Matt Arey is no newbie when it comes to landing big bass. For 10 years he did it well on the FLW Tour. Using a dip net. Nets are permitted on the FLW Tour but not in B.A.S.S.
It’s been fun watching Arey learn the B.A.S.S. ways which are catching and landing big bass.
“For years I used to laugh and make jokes of the B.A.S.S. boys running around the boat from bow to stern, tiring out a fish,” he said on Bassmaster LIVE.
Look whose laughing now.
“I now have a lot of respect for that and it’s not so funny now. It’s a challenge. But that’s why I came over here. For that and to qualify for what I feel like is the most prestigious tournament in the sport, the Bassmaster Classic.”
