It's no secret that this is the week when we send everyone who knows how to use a camera out on the water with the Classic anglers. This means you get to see as much of the event as we can show you, and it also means we have a mountain of photos to sort and publish for you here on bassmaster.com. I'm going to try each day here in the blog to highlight a few that may get lost in the shuffle. Yesterday's practice gave us 5 galleries from David Hunter Jones, Darren Jacobson, and James Overstreet.

At breakfast this morning, I ran into Christian Cherry, the 4-year-old son of Hank Cherry. After listening to his exceptional Dave Mercer imitation, I asked for his prediction of daddy's winning weight.

Classic XXXVIII (38), was held Feb. 22-24, 2008 in Lake Hartwell, S.C. When Alton Jones motored back into Lake Hartwell's Portman Marina, he was pretty sure he didn't have enough fish in his livewell to win the Bassmaster Classic.
Sometimes you don’t see the whole picture, because there isn’t one.
