I just received this note from Tournament Director Trip Weldon.
"Interesting side bar on Jason Christie. After he tied up his boat before take off Jason walked up to his truck to get several tackle inserts (see photo above). Looked like hard baits. I asked him did he forget his tackle. His response was I have a few ideas this morning. We all know what gut instincts mean in this game."
Gut instincts make legends of mere men in this sport. And what Christie is doing right now is nothing short of legendary. He's threatening the greatest come-from-behind win in the history of the Elite Series.
Trusting your gut is one of the hardest things to do in this sport. Winning $200,000 in the last 3 months based on that gut makes it a lot easier to listen to. That's what Christie's done and it appears he aims to add another 100K today.
