After that first day, I settled down, and I was back to approaching it like one of our regular-season Elite Series events.
As you certainly know by now, the 2015 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by GoPro was a disappointment for me. The problem started at Media Day — the day before competition began — when it was announced that we'd be starting late. You see, my best pattern involved fishing deep early in the morning. The late start meant that my key bite would be over by the time we launched. That was very bad news, and I wasn't happy about it.

As much as I admire Casey and his performance in the Classic, I have to say that I’m disappointed in mine.
