DECATUR, Alabama – Besides having one of the best walk-up songs on the Elite Series (so says Bass Nomad Chris Shangle), Takahiro Omori is a legitimate Top 10 threat to win every tournament he fishes. After Day 1 at Wheeler Lake, though, Tak wasn’t even in the conversation with 10 pounds, 11 ounces.
But then came Day 2 (23-3). And Day 3 (22-9). And then, finally, Day 4, when Omori dropped the hammer with 25-3, the biggest bag of the tournament.
Here’s how it all looked on this part of the Tennessee River, through the Bass Nomad lens.
p.s. Omori’s walk-up tune is “Truth” by Japanese jazz fusion band T-Square. You really must listen to it.
