Carhartt College Bass champion Matt Lee of Auburn University took a few minutes Saturday to reflect on his Classic experience.
"It's unreal," he said. "Takeoff is like nothing else. Then you get to your first spot and don't catch a fish for 20 minutes and start thinking everybody else is slamming them and you start thinking you couldn't catch fish in a stock pond. It's real overwhelming. But an awesome experience. There's nothing like it."
