Before this year’s season starts, I want to take one last look back at the Classic. There are some things I want to say, things I think matter. Some are pretty but others not so much so.
We’re going to talk about my Classic at some point, but not right now.
Well, you know the story: I won’t be fishing tomorrow. I missed the cut in a tiebreaker. I’d love to tell you that it’s OK but I have to admit that it hurts.
I’m not especially happy with how things went today but I will say that it’s a fishing tournament and this is the way things go sometimes.
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.
If you’re going to be a knowledgeable fan with the ability to understand things beyond the standings, water depth is the first thing you should be thinking about.
