We sense our teams are going to lose and the hope of winning is slim to none. After all, it comes down to one play, one out, one throw, one last chance. Then, before our eyes, something amazing happens. A huge swing of emotions ensues as you go from hopelessness to disbelief to pure joy.

    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?

    By Larry Vaught

    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.
