Muscles – Day One notes and quotes from Kentucky Lake

john-crewsJohn Crews (currently in 13th) lists weightlifting as one of his hobbies, and it’s a good thing that he spent some of the offseason pursuing that passion.

With no direct path from his docked boat to the weigh-in line and 23 pounds of fish and numerous gallons of water in his bag, he had to stop, put the bag down and rest several times. For the other slightly-built Elite Series competitors the walk to the tanks was an equally arduous task.

Morizo Shimizu (19th, 21-11) looked like he was going to topple over under the weight of his bag. Randy Howell (29th, 20-03), who can’t weigh more than 150 pounds soaking wet, put it best: “What a walk when you ain’t got no muscles.”
