I'm here on the Harris Chain in Florida today for the first day of practice of the Elite Series season. I've been idling and trolling around quite a bit trying to put the finishing touches on my game plan.
On the first day of the 2011 Bassmaster Elite Series tournament on Florida's Harris Chain of Lakes, Grant Goldbeck weighed in one small bass for 1 pound, 1 ounce. If one is the loneliest number — as Three Dog Night once claimed — Goldbeck was in a lonely place, indeed, ranking a dismal 97th out of 99 anglers.
No, I'm not talking about my finish on the Harris Chain. I'm talking about our first Elite Series win going to Shaw Grigsby, one of the nicest guys around.
