Vinson catches number six

Feb 26, 2012

Greg Vinson has a limit, and just as I was about to type that it didn't help a lot, he caught No. 6, which did help.

Vinson's fourth keeper

Feb 26, 2012

The day's playing out exactly as Greg Vinson predicted. The later it gets, the better the fishing. Vinson yanked out his biggest fish yet, a bass he estimated at 4 1/2 pounds. He caught it off a bed with a Cajun Craw that's brown and orange. After dealing with camera boats and tape exchanges, he's back in the game and looking at another one.

Vinson has third fish

Feb 26, 2012

You read it here first -- warming water temperature and a slight chop from the wind, and Vinson now has caught his third fish, and it's a lot closer to the size he needs to win this thing.

Buck bass Vinson's second of day

Feb 26, 2012

Greg Vinson just pulled a buck bass off a bed for today's second fish.

The 2012 Bassmaster Classic Day Three launch includes 25 of the best anglers in the world. Anglers took off at 7 a.m. CT and are due back at the dock at 3:15 p.m.

Lane in high grass

Feb 26, 2012

There are pad stems all over the cut Bobby Lane is fishing, but he stays keyed in on a particular series of them.

Calm, cool, collected

Feb 26, 2012

Greg Vinson is covering some new water this morning. Same spot as the previous two days, but he worked farther down the north bank than I've seen him fish before today.

Vinson boats first fish

Feb 26, 2012

Greg Vinson put his first fish in the boat at 9:04 a.m. It's not much to look at, but it's a keeper.

Vinson keeping it together

Feb 26, 2012

Greg Vinson arrived about 15 minutes ago, and I'm impressed with his demeanor. He very casually pulled off his heavy jacket and took his time trolling into his first spot. He seems very relaxed for a guy who's a pound off the lead in the Bassmaster Classic. And that's the kind of composure that helps anglers win tournaments.

Making our way to Little Jungle

Feb 26, 2012

I'm headed to Coushatta to cover the action in the Little Jungle, a backwater near the lower end of Pool 4.
