Fishing Report

I've learned over the years that a person could drive themselves crazy worrying about every little detail when it came to fishing. Bass Fishing Hall of Fame member Dee Thomas once said "keep things simple." Taking his advice, I routinely go through my tackle and remove items that haven't been used in a while.
