When Seth Feider took big bass honors on Day 1, he didn't think it would hold up as the big bass over the next three days of the Toyota Bassmaster Texas Fest benefiting Texas Parks & Wildlife.
"I'd feel a lot better if it was 11 pounds," said Feider, noting the double-digit bass reputation of Lake Fork.
And Feider was a little upset about having to come south from his home state of Minnesota where duck season was open. But he definitely made this week worth his time. Feider finished 11th in the tournament AND won a new Toyota Tundra pickup truck in taking the Toyota Tundra Big Bass Award. So was it worth missing a week of duck hunting in Minnesota?
"Absolutely," Feider said. "But only because the weather was not right for killing ducks. If it was 20 degrees back home, I probably wouldn't have caught that fish. I'd have been thinking about ducks too much."
