Bass Champs just held a one day tournament where the winner had 5 bass for 39.66 lbs, those are the kind of numbers over 4 days that could break Dean Roja's record. 30th Place had 5 fish for 20.48 lbs and did not cash a check. That is just plain unbelievable!
On a positive not, I just recently booked airline tickets to spend 4 days on Amistad in early March, during the Basssmasters Elite Series Tournament. I plan to post observation of the tournament as well my quest for lunker bass.
