Rick Clunn's reputation as the Zen Master is partially based on the perception that he's keyed into all the natural elements in his surroundings. That he can feel and smell and hear things that affect the fishing.
We just saw a little evidence of that. After Rick caught the 4-pounder, a spectator boat got a little too close for comfort. Barely looking up from the fish Rick respectfully ask the spectator to move back and explained why with a wave of his hand.
Then we we're having a quiet discussion with Matt Dennis, Bobby's son about the RC3 crank bait and how Rick was using it today. We're sitting 75 yards away from Rick, barely talking above a whisper, and he interjects into our conversation, "No it's the RC4."
