The big outdoors news of the weekend was the Bassmaster Classic in the Louisiana delta. Of local interest was that Kansan Brent Chapman was in the hunt for a coveted championship heading into Sunday’s final day of fishing.
After Saturday’s weigh-in he was solidly in second-place.
The prize would have been $500,000, not to mention obtaining near rock star status by winning the biggest event in fishing.
Chapman gave it a good go, and did well, but ended up in fifth.
Another Sports Show is passed and a big “thanks” goes to all who came by The Eagle’s booth and voted for the winners in our Great Outdoors Photo Contest.
Sorry we were in a booth that nearly took GPS coordinates to find. It was due to a mix-up at The Eagle. The Sports Show people did their best to get us in a good location.
Those who made it to the booth seemed to enjoy the display. Hopefully I came out with some good ideas for articles and gained some more online followers for the electronic outdoors page, the weekly e-letter and this blog.
