Is it Friday already? Hmm it's March as well.
IKE Meltdown Eyewitness:
I was down in the cities for the monthly Fishers of Men meeting yesterday. Our speaker was Mark Schutz Fishing Guide and Midwest Director of the Fishers of Men National Tournament Trail. His wife Nacole is the Minnesota East Division Director. Mark was in Florida last week and was an on the water eyewitness to the Bassmasters Classic Meltdown of Mike Iaconelli; in fact he had a sound bite, as a witness, on Sportscenter and BassCenter. Mark says that he was edited to make his remarks seem more sympathetic to Ike than he really was. Apparently Ike carried on worse than what was shown and Mark totally agreed that the DQ was the right call. He said that up until that point Ike had really been pretty tame in his celebrations with one mini-yell after he caught one around 4lbs.
Anyway, it was interesting to hear about his experiences. He said that 2006 Bassmasters Classic Champion Luke Clausen was fishing agonizingly slowly with the worm. Mark claimed, "it was the most boring fishing I've ever watched in my life." They did see him land a couple and break off a couple of good fish.
