Both Peter Thliveros and Ken Cook have accepted their invitations to fish the 2006 CITGO Bassmaster Elite Series, a fishing league that will elevate the sport to a new level.
Denny Brauer is well on the road to recovery after having back surgery to relieve him from suffering a painful sciatic nerve problem.
"It was the landmark accomplishment of my career," said 1991 champion Ken Cook. "It was the achievement that brought me to the top of the mountain professionally and has made a big difference in the rest of my life."
Brauer is recovering from back surgery earlier this month aimed at correcting a painful Sciatic nerve problem caused by a bone spur and a calcium deposit that had combined to virtually pinch the nerve off.
