Gerald Spohrer struggled in his rookie season on the Elite Series, finishing 87th in the AOY standings. That surprised those who had followed his career. But he has shown his true colors this season. The Gonzales, La., angler came into the AOY Championship ranked 19th, with a Classic berth assured.
But he’s not slowing down. Spohrer was 6th entering today, and he’s has had a good morning. He just culled up. But he said the best should be coming soon.
“My better fish don’t bite until after noon,” he said.
Spohrer came into the AOY with a game plan of simply ensuring he didn’t lose ground in the rankings. He’s on pace to gain a little.
