Gerald Spohrer stands a good chance of making his first Bassmaster Elite Series Top 51 cut.
He can thank the service crews for playing a role in getting there.
This morning the Louisiana angler experienced mechanical difficulties with his Mercury outboard while at the boat dock. The Mercury team responded, but so did service techs from Phoenix Boats, Nitro Boats, Yamaha Outboards and other competing brands. Spohrer also fishes from a Bass Cat.
The service crews are the unheralded heroes of the event. Each morning, teams stand at the ready whenever needed. And no matter the brand there always is an all-out assist to get the anglers back on the water and in the game.
