    When faced with a big tournament on a lake you haven’t fished before, you have to figure some things out.
    Basically, it sounds easy! Just figure where to go and what to throw - bait wise that is. Yes, sounds easy until you get to the lake, a large expanse of water. So where to start? You looked at lake maps, you’ve considered the time of year, water temperature and - this is sometimes a mistake - what has worked in the past.

    Ask Derek Willis a question during a media interview session and he'll give you a straight forward answer. He does not dodge questions. He just doesn't go overboard with answers.
    For his girlfriend, Keely Potts, that's frustrating because she doesn't think Kentucky fans have had a chance to see his real personality.
