Practice on Table Rock with Lawyer

October 31, 2016 9:23 pm
Native to Sarcoxie, Mo., Jeremy Lawyer has had a pretty good year, finishing eighth in the Angler of the Year standings in the Central Division of the Costa FLW Series, winning the FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) All-American and finishing fifth in the Forrest Wood Cup. I joined him on Table Rock for the second day of practice for the Costa FLW Series Championship to get a look at one of fishing's hottest sticks in action.

It was a tournament of firsts for Jason Nixon and Alex Hester, the winners of the boater and co-angler divisions, respectively, at the Lake Hartwell FLW Bass Fishing League Regional in Sene-ca, S.C., which took place Oct. 27-29. Although both anglers had won their share of money and trophies in past tournaments, but neither had won a boat before this tournament, and neither had ever qualified for the BFL All-American. Both anglers completed those tasks over the weekend, qualifying for the All-American to be held at Pickwick Lake in May 2017, and leaving Lake Hartwell with a new Ranger boat.

The 2016 season is finally winding down, and I can't believe how crazy this year has been. I've had a great year full of some good memories, including winning a Costa FLW Series tournament and a Walmart FLW Tour event, plus some not-so-good finishes.

Ever since vibrating jigs burst out of secrecy and onto the national scene they've been catching bass. Often referred to generically as ChatterBaits because of the Z-Man Original ChatterBait, the baits have produced plenty of expert anglers. One such expert is Bryan Schmitt.

Storms, Bucks and Sponsor Season

I really feel like my game will be escalated next year. I've had some years, successful or not, that I didn't feel like I learned a darn thing. This was not one of those years. After doing this as long as I have, to feel like you learned, and to know that fire to go out and kick butt again next year burns bright as ever is a good feeling.
