Bill Lowen left his home in Brookville, Ind., yesterday and stopped at a lake along the way to fine-tune some equipment and knock some of the fishing rust off.
"I had a really good hunting season this fall and winter and was busier than ever with shows," said Lowen. " That has gotten me absolutely on fire for practice this Friday. I can't wait!"
He said he's hoping for 15 bass this size or better from Grand Lake next week.
