Obviously, Tuesday’s press release from the MLF crew created a frenzy among fishing media and fans. My phone, email and Facebook accounts have been blowing up since then with questions about what I know and what I think about the state of the fishing world from here on forward. More than one person has asked “When are you going to write about it?”
For reasons that I’m not sure that I understand 100%, Andy Morgan has elected to fish five only Bassmaster Opens in his career, the last of them in 2009. I guess he seems to have it pretty good over at FLW. He’s always in the race for AOY and probably clears enough money to support his hunting habit with cash to spare.
Another FLW season is underway, and obviously Mark Rose should be thrilled with his victory on Guntersville. For an Arkansas river rat, he seems to have found a true comfort zone on the Tennessee River impoundments, regardless of the time of year. While he’s established a very preliminary lead in the AOY race, anyone with serious designs on that title knows that it flows directly through the current 7th place angler, Andy Morgan.
