When a major tournament comes to your home lake, there's always that local expert who claims he's catching 20 pounds a day in practice.
BASS Elite Series rookie Clark Reehm has prepared for a career as a professional bass fisherman since he was 12 years old, but despite nearly two decades of prep work, some things still caught him by surprise during his first season in the big leagues.
Elite Angler Clark Reehm may not look particularly buff, but under duress he's been known to perform superhuman feats of strength, lifting boats off mudflats and push poling those same boats down hundreds of yards of what often turn out to be dead end canals. He doesn't do it for the health benefits; it's all about finding populations of fish that the competition overlooks.
Clark Reehm has been fishing B.A.S.S. events on the pro side since 2002, and is one of the youngest on the Elite circuit at age 30. He's begun to make a name for himself with his second Bassmaster Classic berth, and is looking to be around for a while. Here's how he answered our 20 Questions:
