FLW Pro Angler Bo Cross, Tennessee
Bo Cross came off Beaver lake with a 18th place finish in his first flw majors event of the season, Now having practiced at Lake Hartwell this week he plans for his attack to come out on top.
Now that practice is over Bo only has a short time to work on his game plain, lock it in his mind and then relax take a breath and then hit the water for the launch of Thursday's tournament . We had a chance to speak with Bo Cross and he filled us in shortly on how the week went.
Day one was tough Bo said. Bo and his home town practice partner and flw co-angler Jim Campbell covered a lot of water, Bo said his best five went about 10lbs.
(Jasper, TX.) -- 29 year old Kim Bain-Moore keeps adding to her list of “firsts” as today she won the first ever-regular season Lady Bass Anglers Association tournament on Texas’ Sam Rayburn. Bain-Moore added 14 pounds even to her day one total of 20 pounds 94 ounces to give her 34.94 and the win.
“I felt like I could catch a limit and yesterday I sat my goal around 12-15 pounds and I figured that would keep me in it,” Bain-Moore stated. “I caught my five yesterday fairly quickly and the big ones all bit in about a 30-minute window.”
There is a new show hitting Fish Bait Radio
, FLW Anglers Bo Cross and Big Jim Campbell are both staff members at Fish Bait Radio and will start doing their LIVE show after each FLW event. Bo and Jim both being from Tennessee have it a little different than some anglers, While Bo fishes from the front of the boat and Jim fishes from the rear of the boat, the best thing is that they tour together.
Bo and Jim are best of friends and have the honor of traveling to each event with each other, sharing on the water experiences, No matter what it may be rather the high's or the low's they share double the knowledge of what goes on in each tournament. Win or lose Bo and Jim will go live on air and talk about the conditions of the tournament, competitiveness of the anglers, presentations and what they took away from each tournament. We might even through in a few secret lure tips and what was the top lures being used so you can have the edge the next time you visit on that body of water. Join us on our facebook page and keep up with time and dates or keep look back here on our new Fish Bait Media web site on the Radio page. Bo and Jim will try their best to do their show after each tournament with-in one to two days after they return home, If for some reason they are still on the road going to another location, well then we will bring you the show live from where ever they are on tour. Hope you can tune in and stay tune for some great FLW touring tournament action with Bo Cross and Big Jim Campbell. Their next stop is

Tournament fisherman have a lot to think about. I recently heard someone compare a golfer to a fisherman. The golfer can often get bogged down if he thinks about each little thing he needs to do to get the swing right. A fisherman can also get bogged down if he thinks too much about all the different choices that he could make for each circumstance.
Some of the issues that can come into play are water temperature, time of year, time of day, time of season, water clarity, air temperature, line type, line weight, pole type, pole flexibility, lure color, lure type, the list can go on and on...
One of the important things to do is to try to simplify you choices. Wouldn't it be quite a bit easier if there were only a few lure choices? If there were only a few colors to choose from? I try to keep only a few colors of each bait. A light color, a dark color, and a special color for each lure choice is really all that is necessary. Believe me, I understand with all the choices in colors available it makes it very difficult not to buy everything available, but one of the things I think really helps this situation is to try to keep things simple.
If you only have three color choices, in three depths of crankbaits, then you only have 9 choices of crankbaits. If you are fishing stained water, I try to use use a dark color crankbait, or a real bright color, like chartreuse. I try not to get caught up in buying every color of a lure. I try not to get every type of bait under the sun.
When I look at each tournament lake, I make a plan based on that particular lake, the time of year, and where I would expect to find the bass on the day of the tournament. When tournament day is here, I try to stick to the plan, unless some condition has changed that would change my game plan.
Sometimes people or things make us change our plans, sometimes for the good, sometimes for the bad. One long time competitor says something like,"I think plastics is going to win today."
Talk about head games. Does that mean I should fish plastics? Or is it reverse psychology, meaning not to fish plastics? I try not to listen to dock talk, but it still makes it difficult to not affect the decisions made, one way or the other.
On tournament day, simplify your choices, do not listen to dock talk. Focus on the weather, time of year, and color of water, Fish what you know best. Tight lines. Fish with fury.

There are many things about fishing that I find very exciting. One of these is what I call a double. This has happened to me twice so far since I have started fishing specifically for bass. What I mean by a double is when you have two bass on the end of your line. I don't know the odds of it happening, or how many people that it has happened to before, but in my twenty years of fishing, has only happened twice to me. In both of my cases it has been on lures with treble hooks.
One cold fall morning, on the river near where I live, (Three Rivers, MI) I was working on walking the dog technique in particular. My oldest son came with me, and after about two hours of casting and reeling he decided he has had enough. He put his poles away and curled up on the bench seats to get out of the wind. Two and a half hours of trying to learn walk the dog with nothing to show for it. Sure, I threw some crankbaits here and there. I happened to notice a spot of calm water, nestled next to some brush, protected by wind and current so I made a cast there when I twitched it once and boom, he hit it. The bass took it down and was tangled in a log. It seemed like it had been tangled for a long time, but probably been less than a minute. I had to maneuver my boat and position my rod to work him out. When he finally came up I realized that not just one, but TWO bass on my Sammy! My son woke up quickly, (with my sceaming, of course.) and grabbed the net and he netted those two bass. That net must have weighed around eight or nine pounds with those bass in it!
Jump ahead to fall of 2010. I was fishing in the first lake of our classic for our small bass club, I had the only non-boater on my boat that day. Which was a good thing, we were fishing a lake that was linked with a river. I already had two in the live well, the weather was overcast with periods of rain, a few hard downpours, with some light rain off and on. I was fishing the current area of the river. Which were places where I have had success in the past. I was cranking with a shallow crank bait that had a tight wiggle. The rain stopped for a few minutes and I felt a real strong bite. I tightened the line and kept the tension up. When I got it closer to the boat, I yelled at Ron to grab the net. I couldn't believe my eyes. There were two bass on my crank bait. I really didn't think that two bass could fit on that small crank bait. I was so excited that it was during a tournament! Ron hauled them in with the net as I unhooked them, as I measured the first, it was a keeper and some where around two pounds. The smaller one I knew would be close, so I measured carefully. It was only thirteen inches, we need fourteen inches to keep here in Michigan, so I had to put it back in the lake. I only ended up with four that day, but I was in first place, even if it was only by a few ounces.
I don't know if you have ever had a "double," but I don't think I could put into words the excitement when you see two on your lure. I would have to say that if you do, then you are doing something right, as far as the area you are fishing and the lure you are using. So keep on fishing, keep on learning. Tight lines. Fish with fury!
