Pipkens is the marathon man

Chad Pipkens is the only angler at the Classic Bracket who also fished last week at the Opens Championship. He had five days of practice there, and then two days of competition. At the Bracket he’s had one day of practice and three days of competition so far. That’s 11 days of fishing in 13 days. But that’s not a problem for the young Michigander. “I usually do well when I fished a tournament the previous week,” he said. “I just to get need four more fish this morning.”
