Iím a huge fan of watching the Classic and even a fan of Jorden Lee. However, I think they spread out practice for this event way too much prior to the start. It seems pretty obvious that Lee had nothing good going in practice so he just started over on day one and figured it out in the current conditions. My bet is that if he discovered some developing patterns in practice that he too would have been surprised by how much the fish moved in their time off. Yes, he won fair and square but I really think a lot of it was the luck of having a terrible practice and this is too big of a tournament for that. Iím not talking about the need for adjustments based on conditions, this event proved to me it required a complete restart. Not how I want to see a Classic won. Anyone else think the same?

I think we'd all like to see guys go out there and smash them. It's not overly entertaining to watch the best in the world scratch out 5 fish for 9lbs. That said, it had nothing to do with when they practiced and everything to do with tough conditions. For whatever reason that lake just got tough. If there was a dominate pattern to be had one of those guys would have found it. I guess you could say Jordan Lee found it, it's just not what many of us were hoping for.

Fish don't always cooperate. I think that's what draws most of us to this sport. Just when you think you've got them figured out you get humbled.

I am not fully understanding your issue. Why do they need to have a good practice? Having a bad practice can also be a good thing. Tells you what you thought was was wrong. Lee adapted and put it together on game day. How else would you have liked to have seen it won?

I do not agree at all. If you have fished enough it's about making adjustments and trusting ur gut. Easily said very hard to do. Congrats too Jordan Lee.

Actually it's exactly how I would like to see a classic won. Someone figuring it out basically that day and not from simply repeating practice. There are many really good fishermen that excel simply because they continually spend time on the water continually patterning fish on their lake(like a guide) and then there are really gifted fishermen that can continually adapt to changing lakes and changing patterns(successful tournament anglers). Was some measure of luck involved? His finally "figuring it out at the right time"? Sure, luck will always play a part in fishing...always. Talent/gifting though prevail at this level and I don't think the format or timing of practice "flawed the outcome".

I think that proves he's an even better angler. All of them can fish predictable conditions, but the ones who can really adjust to the fast changing conditions are what separates them.

Congrats to Jordan.

The only flaw with the format is it won't let shmucks like me in.

For real though, I like the format and I like to see guys struggle...then figure it out.
