A question of quality?

12:34 am EDT, Aug 13, 2014

Bret Reid of Ohio B.A.S.S. Nation shared two photos from practice and asks, "Will this quality will be good enough at the B.A.S.S. Nation Northern Divisional on Lake Monroe?"


I suspect that what Bret is really doing is telling you, Northern Division competitors, to watch out for Ohio. But that's pure speculation.


To everyone else, Bret says to watch the weigh-in live, beginning at 2:45 p.m. ET, right here on (Read: To see how many more quality bass Ohio pulls out of Lake Monroe.)


And I second that.
