MN Bass Fishing Blogger Headed to Fedration Nation National Tournament

Current Bass Pundit Minnesocold Bass Bloggers Derby 2011 leader Andy Nitchals of MN bass fishing blog Andy's Bass Blog just finished in 1st Place for the MN team at the 2011 B.A.S.S. Federation Nation Northern Divisional at the Mississippi River - Ft. Madison, IA, Aug 10 - 12, 2011. The 1st Place Finish means Andy will represent MN at the 2011 B.A.S.S. Federation Nation Championship Nov. 3-5, 2011, on the Ouachita River out of Monroe, La. If Andy can be the top angler in his division in that tournament, he will earn a birth to the 2012 Bassmaster Classic on the Red River.

I think the odds are probably against Andy making the classic as I don't think he's a river rat. In the Divisional on the Mississippi he finished in 11th Place.

He might have a good shot. He finished high and on a river. Besides, not all the other Northern guys are necessarily river guys either.

I'm definitely no river rat but my last 2 river tourneys I finished 2nd and 11th so maybe I'm getting the hang of it. I'll be giving it my all when I get down there!
