Editor's note: Jamie Hartman's Marshal for Saturday, Paul Pest, sent in this anecdote.
On Saturday, Jamie needed a good fish to insure he was going to make the cut. He kept saying “Come to Big Daddy, come to Big Daddy” trying to coax another fish into the boat. I told him I wasn’t comfortable calling him “Big Daddy” but if he caught a 10 pounder, I’d do it. He asked for an 8. I countered with 9.
He landed the 5-02 within the last 10 minutes of fishing. He sits down behind the wheel and looks at me and said “Well?”.
Yeah, I gave in and said “Nice catch Big Daddy!”
Big Daddy put them in the boat today! Outstanding job Jamie!!!!
