Brent Chapman, the current leader in the Toyota Tundra B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year standings, wasn’t real enthused about the results of his first day of practice for the Lake Michigan Elite Series, which gets underway Thursday out of Green Bay, Wis.
Brent Chapman – Practice Day 1 6/25/2012
It was very hard to get around and very hard to fish. It reminded me of Chicago when we were there for the Classic (in 2000) and looking across the Indiana border and knowing that’s where we needed to be fishing but not being able to fish it.
To me, it was very windy (today) and tough to fish. I was not overly impressed. I eliminated a lot of water today.
From what little time I spent up (at the boundary line) today, it seems like it’ll be crowded. I saw 20 boats in a 1-mile stretch. So far, it’s not similar to Erie at all, but that’s why we have 3 days of practice to get it figured out.
