Joel Baker is new on the Elite Series this year and is bringing something new to the sport by befriending (and even kissing!) practice bass in hopes of getting on their good side. We don't yet know if this interspecies lovefest will pay off for Joel, but if it does he's going to be kissing a lot of bass across the country this year.
Thanks for the pictures, Joel!
JTodd Tucker, who calls Lake Seminole his home waters, went out a few weeks ago before the off-limits period and caught this beast.
"For me, it is proving to be putting out some pigs," said Tucker. "With warmer temperatures approaching, I see this tournament as having one of the biggest catches ever."
Now, all the pros are practicing on Seminole, so we'll see over the next few days just how accurate his prediction is.
...and setting up for the Elite Series event on Lake Seminole. Tomorrow I meet with the Mayor...at his pharmacy where he is the Pharmacist. Got to love that.
