MyersBard1stPlacewebIf last weekend’s duck season opener was anything close to last weekend’s stingy bite at the FPT’s “Gold Country Showdown” event at Lake Oroville, then it is for sure that a good number of hunters ate roast chicken instead of roast duck for dinner.

For FPT competitors fishing that “Gold Country Showdown” event not only faced the daunting challenge of competing on a clear, deep-water lake currently hundreds of feet below normal pool, and a day that would prove to yield only a few limits over 6 pounds, but also had to keep focused on the task-objective of finishing high enough to secure one of only 100 berths available in the Tour’s year-end championship event known as the Coors Light Future Pro Tour Classic.

DoubleJAbout 8 years ago on a fall afternoon at Lake McClure while setting up for weigh-in, a young man fishing from the bank near the launch ramp approached me and politely inquired as to what we were doing.

After receiving the rundown, he had two simple but direct questions: 1) How much weight does it normally take to win and event, and 2) are competitors required to have a “fancy” bass boat to enter. The very next year, when the new season began, that same young man was standing at the sign-in table, entry fee in hand, ready to launch his 8’ rubber – Zodiac style boat, and start competing.
