Whoopin'

In January 1977, Dave Gliebe put on one of the great tournament performances of all time right here at Okeechobee. He won the ABF (American Bass Fisherman) Hurst Open with a three-day catch (21 total bass) weighing 95-3. Second place was Roland Martin (fishing in this week's Wild Card) with 52-10. That's a margin of victory of more than 42 pounds and the biggest I've ever heard of in a national tournament.
