I need to learn more tactics, cranking, Carolina rigging and other things. American lakes are much bigger than the lakes in Japan. The lakes here take a lot of time to learn. They have a lot of different kinds of structure, cover and wood, stuff that doesn't exist there. There, you just fish deep structure.

I'm going to go for win number three on Kentucky Lake. I like Lake Champlain, too. So maybe I can add another.

I will try to win three times. I love Kentucky Lake, and Lake Champlain, also.

I worked very hard, so I am happy. There was no Christmas, no Happy New Year for me this year. Just fishing. I was here.

The gravel went with a gentle slope, and that's where the fish were. I knew they spawn in that area. The wind helped a lot.
