At least 12 pros have won on Guntersville before, and at least one of those winners is in each bucket.
Absent a tornado or some other natural disaster, this one is going to be an absolute slugfest.
ORANGE, Texas – Not being from around here, it only took a few minutes in a boat on the Sabine River Thursday morning for me to realize this isn’t the kind of water I grew up on. I’ve spent countless hours on the Coosa River in Alabama, and I don’t ever remember seeing mullet jump 2 and 3 feet out of the water when they were spooked by a bass boat. But I saw it today as Shaye Baker and I followed Aaron Martens through a narrow canal during the opening round of the Bassmaster Elite at Sabine River Presented by STARK Cultural Venues.
I can’t honestly say how I’m going to do in this week’s season-opening Bassmaster Elite Series event on the Sabine River.
Mark Zona looked at each event this season and predicted what will happen and who will win.
The Sabine River should be a Fantasy Fishing competitor’s worst nightmare — long runs, wads of little fish, and long distances between them with nothing but prop-chewing obstacles to get in the way.
Ott DeFoe’s Bassmaster Classic resume is short, but it is full of top finishes. Although DeFoe has only fished in four Classics, he has amassed a Top 11 finish in every one. A lofty feat for an angler who isn’t 30 years old.
Randy Howell, a man of strong Christian faith, knows that winning the 2014 Classic gave him a platform to reach many people.
Tommy Sanders has graced the airwaves for more than a quarter century, but it’s never been about him.
In practice, my quality was real good but the fish weren’t schooled up at all.
