"I inventory everything before the season starts," said Yelas. "Then I order as needed for the season. My focus is more on the first couple of events."
"I'll be picking up my new Ranger z520c in a couple of weeks," said Yelas. "I'll have to break the engine in along with all of the other equipment. It needs to be ready to fish at the first tournament." Travel prep.
"I make sure my travel bookings are taken care of," said Yelas. "That includes flights and accommodations. You don't want to wait until the last minute for this."
