Ummm, yeah, I have no idea what I'm writing about. I don't know squat about fishing, let alone competitive fishing. I fully admit all of those things.

But I am a curious soul and I have a fish. Princess Fishy Fish, a goldfish (as you can guess, my daughter had naming rights). She's gold and white and swims in a bowl. ( Read Bassmaster Classic 2011 more... )
