I’d love to tell you that I had a good Bassmaster Fantasy Fishing showing at Toledo Bend, but to remain consistent with my season thus far, my picks tanked.
I’ve thought about this topic for a few days now. I wanted to be sure I wanted to write about it. The thinking is over. I do want to write about it. If we don’t get this out in the open and figure out a way to deal with it our sport is going to suffer — bad.
