Out of my 9 years here I’ve only had a couple seasons where I could fish the Opens without the high pressure of the points race to make the @bass_nation Elites. It feels great to fish how I like and give it everything to try for a win and make the Bassmaster Classic, the ultimate dream for every tournament angler.
It’s been great to have a few Aussies along for the ride and show them why and what I love about this sport! It’s been a interesting practice on the James river, it feels a little like home as I’ve fished every Open here since I moved to the US. Alarm is set for 3.30am and we are rigged and ready to get after them. Boat 21 with a 2.15 check, let’s go!!
