Just got back from watching the Elite Series weigh-in live in Union Springs, N.Y. The big bass are really the star attraction of bass fishing. Hate to admit this, but it didn't bother me one bit that a lot of my favorite pros weren't there. What got the crowd excited was seeing numerous catches of gorgeous big bass. It ain't about the pros - it's all about the bass!
I'm gradually getting familiar with the new pros and I'm sure I'll have some new favorites, but seeing big bass caught on my home lake was what it was all about.
