What do you think about the lakes being so heavily fished before the open ever gets a chance to fish it ? Something is off , and you where fishing like the Scott we know . I think you did everything right . Was just one of those days , great job you will get a win and be in the elites next year . Good luck at heart well .

I had one of those days I went to a tournament all was going well went to go to my spot that too week ago I caught 4 and 5 pounders. But did not realize that the lake dam had drawn down 4 ft of water. So got to my spot got stuck in a sandbar going 50 Miles pr hour. That was only 6 inches of water. When I pre fished cost me 200 dollars to get towed out as I wached my competition about 25 yards from where I was stuck caching fish day one was so bad day to caught 12 pound bag. Just keep your head up. and keep fishing. Always better days ahead.

I like how you reflect and find lessons to learn from your performances, good or bad. Thanks for the insight on tournament fishing. I've been away from it for awhile (club tournaments), but watching your videos and some other anglers has me getting fired up to fish some tournaments again. Good luck at Hartwell (as I type this you are sitting in the top 10 at Hartwell).

Every tourney is like a broken record. Not the good kind of record. Well, whenever you need to make a choice in a situation make a choice then do the opposite. Works for me.

I fished Rayburn the sat-mon before the tournament. First time on the lake, awesome fishery. Fishing was a little finicky but had a great time. Caught my better fish on a carolina rig, big crankbait and dropshot. Caught lots of fish but size was very bipolar 😂. Awesome videos, good luck at Hartwell.

Normally a bad result gives us a better judgment for the review of what went wrong and what you do right and clears our head and make us think clearly for what is coming , at least for me works that way. Wish you luck for Hartwell , looking foward to see you win there 💪💪💪💪💪

Still a solid winner in my book ^^ your baits have assisted me in more LMB hookups than i could ever count and you're a man that can recognize his mistakes and grow. dont beat yourself up too bad Scott stay positive and keep up the attention to detail it is by far one of the qualities that i admire most in you as an angler.

Sometimes I think you're not secretive enough and your competitors know too much about what you're doing while you know nothing about what they are doing because of social media. Just hope you can get out of the shared water scenarios also.

I rarely if ever comment. But I wanted to write to tell you that I have such great respect for you. Loss in our life changes over time, what appears to be a loss now may someday be Blessing. Your a tremendous example of what we as parents pray our children will someday become. Father, Husband, Son and Friend, you are always giving of yourself. I'm blessed to be a Dad, Husband, Son and Friend. I wish you a lifetime of Love of Family and Friends alike.

Scott, I'm not an "Angler". I'm a Granny who enjoys 🎣. So I'll talk to you like I would my own son when he feels he let himself down about something major. OK? Now, as I see it you were out there competing with yourself "YOU". And so you have the fish what you wanted, what you thought was best at the time. But your REAL competitor was ( and always should be) the FISH out there. That said, MAKE THEM YOUR CUSTOMERS‼️👍. Go the extra mile to give them WHAT THEY WANT. Serve up that bait or lure with all the extra fixings on top so they WANT what you're serving up.🥰. Be sure💯 to take your fishing arsenal as well as you're A-game. You do that and don't overthink about what you want at Hartwell. Head to HARTWELL and fish against the fish honey, they will ❤️💞🥰 YOU! 👍🙌. Now then, enough of 🧓Granny's silly wisdoms🧓. Take Hartwell by storm... you're going there to WHAT (⁉️ say it loud...) 💯TO WIN IT‼️. So go there and "KNOCK IT OUT" 🙌👏👍‼️ HUGS from an old 🧓Granny🧓, love❤️ ya🤗.
