We kick things off by talking big bass with the FLW Tour’s Randall Tharp who this summer won the FLW Tour’s coveted Forrest Wood Cup and a $500,000 payday! But Randall’s journey is far from a normal one. The 44 year old Florida native was swinging a hammer at his day job just 6 years ago. That’s when he decided to quit his job and become a full time professional bass angler. An expert on shallow water fishing, Randall gives us some useful tips and of course also talks about seeing something he wanted and going all in – he is a true testament that the American Dream is alive and well. Randall and the FLW Tour will once again make a stop in Texas on Sam Rayburn for the upcoming season.

Then we check in with renown whitetail author, TV show host, and passionate bow hunter Bill Winke. Over the past 20 or so years, Bill has penned articles for almost every outdoor publication out there. His desire to study the habits of big bucks and use that knowledge to help harvest them is unmatched by whitetail enthusiasts. This week we discuss his recent article in “American Hunter” magazine that focuses solely on how on to effectively arrow mature bucks out of a ground blind- like this Iowa bruiser

Ground blinds often get overlooked by bowhunters, but there is a time and place for them on every property – especially if you hunt anywhere in South Texas. Bill talks about how wind conditions can make a ground blind the ideal option. He also shares some tricks of the trade regarding how to scent proof your ground blind and how to cause the least amount of disturbance each and every time you leave the field. A well brushed in and scent proofed ground blind can be a whitetail hunters best friend.

Next, we are joined by our longtime friend and the recently promoted U.S. Army Lt. Colonel and Army Bass Anglers founder Cody Roberson. We catch up on all things ABA and what they have coming up on the horizon. Also we have exciting news to break on the sponsor front as well. One thing is for sure, there’s never a dull moment when the good natured Lt. Colonel drops by to talk fishing with us!
