When Wood received a call from East Mississippi Community College men’s soccer coach Junior Noel, he had a feeling he had found his destination.

Robert Harmon doesn’t have as much time to fish as he would like. As a criminal investigator for the sheriff’s office in Chickasaw County, Harmon needs to be available at a moment’s notice, so planning leisure time can be difficult. This weekend, though, Harmon hopes to take a break from his full-time work as an investigator to a different kind of searching. Harmon hopes his time will be well spent Saturday when he competes in the American Bass Anglers district tournament in Columbus.
