In the September/October issue of Bassmaster Magazine, Texas quarterback Colt McCoy, along with Texas wide receiver and best pal Jordan Shipley, turn in their cleats for a crankbait when they go fishing with 2008 Bassmaster Classic champion Alton Jones of Waco, Texas.
While hauling in eight bass through the morning, McCoy talks about his passion for fishing and how he has introduced several teammates to the sport.
Bassmaster: You obviously understand the competitive side of bass fishing. So, if you had the option of winning the Bassmaster Classic or beating Oklahoma, which would you choose?
McCoy: That’s a tough one, but I’d have to go with beating OU. I love to fish, but beating Oklahoma is a huge deal not just for me but for all Longhorns fans.
Bassmaster: If I put the best bass fishermen from the Texas Longhorns up against the best anglers on the OU football squad, who would win?
McCoy: We’d have a limit before Oklahoma even had their boat in the water! It wouldn’t be close!
