For the 12 Bassmaster Elite Series pros competing here, Lake Jordan has a little bit of everything – shallow grass, creek channels, islands, boat docks, underwater humps, deep ledges, brushpiles, current, no current and, yes, women in bikinis.
I went to interview Elite pro Morizo Shimizu, one problem. He only speaks Japanese. So we needed someone who could speak in him, and then turn around and speak in me. Seigo Saito, a photographer for Bass, turned out to be that person.
