If you look up "Consistent Career" in the dictionary, it would probably say "Clifford Pirch's Elite Series resume."
That's simply put because Pirch has made the Bassmaster Classic every year he's fished the Bassmaster Elite Series. Every Classic since 2014, but his hopes were slowing fading after Santee Cooper. He wasn't sitting in a good position (58th) and was about 35 points from the last Classic spot. Pirch did well on a tough Chickamauga on Day 1 (21st, 4 for 11-0). He is backing it up today thus far. He pulled into 49th in AOY and was just 15 points or so from the Classic with half of Chickamauga and a full Lake Fork event left. Pirch just got his kicker bite on Day 2 and simply said "That just happened."
Pirch's Classic hopes aren't dashed yet, he is making a run at Chickamauga to close the gap entirely if he can.
