He isn't taking anyone's spot but I sure would like to see him take a bunch of their money. The rumors of his demise have been greatly exaggerated!
Is this a senior "get off my lawn" post?
Yep. A lot of those on here.
They donít forget how to fish or canít keep up with new techniques; itís the stamina that goes. Fishing hardcore 2.5 practice days then 2-4 days of tournament on top of long travel and doing this multiple times a month for 6-9 months is what gets the older guys. Not to mention bad waves beating them up and all the off weeks the guys still spend fishing to stay in tune. Throw in sponser travel and commitments and you start to see why older folks canít hang. Itís survival of the fittest and that usually isnít old guys. Heck iím mid 30ís and in decent shape and I can tell you I couldnít do it and still be mentally engaged throughout.
But they still know how to fish and can win any given Sunday. Just not most Sundays.
