Bob Knight speaks at Industry Breakfast

Hall of Fame basketball coach Bob Knight, keynote speaker at the annual ICAST Industry breakfast this morning, acknowledged two legendary anglers from the bass fishing world as having had a profound impact on him and the sport of fishing: Bill Dance and Jerry McKinnis, co-owner of B.A.S.S. Knight said one of the achievements of which he’s most proud is the fact that he has appeared on more “Fishing Hole” programs with McKinnis.

He drew laughter from the breakfast crowd at the Orange County Convention Center when he said he prefers fishing over basketball because “I’ve never been fishing yet when I’ve been bothered by referees or sportswriters. I’ll take fishing over basketball any day.”
