Florida was challenged with severe cold fronts to begin the new year. Having to start the 2011 Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Weekend Series trail during such weather extremes was less than fun. My first day of practice started at 7am in 29F temperatures. The first wave over my boat soaked my right leg and shoe. Not good. I never could find a group of bass big enough to win so I scrambled and fished my strength: shallow water power fishing. I ended up finishing 32nd place and earned a few points. I will definitely have to step up my focus to have any chance at a top five finish this year. Maybe I need to expand my techiniques to include more deep water fishing patterns?
