Everyone does it, whether it’s football or the latest Bassmaster television show, we sit back and think of something we would do different or better. It looks easy from the comfort of our couch, or in this case from a camera boat. Episode 7 of Brent Chapman’s Pro vs. Joe is different than the other 12 episodes because in this episode it was Brent Chapman who issued the challenge. During the filming of episode 6 (Grandpa’s Backyard) with “Joe” Max Gresham his friend and volunteer camera boat driver for the day was having some fun critiquing and heckling the duo from behind the camera. While the critiquing was all in fun, and the camera crew certainly flamed the fire, Chapman had heard enough. That, or Chapman just wanted another day on one of the excellent lakes Live Oak Plantation has to offer. Either way, as the day wound down Chapman issued the challenge to the heckler. The boat driver was quick to accept the challenge and the battle was set.
Episode 7 Pro vs. Joe
The boat driver turned out to be the son of Chapman’s Elite Series colleague J. Todd Tucker, Landon Tucker. Landon Tucker is an accomplished collegiate angler at Valdosta State in Georgia, and has spent many days on the water with Elite Series anglers including his father. Faced with a different lake at Live Oak Plantation and an angler who knows every inch of it, this episode looked to be the biggest challenge for Chapman to date. For Tucker it was game on, he’d spent an entire day on a boat without the ability to make a single cast and he was itching to get his shot at the Elite Series pro. Who comes out on top?
