Being a part of the first Bassmaster Classic Bracket on the Niagara River was a pretty neat deal. It was cool to be a part of something that was sort of unfolding right before our eyes every day. The unique elements of a limited practice, a small field of eight pros, real-time scoring, having a scoring official in our boats and having our rounds streamed live to the internet were all part of an intense new format, never before seen on the Elites Series.
Spring can be an exciting time for bass fishermen because this is the season when we have our best access to the biggest fish of the year. With fish moving up, or getting ready to move up, throughout much of the southern states, anglers are getting ready to match wits with wily bass and that’s very often a pretty challenging deal.
