The article reports that thirty-five of the nation's best anglers with disabilities from 17 states showed up in Sanford, Florida, between January 14-16, 2005, to find beautiful weather on the St. Johns River, as the highs were in the 80s during pre-fishing for the PVA Bass Tour's 4th Grand National Championship, a BASS Sanctioned Event. But it all changed on the first day of competition as a massive cold front, rain, and high winds made for a tough bite. The Bank Competition was extremely close until past champion Chris Hudson well known on the tour as a great catfish angler, caught a 6.94-pound catfish that gave him a good lead after day one with 8.03.
