NEW ORLEANS - Pssst. Over here. In the weeds. Don't wave. Just try to look casual. If you've ever checked out a car or boat magazine, you've probably seen stories about mysterious prototypes that zoom around in public with all their markings covered up. In hot pursuit are the other guys, trying to nail a photo or steal a detail about the competition's latest and greatest advance. I've always wondered what it was like to be the pursued. Now I know. It started as a simple invitation at the Bassmaster Classic.

A 39-year-old Baltimore man was pulled from the waters of Liberty Reservoir three times yesterday, the last time after police tried to rescue him in a commandeered bass boat that sank under his estimated 300 pounds, police and fire officials said. During the hourlong incident, the man was first retrieved from the water by Baltimore County officers and placed in an ambulance, but he jumped out of the emergency vehicle on the Route 26 bridge over the reservoir channel, where he then fell or jumped while talking to police.

Sports fantasies. Lots of people have them. You know, World Series, Game 7, tie score, bottom of the ninth, full count against, say, Nolan Ryan.The batter, of course, is you. Ryan throws his best fastball, and you hit it over the fence in dead center field and round the bases while 50,000 fans go wild in the stands.But how often does one get the chance to come to the plate, much less hit the ball out?Bryan Kerchal, a 23-year-old cook from Newtown, Conn., got his chance to compete in and win bass fishing's version of the World Series last week on High Rock Lake in North Carolina.

By now I'm guessing you've seen the TV commercials or magazine ads that have adorable children urging grown-ups to "take me fishing." The ads and commercials are the work of the nonprofit Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation and the message is a good one, and not just because it helps create a new generation of readers for this column. Fishing's not hard to learn (although the number of how-to books and TV shows out there might scare you into thinking that you'd be better off learning bypass surgery)

And the winner is ... Four days before the start of the BASS Masters Classic, and it's anybody's guess. Will Kevin VanDam be able to defend his title? Can Davy Hite take it away from him and add it and the $200,000 first prize to his "Angler of the Year" honors? Or will 62-year-old Roland Martin finally win the one laurel that has eluded him? More importantly, is it possible for a Yankee gal to survive the soggy heat of Alabama and keep her gray matter from melting into her brain pan like a Gummi Bear on hot asphalt?

The top finishers in the Maryland leg of the BASSMaster 150 yesterday proved that you could get ahead by standing put. Eschewing the "run and gun" style favored by many on the professional circuit, winner Carl Maxfield, from Summerville, S.C., and runner-up Rick Clunn took up residence in the backwaters of Mattawoman Creek and walked away from the rest of the field of 10 finalists. Maxfield, who had not won a major BassMaster event in his 10 years as a pro, never looked back from the commanding 5 1/2 -pound lead he established on Day 3 of the tournament and added an additional 17 pounds, 3 ounces on the final day for a total of 64 pounds, 3 ounces.

The Bass Anglers Sportsman Society brings its BP Top 100 tournament to the Potomac River this week, and on Saturday, the top pro angler will walk away with a grand prize valued at $46,000 -- $25,000 in money and a Ranger bass boat worth $21,000. The top amateur will have to settle for an identical bass boat.In all, 200 bass fishermen will be paired for the tournament and may fish the Potomac from below Great Falls to Point Lookout, where the river meets the Chesapeake Bay.It is a safe bet that few, if any, will venture below the Route 301 bridge, but that still leaves a lot of water to be covered along the course of one of the best tidal bass rivers in the country.
