After a good day of practice on the Red River, Mike Iaconelli is feeling cautiously optimistic about his chances in the 2012 Bassmaster Classic.
I know some of you are going to think I’m playing a head game with the other anglers when I say this but I’ll tell you I had a tough practice. It’s colder than I expected and the fish aren’t where I thought they’d be at this time of the year. It was a real surprise.
The Bassmaster Classic is an event like no other. It’s about catching fish in a short period of time under pressure — mental pressure, physical pressure and fishing pressure.
This week we’ll talk about how to watch the weigh-in — what to look for and what it means when you see it.
Last week we talked about the river conditions we might face on the Red River for the 2012 Bassmaster Classic and what you should be looking for there. This week we’ll discuss practice and how it really works.

I don’t have much insightful information about bass fishing to offer today. I’ve been sick for a couple of weeks and really haven’t done much of anything, at least not anything useful.
I’ve been asked several times about who might win the Classic this year, other than me, of course. I’m going to give you four guys who I think you should watch.
When I think about the future of professional bass fishing, I think about more than just the business framework of the industry or the state of the fishing economy.
