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.
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.
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.
