    Normally Jason Christie’s offseason would focus on deer hunting and family, and when he’s locked in on a particular deer it becomes an all-encompassing pursuit. This year, however, was quite different.

    “I’ve been hunting a deer, one where we know each other by name, and I found myself in the stand looking at Google Earth images of the Sabine River,” said the 2020 Bassmaster Central Opens points champion. “I never do that.”

    Indeed, while measures related to COVID-19 have not substantially altered the veteran Park Hill, Okla., pro’s life – “When I’m home, I have quarantined

    High risk, high reward. It’s how I played the game of professional bass fishing when I was performing at my best. And it’s how I’m going to be fishing from now on.

    Tournament bass fishing is a sport where you’re going to fail the most. Every competitor – even one as great as Kevin VanDam – has a terrible winning percentage when compared to other sports. Even though I know this

    As much as I love to compete on the Bassmaster Elite Series, it is nice to bring it down a few notches and enjoy a more relaxed element of the fishing industry. I got a good dose of this over the Labor Day weekend during the Jason Christie Children’s Fishing Derby, which was part of the Cherokee National Holiday.

    This annual event brings together all the Cherokee tribes and visitors from all over to the Cherokee Nation capital in Tahlequah, Okla. There are all kinds of activities from softball and volleyball tournaments, to arts and crafts, a rodeo, an inter-tribal

    Shifting Gears for the Classic

    You might think that with the first Elite event of 2018 in the books that I’ll be shifting gears into 2018 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by DICK'S Sporting Goods mode. That’s not incorrect, but it’s not something that’s on my to-do list — we’re already there.

    In fact, the thinking and planning started as soon as I left Lake Martin. Not that you wouldn’t always be planning for the next event, but this one’s different. It’s the Classic, so the focus is even more intense.

    Tremendously Tough Fishing

    Most of the time, we talk about staying near the bait. You find the food and the fish are going to be somewhere close. Well, this winter has had such a strong impact that I’m taking a different approach.

    Jason Christie is a creature of habit somewhat, at least at Lake St. Clair.

    When the Oklahoma resident won the Detroit River Northern Open in 2012, he spent his tournament in Lake St. Clair, in an area near the mouth of the Detroit River, ripping a tube out of and through some grass. He caught 22-13 on the final day to overcome a deficit of less than a pound.

    Fast forward 5 years and that’s exactly how he captured the win in last week’s Lake St.

  • Finding Productive Grass Was Crucial

    The proliferation of new grass up and down the Potomac River made for a challenging venue for last week’s Elite Series event near the nation’s capital. With all the fresh vegetation, the bass had so many more options and areas to ride out the summer.

    It made practice a bit more of a task for the 107 Elite Series anglers, who tried to find areas with concentrations of fish that would bite consistently regardless of the tide cycle. That proved daunting and required most pros to move around and adjust
