Evers seems relaxed

Edwin Evers is extremely composed for someone who entered the day leading the Bassmaster Classic. He's calm, cool and collected, taking his time and being very methodical in his approach. I've watched him dig around in his bait box and rod locker, and he's taking his time and not rushing.


Evers is somewhat known for a distaste for crowds and the media attention that come with the type of scenario he's fishing today. But he has been uncharacteristically inviting to the boats around him this morning, announcing when he's moving and explaining what he's doing so spectators and folks like photographer Jerry Cunningham and I can get what we need out here on the water.


He politely asked everyone out here within earshot to turn off their depth finders just a few minutes ago.
