I spend a lot of time thinking and writing about the upcoming Bassmaster Classic and who should be the favorites to win or do well. It's interesting to me — and hopefully to you, as well — but I also spend time thinking about who I'd like to win the tournament, and I don't get to write about that at all.
Until now, that is.
With 51 anglers vying for the most coveted championship in all of fishing, there are lots of deserving people to choose from. I could just about throw a dart at my list of Classic qualifiers and hit the name of someone I like and admire and would love to see win the tournament. But, for now at least, I'm going to stick to the list of some of my personal favorites and tell you why I'd like to see them win.
