Default FLW Clear Lake National Guard

First of all, I am happy to say that I will be fishing in my new Z-Coil shoes next year on the Tour! After trying on my first pair, I fell in love. They are by far the most comfortable shoes out there. They are perfect for standing all day fishing! Check them out. Zcoil.com

Clear Lake
This is the last tournament of the year and I had a lot riding on this one. I went into this event in 8th place. The big picture was making the 2010 Forrest Wood Cup. All I had to do is qualify in the top 20 overall and I would be going. I also had a chance for the AOY!

Prefish
My Prefish wasn't what I really had hoped for. My original plan was to spend the first two days up north and try to find a shallow bite and the next two days down in the south end of the Lake fishing deep rock piles.

I started off fishing offshore grass throwing a variety of swim baits and flipping some shallow docks with a jig and a drop-shot. Both days I managed a limit around 15 to 16 pounds. The bite seemed to be tuff and the fish were hard to pattern.

My next days down south were about the some as the first. I had about the same weight and the bite overall on the rock piles wasn’t that good. In years past it had been a lot better!

Tournament
My first day was a train wreck! I decided to start up north. On my first spot I pulled up only to watch a friend of mine catch 20 Lbs. I struggled to get bite and finally managed a small 13-1 limit. After the weigh I was in 71st place.

The second day I changed up and fished down south. I still struggled as far as numbers go, but I made a big move up from the day before. I fish from 15-25 feet on rocks throwing a drop-shot and a big jig. I had 18-5 and moved up to 49th place.

On the finally day I decided to fish the same areas that I did the day before and try to get a quick limit. I took me until about 11:00 before I finally got 5. At this point I knew that I needed some big ones if I had any chance at making a check so I went BIG the rest of the day. I never upgraded. I ended up with 14-5 and finished in 46th place.

Good news is that I finished 13th overall and made the 2010 FLW Forrest Wood Cup. That was my goal for the year so to have the chance to go back is AWESOME. The other good news is that Lake Lanier is full of Spotted Bass.

Thanks Calbassin,
Cody

Are you serious? Look like an invention from an old Popular Mechanics? Definitely a new spin of the shoe trend Duckett started a few years back.

Thanks to Cody I'm wearing the as well - and the fact that I
A. Gave up my Nike Shox (I was addicted - I have 20+ pairs in the closet)
B. Wear 'em even though they are ugly

Says a lot! My body is beat to **** from 26 + years of football... so any help for alleviating the pain of being on my feet for 8-10 hours a day is welcome. Since the change to Z-Coils, my back doesn't need to be popped everyday - my knees don't hurt after a day of fishing and my feet feel great. Yeah, they are ugly - but, they are the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn.
