Back when I was pretty much a rookie bass fisherman, I met Troy at the Mini-Mart in Castaic. This was when he was getting his name in the paper all the time for larger bass--especially from the lower lake and Lake Mission Viejo or something. I went up to him said hello and asked him a question about pointers for the lower lake. So far, he's the rudest angler that I've ever met in my life. That article is pretty much exactly from Bill Murphy's book. I'm not a bit surprised that he's stealing someone else's tactics and passing them off as his own. He is not a nice person at all!
