Fishing on the Bassmaster Elite Series is a tremendous learning experience. The most important thing that I have learned this year is that I have to fish my strengths to be successful.
I want to say congratulations to everyone. Boyd Duckett, the winner on Oneida, the 2013 Bassmaster Classic qualifiers and the 2012 Bassmaster Elite Series Rookie of the year, Brandon Card, all did one heck of a job this year. But, in truth, this week is all about Brent Chapman, the 2012 Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year.
Several pros even bet the moon in Toyota Trucks All-Star Week.
"Dare to fail" philosophy works well for 26-year-old Brandon Card, the 2012 Bassmaster Elite Series Rookie of the Year.
The final weigh-in at the 2012 Ramada Championship proved to be a nail-biter!
