As most of you know by now, I lost control of my boat and ended up on the bank during the Sabine River Challenge.
I’m not sure there’s another sport in existence that is as equipment dependent as professional bass fishing. Everything has to work or you’re at a serious disadvantage, and everything includes the newest forms of technology.
I’m glad that Cliff Pace won the 2013 Bassmaster Classic and I’ll tell you why.
Today went about as well as I could have expected. I knew this morning that the only way I had a chance with this thing was to bag 25 or 30 pounds.
This is a Bassmaster Classic. It’s the biggest bass fishing event anywhere.
If you could imagine how a first day of a Bassmaster Classic would go, this would be it. I couldn’t be happier. There was a good bite in the morning and then another good bite in the afternoon.
It’s Thursday, the last day for prep before the Classic starts. It’s been a fairly busy day but nothing got out of control.
The final day to-do list includes two things; I accomplished the first, and made a small start toward the second.
It’s Tuesday night. Mike’s getting ready for the last day of practice tomorrow and then needs to go to bed early so they asked me to give you a look at the Classic through my eyes. I don’t know if I’m a typical wife or not but here goes…
The trip out here was uneventful. We arrived on Wednesday evening, set the camper up and settled down. I spent Thursday getting ready for practice and then it was off to the races.
