Try as we might, we "wordsmiths" don't put things in as great a perspective as the anglers who are out here walking the walk, talking the talk, so to speak. So I'll just offer you this exchange, a snippet from a conversation I had this morning from no less an authority than 2012 Bassmaster Classic winner Chris Lane. We caught up for a moment to discuss this tournament and the huge expanse of water these guys are attempting to cover this week.
Me: "Chris, things were a bit rough for most of you guys out there yesterday. Do you plan on changing things, up, running to a different spot?"
Chris Lane: "Running? Yeah, I think I gave new meaning to running. I went from seeing bass and alligators to redfish and dolphins. This place is vast."
