Jason Christie toys with a smallmouth that he saw on his electronics. He gave a great smallmouth seminar on being persistent and keeping his bait in the strike zone even after missing a bite.
There were numerous Elite Series anglers that had intense battles with smallmouth at the side of the boat. Some came off, but these close calls ended on a good note as Brock Mosley, Jason Christie and Bradley Roy all managed to land their fish.
On the final day of the Advance Auto Parts Bassmaster Elite, Mark Daniels Jr. hooked what he thought was a giant smallmouth, then he thought it was a walleye and eventually he realized it was a massive Muskie.
