Mother Nature is dominating the headlines on day one of the Rayovac FLW Series Texas Division event on Lake Amistad presented by Frabill. A steady rain has been falling most of the morning. It's been accompanied by a brisk wind blowing at 15 mph from the northwest, bringing with it a piercing late-winter chill that has these Texans bundled up tight from head to toe. The thermometer said 52 degrees at takeoff, but take it from someone who was out on the water: The "feels like" temperature is much, much lower.
When most people hear the name "T-Roy Broussard," they think of me as the Texan in the big green airboat on the reality television show Swamp People. Three years ago I was introduced to households across the world as a burly alligator hunter that made a living off of the land.
Greenfish Tackle recently announced that they have partnered with FLW Tour pro Michael Murphy.
During each audio podcast, FLW hosts Jody White and Kyle Wood will discuss a variety of different issues of interest to bass-fishing fans. In addition, during select podcasts, White and Wood will also interview compelling FLW Tour anglers and/or FLW officials in an attempt to get their thoughts on myriad intriguing topics.

Legendary south Texas reservoir Lake Amistad has hosted some of FLW's most infamous smash-fests - the kind of tournaments where anglers weren't challenged to catch fish, but were pushed to keep up with the competition when 20- and even 30-pound stringers were being hauled across the stage.
The 2015 Rayovac FLW Series Texas Division kicks off this week in Del Rio on Lake Amistad in an event presented by Frabill and hosted by the Del Rio Chamber of Commerce. The legendary south Texas border reservoir is challenging the field in practice this week, but recent tournament results suggest that some of the lake's legendary hawg largemouths might end up taking a ride to weigh-in when the best bass fishermen in Texas hit the water. A one-day team-format Bass Champs event on Amistad on Jan. 24 took almost 26 pounds to win, with the top three teams bringing in individual big bass that weighed 8.47, 8.52 and 10.62 pounds, respectively.
