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.
The connection between success and popularity is an interesting one and very evident in the world of bass fishing.
Twelve anglers is not a lot for a B.A.S.S. tournament, but it is enough.
Lake Shelbyville looks tough, but that's the hurdle 12 all stars have to stare down if they're going to advance in Toyota Trucks All-Star Week.
