B.A.S.S. PROS COMPLETE FINAL
PRACTICE FOR GREAT OUTDOOR GAMES
LAKE PLACID, N.Y. - July 13, 2001 - Ten of the 11 B.A.S.S. anglers competing in the
ESPN Great Outdoor Games presented by Jeep took advantage of
another day of practice on Friday. Tim Horton, however, was forced
to make the most of his one and only day on Ossetah Lake prior
to Saturday's first day of competition.
"This lake is different than anywhere
I've ever fished," said Horton, the 2000 B.A.S.S. Angler-of-the-Year.
"I'm sure that there are areas where the fish are grouped
together, but I wasn't able to find them today. It is probably
going to take somebody around 9 pounds or so to make the finals."
Horton, who arrived late Thursday afternoon
for the event, nearly didn't have the tools necessary to fish.
After Horton's flight to Lake Placid was canceled, he was rescheduled,
but his fishing equipment didn't arrive with him.
"I thought I was going to need to
borrow from one of the other guys," Horton explained, "but
when I showed up at the hotel my tube was there."
The 11 anglers will take to the water on
Saturday at 6:30 a.m. All have been furnished with Triton TR-21
boats equipped with 225 horsepower Mercury EFI engines. Additionally
the boats will be rigged with Lowrance electronics and MotorGuide
Trolling Motors. All of the rigs will be towed by Jeep Grand
