#11915, "RE: The Big Hammer still hasn't won an elite series eve..." In response to In response to 0
Last year Nico and I went as observers for the Elite event at the Delta. What I learned was that these guys fish at a different level than me. They don't just get on the water and fish, they attack.
There's no sitting in the bottom of the boat re-rigging. There's no idling around thinking what to do next. Food is something you scarf in the 5mph zone or don't eat at all. It's just pure rapid fire attack fishing for the entire day.
You could think of me like a high school baseball player who can hit the long ball here and there. These guys are in the show, playing full speed, 9 innings, run, hit, field. I'm light years away from where they're at and I have total respect for what they do.
It would be cool if one of them picked up the Big Hammer and notched a $100k win on it Potential is there. Just like some day someone will win one on the MS Slammer. They fish enough wide open bite events on great bodies of water that it could happen.
