Forty-four-year-old Alton Jones has been tournament bass fishing for over two decades now. He has thoroughly experienced how gruelling that can be, especially a four-day, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. event, like those on the Bassmaster Elite Series. There are three practice days before the tournaments start.

Grant Goldbeck got a lesson is just how good the smallmouth bass fishing can be during practice this week at Lake Erie. As he prepared for the 10th of 11 Bassmaster Elite Series tournaments this season the Empire Chase presented by Farmer's Insurance Goldbeck caught a 4-pound smallmouth on a bare hook.
When Alton Jones first visited Lake Hartwell in December to practice for February's Bassmaster Classic, he hardly fished at all. Instead, seeing that the impoundment was 12 feet low, he spent his time with a video camera, filming potential structure and cover that might, if the lake level were to rise, become prime bass holding areas. He marked them with his GPS, and catalogued more than 130 locations.
