Ready for action

Evers is still out of photo range but he's approaching quickly. Even though the breeze is making it brisk on the water, Evers just pulled off his rain jacket. Was he making sure his tournament jersey shows up in photos? If so, that's pretty savvy.

Evers is in fourth going into today's competition, capping off a great year. Out of nine regular season Elite events since he won the Classic, Evers has made the Top 50 cut in all but one -- the Bassmaster Elite at Bull Shoals/Norfork, where he was 85th.
