For Skeet Reese, this offseason included a special fishing trip.It was all set in motion on May 29, when Philadelphia Phillies ace and eventual National League Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay threw a perfect game .
Lay Lake make for tough fishing, but sun improved the bite for many of the contenders on the second official day of practice.

Skeet Reese wants to turn tables on Boyd Duckett, 'pathetic' winning catch in 2007 Classic
The Jones Clan is in Alabama now, and we're getting settled in for the Classic. I'm making final preparations for practice, which starts today, and they're a little different this year.
Overall, I'm really excited. I think BASS did a good job of putting us on premier bass fisheries at the right times. And this schedule should help me fish to my strengths. How could I not be excited about something like that?
Classic contenders reach Lay Lake for practice, they will have a major decision to make: focus on fishing the main lake or run up the river.
