Pete Gluszek didn't just find some magical success on the James River overnight, but rather his entire fishing background helped him get to this point.
Gluszek fishes multiple days per week on the Upper Chesapeake Bay, where the Elite Series will compete in 2018, and has extensive knowledge on places like the Potomac as well.
In his three trips to the James River for past Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Opens he has finished 27th (2012), 6th (2013), 82nd (2016) and holds the lead going into today's final day.
When asked about his Top 12 back in 2013 he mentioned he was doing a totally different pattern down in the Chickahominy River and that he switched it up this time around.
The 3-time Classic qualifier is trying to notch his fourth today. Only time will tell, but with 4 small keepers he knows one big bite will mean the world to him today.
He fished his past Classics on Logan Martin (1997), Louisiana Delta (1999) and at Grand Lake (2013).
