PRO TRAIL PURSUIT
The 2012 FLW ALL AMERICAN was a lot of fun for both myself wife Jackie and Grandson Devon. The results of the tournament for me were not very good and to say I was disappointed with my 33 rd place finish would be and understatement. I found the fish needed to win the tournament but I did not execute very well at all. With that being said it was a little different for both my co anglers fishing from the back of my boat. Both of my co anglers made the top 10 on the co angler side of the 2012 All American. Congratulations to both as they fished very hard to earn those top spots.
Maybe that is why I became a fishing guide.
FLW did a first class job with every minute of the entire week for the fisherman and their families. We stayed at the Gaylord Hotel National Harbor Marina on the shores of the Potomac River in Maryland
just down the street from downtown Washington DC. Why I was busy fishing Jackie and Devon enjoyed the many sights of DC and the beautiful hotel pool and National Harbor GIFT SHOPS!!
A lot of my tournament friends told me before this tournament to be happy just making the FLW All American which is one of the biggest accomplishments in tournament bass fishing taking 49 Pro and 49 Co Anglers out of the 36 Thousand on each side competeting each year to make the All American Tournament. I have fished my share of tournaments with the same
$100.000 first place prize but I will say that this tournament was indeed very different. With No Entry Fee to be paid and all expenses for the entire week being paid by FLW Outdoors (except Jackie and Devon Shopping) this was a week I will never forget.
Thanks FLW Outdoors and my family for all the support.
I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we did.
