior of your dog. More precisely, to see if the dog becomes confused and even does a different action than sitting down or fetching a toy, etc.

In order to better see the behavior response of your dog, you can mix this words variation with confusing movement and actions. Voice a command by covering your mouth with a hand and see if your dog understands or ignores your words. Try turning to a side or with your back to the dog. Voice the command again and see if the dog acts upon it. Go in the other room and voice a command, while the TV is on. If you have some special hand signals that your dog was used to, try those too.


You must understand that this proof behaviors process isn’t successful right away. Your dog is familiarized with most training commands. He will be confused when hearing some but will achieve other command actions immediately. This is a continuous learning process, ment to increase the reliability and response of your dog. This proofing method will keep your dog from getting bored and you will enjoy it too.

Training a Gundog Is not Hard – Lesson 4, Walking to Heel

The traditional position of a working gundog when not actively working is at heel, generally for a gundog on the left side, away from the gun 'at trail'. Interestingly, for a working falconer's dog the position is on the right, the bird sitting on the left fist, and the right hand free for access to sword or dagger (the tradition of mixing falconry and dogs in the UK dates back some way!) . The dog's head should be near the trainer's knee, except the dog or the trainer is an unusual size, but you get the idea.

For a dog used for deer-work, the heel position is a little more relaxed, allowing the dog some leeway to move ahead of the stalker. Depending on the size of the dog, the head should be a yard or two in front of the stalker. The main reason for this is to allow the dog to give some indication of deer ahead, and to prevent your scent interfering with the quarry's scent. If you are working a pointer, the dog can then point the animal before it is disturbed, allowing you to pause the stalk, leaving the dog in the 'Down' position.

Unfortunately, the ideal position for a deer dog to walk is what most dogs seem to consider the correct place to walk to heel! This is where the stretched arms of the big-dog walker originate.

For these instructions, I assume that the dog is being trained to walk on the left, and will leave it to you to reverse the instructions if you are doing otherwise.

So How Do You Prevent Bad Heelwork?

The best way to ensure that your right arm is not stretched by your over-enthusiastically mutt is to teach good heel-work from the beginning. When you feel that the time is right to start training, choose a quiet time in the house when there are few distractions, preferably just before a meal when the dog is not dozy and is peckish.

There are two traditional types of leashes / leads in use. The one most often used for pet dogs consists of a collar and separate lead, but for working dogs collars represent a snagging risk and are usually abandoned in favor of a single slip leash; a flexible thin rope or leather strip with a metallic loop on the end through which the rope is passed; much like a noose. The other end of the loop consist of a fixed loop which the hand passes through.

If you are working with a collar, attach the lead. If you are working the puppy on a slip lead, place the loop over the dog's head with the metallic loop end passing under the dog's throat. This is very important, as the leash can act as a noose if the metallic loop end passes over the back of the dog's neck, the reason being that when there is no pull on the leash the loop can drop down if put on correctly, but will stay tight if the other way around. Try it and see (gently!).

Hold the loop in your right hand, with the bulk of the leash across your front to the dog.

Now if this is the first time that the dog has had a lead on, chances are good that she will go mad and try to get the thing off. The best plan is to distract the puppy by talking to it, clicking the fingers, bending over towards it, offering a small treat (very small, you do not want to ruin the appetite or end up with an overweight dog), or any other distraction you can think of.

Once her mind is off of the lead, give the command 'Heel!', A gentle tug on the lead and then walk off, still keeping the puppy distracted and in approximately the correct position. Praise her up, keep her mind off of the lead and the puppy in the correct place. Do not overdo this, as boredom (your's or the dog's) is the worst enemy of training.

Once she has accepted the lead, which should not take long, practice little and often, saying 'heel' when moving off, 'close' when turning right, or 'back' when turning left (the latter two swapped if you are training the dog to walk on the right hand). If you have any preference for using different commands do it from the beginning (some people may prefer to use 'back' to send the dog away).

The 'Secret' Commands.

The aim of your training is to end up with a dog that will walk to heel either on or off the lead. When you are walking a dog where quarry may be stalked, there is an advantage to giving quiet commands; and there are some silent commands that can be used. Incorporate these in your training right from the start and along your normal command!

The first of these is the 'heel' command. There are two means of giving this command quietly, and both of these should be used along the spoken 'heel' right from the start. With the dog sat at your side, give a tug on the lead (held across your body with the loop in your right hand) and lead off with the foot nearest the dog. Both the tug and leading with the closer foot give signals. With the dog off the lead (or with it wrapped loosely around it's neck) lead off with the opposite foot, giving the dog a 'Sit!' command as you leave. The lack of tug on the lead, and the use of the other foot, will encourage the dog to stay (eventually!). After some weeks of practicing this occasion, you will be able to walk past the dog in the sit and either pick her up or not depending on which foot you place next to her as you pass.

The 'Close' command is passed silently through a steady pull on the leash across the body, and an exaggerated turn of the foot. This turn of the foot is accomplished by forming a 'T' with the two feet, the right foot pointing forwards and the left turning away from the dog at right angles.

The 'Back' command is indicated by a pull back on the leash (using the left hand to pull the dog back, holding the loop in the right hand still) and an exaggerated turn of the foot towards the dog.

When the dog pulls forward, an appropriate technique to control the situation is to stop and insure (via the lead and vocal 'Heel') on the dog coming back into position. Turns when she creeps ahead are also useful to ensure the correct positioning.

Anyways, the important thing is to take things at a pace she can accept with, do not overdo the exercise or she will be bored, and keep in mind the end result, it will be worth it. Enjoy!
