I really try to avoid using clichés as much as possible when I write about my experiences, but you just have to throw one down every once in awhile. One cliché that I hear all the time goes something like this: “Man, this sport can be so humbling sometimes. Just when you think you have things figured out, you go out and bomb.”
That one rang very true for me at the recent Lake Guntersville EverStart, where despite the fact that it is now technically considered my “home lake,” it turned out to be one of the most frustrating and disappointing multi-day tournaments I’ve fished in years.
I finished 88th.
