Last night, a Bassmaster Pro – Mike DelVisco – visited our local Texas Roadhouse and Mom and Dad took me down to see him! We braved the cool New England weather (sorry about that Mike) and ventured out in the drizzle. His boat and truck were right there in the parking lot!
They were covered in stickers – it was so cool! Mike invited me up on to the boat and we talked about fishing, lures…it was great.
I brought along my favorite magazines – Bassmasters and New England Game and Fish – and we talked about them too. Then he signed a picture I brought: it was of me last year with the biggest bass I ever caught. Thanks Mike!
Mom and Dad brought me inside for dinner – Mike eventually came in (I think he was frozen by then) and he came over and talked to us again. He signed a t-shirt and gave it to me! I wore it to school today!
I learned all about what I need to do to be a pro. He told me he fished his first tournament when he was just 15 and Bassmasters at 17 or 18 (senior in High School), and that his favorite lures are top water, and his biggest bass was 11 lbs 14 oz. Wow! He also lives in Tennessee. I want to fish there sometime!
I’m excited having met a Bassmaster! Lots of ideas for Casting Carter. Thanks for reading! Oh, and make sure to follow me on all my NEW social media sites:
