I’m excited for the upcoming AOY Championship on Mille Lacs and the subsequent Bassmaster Classic Bracket event. The battles for AOY and Classic spots are far from over, and I think the Classic Bracket in particular is going to be balls-to-the-wall exciting with eight anglers competing live for a single spot in March’s big goat rodeo. As they work down to four anglers, and then to two, the pros may sandbag, but they’ll put it all on the line with every valuable cast. Unless I’m missing something, it’s going to be killer from a fan's perspective.
Another phrase I’ve decided that I need to banish from my writing vocabulary: “At some point, he’s going to win a major title.”
By “major title,” I mean Bassmaster Classic champion or Elite Series AOY, but if I focused more heavily on FLW there’s no reason it couldn’t apply to their championship and AOY as well.
