Lee gearing up for upcoming Bassmaster Classic

Posted by admin on January 31, 2013


CULLMAN — The intricacies of bass fishing are lost on most of Matt Lee's classmates and friends at Auburn University.

So when the 24-year-old Cullman native attempts to explain how big of a deal it will be to compete in the 2013 Bassmaster Classic Feb. 22-24 on Grand Lake (Tulsa, Okla.), he figures he's better off sticking with golf references.

"I try to compare it to how a couple of amateurs get a shot to play in the Masters," Lee said. "If you're lucky enough, you go from playing amateur tournaments every weekend to playing against Tiger (Woods) and Rory (McIlroy). Your whole world changes." >>> read more

MLee-blade-McGuckin225.jpgYou can probably start to guess how busy this past fall has been for me and for that I am very grateful! I apologize for being so lax on my blog postings and I intend to post regularly in the future and keep everyone updated on my experiences. Over the course of the past month I have made two trips to Oklahoma's Grand Lake to attempt and learn the lake as well as possible before I go back in February for the tournament. I had to split my trips up in order to come back to Auburn and take finals the last week of November. On that note, it is tough enough to sleep at night thinking about which creek the Classic is going to be won in much less trying to learn everything there is to know about Statistical Quality Design and Control. Needless to say the time spent on the water in Oklahoma was priceless and I have hundreds of waypoints that I get to dissect and contemplate over the next 60 days.
