Future Pro Tour News
LINCOLN Ca. – Summer will be winding down soon, and most bass anglers know that bass living in deep-water lakes will soon make the transition and move into the shallower areas to chase bait and feed up for the ensuing winter. But that time is not quite here yet.
Bass for the most part can still be found lurking in the cooler water located off deep points and drop offs only coming up to feed during the cooler parts of the day. And with the sixth stop in the Thunder Valley Outdoors Future Pro Tour’s 2010 season only weeks away, it would not be wise for those looking to secure their berth into the prestigious Future Pro Tour Classic to simply wait for active-feeding fish to move up to the shallows. So what to do?
The word from those in the know is: “Go deep and stay deep”.
For most, going deep – and staying deep is more easily said than done, in that many anglers neither have the angling skills or equipment to really make the most of deep-water fishing. But for those of you making plans to fish the upcoming FPT event, to be held September 18th at Lake Oroville, and dubbed “49er’s Choice”, help is on the way.
This Thursday, at Thunder Valley Casino from 6:30-8:30pm the FPT will host a deep water electronics seminar featuring sonar expert Len Vinci who will be on hand to help you understand how to read and interpret your sonar units, help you program your units for maximum efficiency, and provide information on the basics of sonar and the new side-imaging technology.
For those of you that have never attended one of Len’s classes, you need to know that they are a “don’t miss” situation. Len is a dynamic speaker that has the gift of making what seem to be difficult concepts easy for everyone to understand.
THE FIRST 25 that sign-up will receive a chance to win a new Humminbird fish-finder, and a NAVIONCS navigation chip just for attending the class. So if you want to get the electronic edge on the competition come Sept 18th at the Oroville event, you need to put that TV remote down , DDR that Thursday night’s episode of “Law and Order”, and come on out to get the information you may need to put you in the winner’s circle.
For more information, and to sign up please call the FPT office at 916-768-0938
