Only one day for me to run around the river which seems to be fishing pretty tough, good part is an off day today and time to get prepared for everything. A lot is going to change over the next few days so staying positive and keeping and open mind are going to be key for me this week, I’vde got some rest and ready to tackle the first event with everything I’ve got!

Despite all the obstacles in Carl Jocumsen‘s path to the Elites, he perservered and made it to the biggest stage. He never quit, never gave up and continued to work his hardest; dreaming of the day he could hold an Elite Series trophy. Jocumsen’s dream came true at Lake Tenkiller in 2019 because he never stopped believing in his dream.

Yesterday morning we were half way around the world and now we are in Palatka, Florida doing my last minute prep for an early start on the St Johns River! Over 20 hours travel in a plane but everything went pretty smooth, someone stole our B&W Trailer hitch off the truck at the airport but that was the only bump.🤦♂️ Two hour drive up from Orlando we picked up @roothebassdog which we were super excited about and can’t say thank you enough to @brandonpalaniuk and @tiffaniemccall for looking after her for us!! We put in the work before we left so I would be prepped for tonight, had all of my tackle rigged and ready and the boat totally dialed in and @lancecamper set up before we left for Aus!
Feeing great, hopefully get some sleep tonight and not wake up in Australia time! Big day of practice tomorrow and we will be ready to get the season started!!
It’s been a hectic few weeks home but I lived in every moment of it, yesterday was amazing and nothing makes me more proud than to see Kris and Danni tie the knot and the people in my family so happy. We made it down to Brisbane International airport early this morning, LA bound then Orlando and straight to the boat ready for the last day of practice on the St Johns river!! Two of the biggest weeks of the year coming up back to back……..I’ll rest later!!
There is one man that could make me travel half way around the world and miss some practice for the first Elite event but nothing could stop me from being here for my best mate @krisgeorge14 on his wedding day! Best man comes with some big duty’s and I’ll always be here for him no matter what, never been more proud and can’t wait to see him get married today!!

Very special morning today handing over a 10K cheque to a group of very deserving hard working Aussies helping out our wildlife! 🇦🇺 🐨
Water For Wildlife has been rescuing Koalas and other Wildlife from the local fires here and have been for many years in the dry conditions. They now continue to help the survivors and population with watering and food stations. All the equipment comes at a big cost and our donation is going to help them build more and continue too get them out in the affected areas. These volunteers were recommended by many people as their work is recognized locally but needed more support and exposure on their mission, it was incredible to see the emotion and what the money meant to them. We had WIN News out with us to tell their story and will be up on Mondays News. We were lucky to find a few Koala’s out in the wild and knowing they will be looked after and protected was a great feeling. The future looks bright when you have selfless people like this group donating their time and money to the things they love.
