One more chance

Sep 24, 2014

Update from Bassmaster Championship....there is still a chance.....finishing 16th place, after weighing in 37.6 lbs...still one man out of the Classic....hopefully the next man in! The Southern Open on Lake Norman is the last chance to get a Classic seat...if one of the top 39 Elite Anglers win, or if an angler fishing -that has not fished all 3 Southern Opens wins....I am in! If all goes right, THAT IS THE PLAN.
