The TrailDash2 is definitely the most advanced and intuitive Jeep product on the market. It has so much technology and so many features that it can be tough to keep track of all that this product can do. One of the exclusive features in the TD2 is a built in accelerometer. That small feature has big implications for the Jeeps that have the opportunity to run one of these kits on the trail or the street.
What does the built in accelerometer do for me?
Glad you asked! For the Jeepers that head out on the trail or those who like to climb steep grades, the accelerometer will give you a pitch and roll calculation that you can see in real time on the industry leading 5” high resolution TD2 screen. You can use this feature to understand what steep really is. You can feel comfortable knowing that angle that is making your passenger sweat is actually still safe. The accelerometer doesn’t provide just the pitch and roll information but also a G-Force measurement so you can also measure any G-Forces you may experience including braking and acceleration. The G-Force and accelerometer features are displayed on our custom screen layouts with other vital parameters so you can keep an eye on your rig.
Glenn Browne admits that as last year’s FLW Tour schedule came to a close, his mind was elsewhere – still on fishing, just not the here and now. As the schedule wound down, he was out of contention for a Forrest Wood Cup berth as a result of his skipping the Lake Eufaula tournament to fish the Southern Open at Logan Martin Lake that fell during the same week. It was a calculated decision made in an effort to qualify for the Bassmaster Elite Series.
He came through at Logan Martin, sewed up an Elite Series invitation and the rest is history.
“Those last couple of events last year, my drive was kind of gone because I was out of it,” he said. “I had checked out a little bit because my mind was already on building sponsors for this year and all that. I was just ready to get on with this year.”
Now six events into his first Elite Series campaign, Browne finds himself on the cusp of grabbing his first Bassmaster Classic berth. He’s 31st in points with two tournaments left. Here’s the catch, though: Both of those tournaments will take place north of the Mason-Dixon Line, which isn’t always a good recipe for a Florida-bred angler like Browne.
He’s optimistic that should shallow-water patterns emerge at the Delaware River and/or Cayuga Lake, he’ll be able to make something happen and hold his place in the points standings.
“I’m a bank-beater who loves to flip and pitch,” he said. “From what little I’ve heard about the Delaware, I should be able to get in areas and flip and pitch at cover. At Cayuga, we’ll have milfoil and after fishing Champlain a few times, I have a feel for how that deal works. As long as I fish my deal, I feel cautiously confident.”
Picking Up Steam
Browne missed checks in the first three events this season by a collective 4-11 as he logged a trio of placements between 52nd and 60th. It was a frustrating start, but he bounced back with three straight Top-50 results, including a 13th at Toledo Bend, to climb into Classic contention.
“In each of the first three tournaments, I had opportunities,” he said. “I missed the cut by 2 ounces at Table Rock. On day 1 at Seminole, I had 20 pounds of fish on, but only caught 9. My year could’ve gone from fair to mediocre to pretty damn good if a couple of things went my way. I’ve fought that all year. I feel like I’ve been around the right deals, but to have a really good tournament, you need to be around them and put them in the boat. It’s one of those so-close-yet-so-far things. You can’t put yourself in position to win if those things happen.”
Asked to grade his freshman season fishing the Elite Series, he was blunt.
“I’d say fair to middling,” he said. “At Seminole, in a span of 15 minutes I lost two 5s and a giant in the 8-pound class. At the St. Johns, I lost a 4 1/2-pounder on day 2 that would’ve helped me make the cut. At Table Rock, I lost a couple on the Biffle Bug on day 1. I hadn’t fished it that much before, but once I got it figured out, I bounced back on day 2.
“It’s so much tighter with how B.A.S.S. structures their points. You sure don’t want to have a bad day. Mediocre days are okay, but those bad days are what you want to avoid.”
Won’t Fish Differently
With three solid finishes under his belt now, he’s focused on what’s to come at the Delaware and Cayuga, fisheries that will be new to most in the field. Browne, however, doesn’t anticipate having to move too far out of his comfort zone to find success at either venue.
The two fisheries couldn’t be any more different from each other. The Delaware River is an urban waterway that sees massive tide swings in the neighborhood of 9 or 10 feet. It’s anticipated any bag over 10 pounds will be strong in the City of Brotherly Love.
Cayuga, on the other hand, is a 38-mile long natural lake in the heart of upstate New York’s Finger Lakes region. It’s deep – it’s deepest point is 435 feet – and supports a diverse mix of warm- and coldwater species. The weedy north end is likely to attract the shallow-water specialists like Browne and docks will factor in as well, as they did 2 years ago when Pete Gluszek won a Northern Open there.
“Cayuga I feel okay I about,” Browne said. “I went to college with a guy who lives up there so I’m going to be looking to him for a few pointers before off limits. From what I understand, it’ll be a largemouth deal and from my experience fishing the south end of Champlain, I’m comfortable with that. It should be up my alley.
“The Delaware is a big unknown. From what I understand, it’s not the best fishery and 12 or 13 pounds could be considered knocking their lights out. Those are the types of tournaments, from fishing FLW for years, that’s what I’m used to, though. Those grinder tournaments were the norm and that’s how I fish. I don’t hunt for the big schools. I just get on the bank and grind.
“I don’t think I’ll treat them any different. I’ll just fish how I fish. I’m not an offshore guy and I don’t believe these last two will be offshore events. I’ll be on the bank or in the grass. I won’t be in survival mode. If the opportunity presents itself, I’d like to make a 12-cut. I had some opportunities earlier, but missed out.”
Three weeks ago I traveled to Many, LA and Toledo Bend Reservoir looking to get my season more on an upswing. I actually had a relatively slow practice, but I found a few areas where the fish where spawning in some pockets and few places that I could catch them around some grass beds in the morning on a jerk bait. I started the first day fishing these grass beds and caught a few keepers then started sight fishing for spawning fish and filled my limit pretty quick. I then ran into a pocket and caught a five pounder and a 3 1/2 pounder and finished the day with 16 pounds. The second day went fairly similar and I ended the day with right at fourteen pounds squeezing into the top 50 cut in 45th place. Then going into the third day I gave up some of my areas to my roommate Jacob Powroznik who eventually went on to win the tournament. I went to a few new areas and fished the heavy grass with a jig and ended up catching the biggest bag of the third day at 21 pounds and ended up in thirteenth place just missing the top 12 cut for the final day. That was a little bit of a bummer but still happy with a decent tournament. I then headed 850 miles home in the Superchips F 250 for six days to take care of some business to just turn around and drive 950 miles to Russellville, AR and Lake Dardanelle.
I started practice in some areas that I had fished about five years ago, when I was there last, and let me tell you they were biting! Everywhere I went that first day I was finding fish, I was thinking I was going to really catch them there. Then of course a big cold front comes and it gets cold and rainy and changes things up a little bit. On the first day of the tournament, I went to my spot and caught a small limit and bounced around the rest of the day and caught a few upgrades. I lost two real good fish at the end of the day and ended up with just over 12 pounds and was in 82nd place. Needless to say I wasn’t a very happy camper that night. The next morning I wake up to a very foggy morning and the takeoff was delayed nearly three hours. I went straight to my starting spot and started catching them right away flipping a big jig on wood, grass, and reeds. I caught them pretty good, but felt like I was going to be just short of the top 50 cut. While waiting for a spot to park my boat, I heard some of the reports and standings and the weights seemed to be way down from the day before. I weighed in nearly sixteen pounds and ended up moving from 82nd to 35th place which I was ecstatic about. On the third day I just never got any better bites and ended the day with just short of 13 pounds and ended the tournament with a 36th place finish. I also moved up to 31st in the points standing inside of the cut for the Bassmaster Classic as long as I can stay there. I just got home and am looking forward to a relaxing Memorial Day weekend out riding around in my Jeep with the family before I start my prep work for Lake Chickamaugua.
