Sorry I haven’t written on the blog lately. From the very second I arrived home from our basstastic good time at Lake Toho, I have been chained to my computer tap-tap-tapping away at the keyboard on my book. I’m racing the clock on the final weeks until my (revised) deadline. Assuming all things go according to schedule, it will be released in the fall!
And speaking of schedules, there has been a one-week delay on our Bass 2 Billfish TV episode. Instead of airing this week, it will premiere next week on VERSUS:
Friday March 25th 1:30pm EST
Saturday March 26th 11:00am EST
Sadly I won’t even be able to see the premiere because the Professor and I will be camping in Live Oak Florida for our 3rdtrip to Springfest. You may recall our first trip to Springfest in 2008 was our very first date. (Cue the harps. ) And then our second trip was last year….anyone want to take the over/under on whether or not I get the Professor to don a manskirt this year?
So PLEASE, for me, tune in to watch Bass 2 Billfish next week and let me know how the episode goes! Just to whet your whistle, how I about I give you a few hints….
Showstopper bass was caught by yours truly on live bait. Our guide, bass pro Terry Segraves, lent me his actual weigh-in bag from the tour and we weighed it for the cameras…
Tune in next week 3/25 and 3/26 on VERSUS to see the official poundage!
In the meantime you might get a kick out of watching our audition video that landed us the spot on the TV show. The Professor was VERY reluctant to participate in this endeavor on every level, but he was such a natural on camera that of course the producers picked him! And he will be the first to admit that the trip and the shoot was a total blast.
Spoiler alert. The video gets more hilarious toward the end after we’ve had a number of Janie’s margaritas at Matt’s El Rancho and proceed to stalk Dale Watson at the Broken Spoke….
Finally, many thanks to professional photographer Rick Sorensen who took over 4000 still photos on the tv shoot. He was kind enough to share at least 1000 with me. He is very talented and when he has his website up and running I will make sure to share the url with everyone. Cheers!!
