2011, what a year for Chris McDonald Fishing. I started Chris McDonald Fishing last January so we are almost a year old. It has been an amazing year. My writing career has grown. I am writing for Bass Angler Magazine and Midwest Outdoors. I will be writing for another online magazine in 2012.
I have had the opportunity to talk with some awesome anglers in 2011. One of my personal favorite pieces I wrote was shortly after the Classic. I was interviewing Dave Wolak for an article for Bass Angler Magazine when we started talking about the Classic and the Lowrance Radar that was used. Go back and read it HERE.
I have done a few contest as well this year. I have had the opportunity to give away some plastics from Teacha Worms and J3’s new DVD. In 2012 I am planning on having some more giveaway’s. I am not sure what I will have but I know we will do a few.
I also had the opportunity to use some really cool stuff and review it. I think the one lure that I am the most excited about was the Death Shimmer Spinnerbait. I got it from another blogger Tyler Brinks and to be honest thought it would never catch a bass. Boy was I wrong, that spinnerbait is a fish catching machine.
2011 brought about a new age in fishing. The fishing apps for smart phones have been coming out left and right. I have been excited about them I like the ideas if they will help us be better fishermen. I am looking to the new apps for 2012.
I also did some videos which I hope to do more of in 2012. We saw the hottest lure of the year in the Alabama Rig come to the forefront of the fishing world. I was able to giveaway Atomic Tackle Company's version. I also did a video for it as well.
I can’t wait until 2012 and all the possibilities that lie ahead of us. Chris McDonald Fishing will be here and will continue to be a resource you will love. I already have some stuff from Abu Garcia to review in the following year. I look forward to you joining me next year.
