Lastly, 2015 is upon us. As we close out 2014, I hope that you give it your all. That you check some things off the list and move them from the "To Do" to the "To Done" side of the paper. 2014 has been a year of firsts for me. I have never written professionally nor had I ever killed a deer until 2014. I am so excited for the coming year and all that God has in store for all of us. Ahh the stories we will be able to tell and share this time next year. I want to encourage you to set some goals. Work hard at achieving them. We hope to sign four sponsors in 2015 to Handicapped Outdoors and add a small team of writing contributors. We also hope to begin to market solutions for handicapped/disabled outdoors men and women in my store - AndersonOutfitters.com. If you would be interested in being a sponsor, a producer or manufacturer, please shoot me an email and we will be in touch.

To my father, many of my uncles, cousins, former students and countless others who served this nation willingly so that we have the freedom to pursue our dreams and passions, we stand and applaud you on Veterans Day. May your sacrifice always be given the glory it is due and never be forgotten by future generations!

What is the magic water temperature? As soon as the water begins to cool, the fish will become more active with vicious strikes on the surface as well as hitting crank-baits, jerk-baits, swim-jigs, soft plastic swim-baits, etc. However, the giants like it when the water temperature hits 50 and below. Target flats that range between 3-6 feet or look for the big patch of water with shad rippling the surface.
Any last tidbits? Absolutely! Don't be afraid to experiment. This is an easy time of the year to get bit so try the weird or ridiculous bait to fine-tune your methods. Also be mindful of weather systems that are moving in and out. By timing your fishing excursion to the afternoon a front comes in, you can really catch some of the biggest fish of your life.
