The season's over, and going into that last tournament already knowing that I wasn't going to make the Classic changed my perspective.
The 2010 Bassmaster Elite Series is in the books. I didn't have a very good event in Oklahoma. Finishing 56th out of 93 isn't my idea of a good time. And I didn't qualify for the postseason. That's not where I want to be, either. Still, all is not lost. I'm a solid qualifier for the 2011 Bassmaster Classic. I'm proud of that.
