I read last years' Bassmasters Classic winner placed dozens of brush piles in the Classic's tournament lake - Lake Hartwell. This year Edwin is apparently doing the same as reported on BassFan. The comments below are from classic contenders James Watson and Edwin Evers which I thought were funny.
> Watson said he came across Evers planting brush piles in the back of a cove from a pontoon boat on one of his pre-practice days. "I came up behind him and I wasn't in my own boat, but I have a distinctive voice and he knew who it was," Watson said. "I asked him if he had the proper permits for that and he said, 'No, I don't have any permits, but I know I can throw a Horny Toad in this stuff."
Truth be told a lot of money is won in Texas on planted brush but it is not really mentioned too much.
