The 2013 Elite Series campaign is nearly underway, and all 100 anglers remain tied ... for now. There’s no first place, no last place, and perhaps most significantly, no second place.
During Classic week, I was a late addition to the guest list for the Elite Series Night of Champions banquet; when I arrived at my assigned table, I found myself at dinner with a bass fishing legend and a rising star.
On the heels of the Classic, the talk in the bass blogosphere and in the chat rooms has been about whether Cliff Pace showed the proper emotion when he claimed the title. As expected, the opinions have varied.
On the first day of practice for the 2007 Bassmaster Elite Series tournament on the California Delta, I hopped into the boat of world-beater Kevin VanDam.
A tournament angler’s stock in trade is looking forward. Reminiscing about lost fish and lost opportunities doesn’t affect the scale one iota.
When did the modern era of professional bass fishing begin?
When 30-year-old aspiring bass pro Jonathan Carter launches his Bass Cat on the first day of the 2013 Bassmaster Classic, he’ll be breaking new ground.
Unless Chris Lane wins the upcoming Bassmaster Classic, the next few weeks mark the end of his year in the sun.
I’m sure that if you asked Kevin VanDam to name the single most important fish of his B.A.S.S. career, he’d have a hard time nailing it down.
When the Elites kick off the this year at the Sabine River, Denny Brauer will also likely be in Texas, but at his new home in Del Rio rather than in the town of Orange.
