KISSIMMEE, Fla. Here's a sampling of what was said on the final day of the Sunshine Showdown, presented by Allstate Boat Insurance.
"He's Benny-Boo. That's what we all call Ben."
Skeet Reese, revealing Ben Matsubu's nickname.
"It was so quiet you could hear your hair grow."
Howard Allen, former Elite Series Pro, on the slow times Sunday on Toho.
"It's only about a 9-pounder but is should be a 13-pounder."
"What's amazing is that I've caught four huge fish from the same spot on four different days."
"I didn't know who was more tired: me or them."
Mike Wurm, on a slower Sunday bite.
"If I knew, I'd have caught 'em."
Terry Scroggins' reply when asked what happened to "his fish" at "his tournament".
"I lost about 20 pounds this week."
Ben Matsubu, commenting on how much he perspired in the humid heat of Lake Toho.
"In seven days (three practice days, four tournament days) I never caught a limit here. To finish in the top 12 is unbelievable."
Jon Bondy, who weigh-in only 15 of a possible 20 fish during the tournament, but finished sixth.
"It would have been a perfect week if Alabama hadn't won."
Mike Wurm, on finishing 12th, and more importantly qualifying for the Bassmaster Classic, but having to witness his home-state Arkansas Razorbacks lose a heartbreaker to Alabama, 41-38, Saturday night.
