Yesterday, I had the privilege of fishing the U.S. Reel Pro Am at Lake Conroe ahead of the Toyota Texas Bass Classic.
While that would be exciting in and of itself, it was a true honor because my partners for the event were the legendary Jimmy Houston and TF&G Ultimate Trophy Quest winner Scott Bandy.
The event pairs a fishing pro with two amateurs and give them four hours to catch, weigh and release five bass. We managed to catch 11 pounds, 2-ounces which was good for 11th place. Of course even better than our honorable position in the competitive field was spending time with Houston.
He shared his wisdom on bass fishing, the outdoors business and introduced us to the U.S. Reel Liberty, an awesome new casting reel that will be hitting the market soon. It was a day I will never forget and one that yielded a couple of killer video clips we will air here at fishgame.com next week. Until then enjoy these photos and have a great weekend.
