Not everybody's into bass fishing

With the intensity of an Elite Series event, and the crowd at yesterday's weigh-in - despite the rain - sometimes we forget that not everyone on this lake is into bass fishing. Observers around Skeet Reese just got a reminder of that.

 

The sea of spectator boats had to part as a white-haired man piloting an older model party barge came back into the creek, near where Reese is fishing.

"What's everybody doing back here?" the man said, as he eased his boat through the crowd.

 

Nobody seemed to know quite what to say to him.

 

I guess he realized that folks weren't too happy with him, so he added, "Just trying to get to my dock."

 

As he has every right to do.
