I've been operating under the assumption that this was a three-horse race. I couldn't be more wrong.
After looking at BASSTrakk, it's obvious that a big fish could put any of the top eight into the winner's circle.
All of those guys have decent limits, and the weights are close enough that a 6-pounder could change everything for whoever catches it.
Looking at the sticks in that group, we are well accustomed to seeing them do it.
This dadgum derby just gets more compelling by the minute.
