My one that got away happened during a 2007 Bassmaster Major at Oneida and Onondaga Lakes. It was the first round of the finals, so there were only 12 of us fishing the whole course. I had qualified fifth by throwing a 1/2-ounce football jig on Oneida Lake. After Oneida, we moved the whole tournament over to Onondaga Lake, which none of us had ever been to before.
One of the mantras that I live by is that preparation is more important than game day. Usually that means putting in your time on the water scouting before cutoffs and then buckling down during the actual practice days.
It's been about a week now since the Classic has been over. I have a few more thoughts about it that I'd like to share.
