Congrats to Lee Iaconelli!

That guy has been fishing his heart out and it finally clicked for him! I'm glad to see that he won even if he's from New Jersey.

Poor Gary Klein. 2nd doens't have to mean 1st loser.

Sure wish I could be there someday. Maybe if I hide Wendy in the rod locker? I'm sure she'd fit! LOL! :wink:

Congratulations to Iaconelli! Just chill out a bit. A bit too much playing to the camera IMO.

How about that 63 yr old Roland Martin? Son! (WTG on the Pick Samario) Heck he's older than me.

And Mark Kile, born in Picacho Peak, AZ I think so he's a native Arizonan, coming in 6th after winning Rookie of the Year on the Tour. Congratulations to Mark on a great year.

Some other stuff that stuck while watching and reading about the event:

Deion Sanders a BassMaster? :shock:

Saw on SportsCenter one of the competitors (Skeet Reese I think) got so excited he stepped into his open livewell when going up on to the stage to weigh-in! He fell onto those steps and I thought he could have broke his leg.

If Barkley the dog can ride in the boat with Menendez, what's it going to be next year? Anybody own a boa constrictor?? Does Alice Cooper bass fish?

After 2 days of fishing, the leader had 27 something pounds and the last place guy had 1 something pound. I'll remember that next time I finish last in a tourney. It happened to a guy who qualified for the BassMaster Classic!! It happens to the best of them.

I thought Iaconelli made an ass out of himself and everybody there as well.... I noticed he didnt get the real big Standing obation like Kline did yesterday either

Kline had a rough day first being shot at then an airboat.

I would have liked to see either
Kilne or Harold Allen as the winner.. They are the guys with great demeaner and respect.


just before Jay yelas gave Iaconelli that trouphy you can tell he was a little disapointed in giving to Iaconelli, I think he really wanted to give it to Kline....

The Dog on the boat was a joke. So if I make it some year do you think they will let me bring my lake pleasant burro's? Or what about someone thats wants to bring thier wife along..

I also saw Deon what a joke when he was in mexico....

I also didnt like the sports caster for ESPN he Sounds like a freiken Idiot. They didnt show enough of Denny brower

Fish Fishburn is an asum anouncer also...

Del, your post echoes my observations to a tee (Denny's, too). It tears me up to see B.A.S.S. pander to try to fit so many markets. Present day country music lost me doing the crossover thing; Lord help us if that's what they try to do to B.A.S.S. :roll:

I must say, however, that his discusion on staying focussed was very good. I can easily drop focus during slow periods on the water - I'm working on it more and more. That was great to see this example. It was slow - he remained intense - it paid off with 7 minutes left to get the hog. That's some great stuff for a great event!

I'm not justifying anything, by any means, but let me tell you some of those ol' boys down in them parts are as much a part of the eco-system as the gators, fish, and critters that live with them. These areas and waterways are exactly the areas their ancestors settled in centuries ago and they feel it's theirs (I suppose). They are content living remote and live off these waters - they see it as their home whether it is or not. You just would not believe their skills at hunting and fishing. They don't appreciate outside influence. They don't experience progress in their surroundings (like we see daily). When you get to know some of these folk they're the nicest, warmest, people on earth - just don't double-cross them because they never forget. I hope such problems don't hamper New Orleans from landing the Classic again in the future. Months ago we were planning on vacationing back home at this time to see the Classic - now, I'm regretting not doing it.

What BASS doesn't tell are the stories about some of those swamp folks went out of there way to protect a Texas angler in the Tourney that was cught in the middle of a lightning storm. He wasn't allowed to leave his boat (or be disqualified) so they made a place under their pier to protect him until the lightning stopped. Jay Yellas also ran into some peolpe in a similar fashion Saturday. The gun shot, I'm assuming, was a warning shot for Klein. Them folks in those parts don't miss their targets too much if ya know what I mean. This stuff sounds crazy to most city folk but to these folks in the bayou it's a way of life!

ROFLMAO!!! Bill, if you could just give me fair warning if I ever get too close to your boat - I mean before you start shootin'! LOL! J/K. :lol: I've met some pretty good people from those parts and I've learned a few things from them: 1. They're some good people who value important things in life - not petty material things. 2. They're willing to help a friend - always. 3. Probably the most important thing I've learned about them, is NOT to add hot sauce to their gumbo until you've tasted how hot it is in the fist place... :!: :!:

Sorry guys, I only saw the last part of the weigh in. I didn't get to see Iaconelli make an @ss of himself. You know how it goes.......It takes all kinds. I have to give credit where credit's due though. He won and congrats to him. What's this about his wife not being there, but his mom an aunt were there?
