And they're off!

 

That was one of the fastest, shortest take-offs in the history of the Elites.

 

These 12 anglers were primed to go. And B.A.S.S. was primed to let them go after a day off.

 

So it went quick at the dock. And a couple hundred yards later John Crews was at his first stop. He's literally fishing across the creek from the take off. He busted a big bag here Saturday to make the final.

 

Interestingly enough, just 800 yards up the creek and within sight is Rick Clunn.

 

This little creek could get hot.
