Evers fishes wide open

I've followed Edwin Evers several times in tournaments and am always amazed at how hard he fishes. When other competitors might be taking in the scenery, Evers is wide open — in both his fishing and boating. He's always safe when piloting his Nitro, but he's either on the trolling motor or has the Hot Foot pegged.


Sometimes he'll pick up a rod and make a single cast then toss it down and feverishly begin throwing another bait. If you didn't know what an even-keeled guy he is, you'd think he was crazy, possibly possessed. It's a pleasure to follow him, if not a bit taxing.
