Why my pro days are behind me: 113 degrees

Recommended Posts

I know the US Open bass tournament on Lake Mead will offer its own daily accounts beginning Monday evening, but I went over there for a couple of days of practice to get a feel for what they are seeing.

Amazing difference from 5 years ago, now the population seems 70 percent smallmouth. The grass beds, which were just patches last year, are thick enough to walk on. But what a grind to go hard all day in what is unseasonable heat. These kind of temperatures are usually done by earlier in the summer.

Spent a day with Clunn and his family, and a second day with former winner Rich Tauber, while chatting with several others. Clunn, the 4-time Classic winner said it again. "I tell people everywhere I go, the US Open is the hardest tournament in fishing there is to win."

And hey, I don't even work for the host outfit anymore. 8-)
