Bassmaster Article By Deb Johnson
Three days ago, on the eve of the Diamond Drive, Ish Monroe and Takahiro Omori had good reason to worry about qualifying for the 2012 Bassmaster Classic.
Monroe was 50th in points; Omori was 46th. Without a good finish on the Arkansas River, they could be shut out through the Bassmaster Elite Series. There would be too much ground to make up in the season finale next week.
On Saturday morning, Omori said the pressure to make the Classic each season is always in the background because he’s already a Classic champion.
