With tough fishing like we have right now on Shelbyville, there’s opportunity to make up ground, but it won’t be easy because the fish are small.
We don’t know who’s going to be in the top four of the standings after today, but whoever’s in the bottom four is going to have his work cut out for him.
Remind me never to doubt the angling acumen of Ott DeFoe.
If you haven’t glanced at BASSTrakk recently, you may be surprised to know that Ott DeFoe and Edwin Evers are first and second (very unofficially) in the standings.
Everything around here seems to have a connection to Abraham Lincoln or the Chicago Bears.
In a format like we have here at All-Star Week it makes sense that the guys who always seem to catch ‘em — the guys with the highest bassing averages — will have an advantage.
So which all-star has the most experience in an all-star or postseason format?
Ott DeFoe told me yesterday that he thought 3 3/4 pounds per day on Shelbyville might be enough to make the top four and advance to the semifinals on Lake Decatur.
Back in the day, Rick Clunn and Larry Nixon had big reputations for figuring out successful patterns quickly and executing them efficiently. It’s why they won so many Bassmaster Classics.
