There are a couple of highly-rated barbecue places in Central Texas where devotees line up at 8 o’clock on Saturday mornings, hoping to get a taste of brisket that’s been cooking for hours. When the establishments run out, it’s over. Sorry you’ve waited, but you are out of luck, my hungry friend.
The 2013 Elite Series campaign is nearly underway, and all 100 anglers remain tied ... for now. There’s no first place, no last place, and perhaps most significantly, no second place.
During Classic week, I was a late addition to the guest list for the Elite Series Night of Champions banquet; when I arrived at my assigned table, I found myself at dinner with a bass fishing legend and a rising star.
On the heels of the Classic, the talk in the bass blogosphere and in the chat rooms has been about whether Cliff Pace showed the proper emotion when he claimed the title. As expected, the opinions have varied.
On the first day of practice for the 2007 Bassmaster Elite Series tournament on the California Delta, I hopped into the boat of world-beater Kevin VanDam.
Ike might have similar taste in music and clothing to his younger peers, but placed in perspective he’s the grizzled veteran.
