2012 Bassmaster Classic Red River - Shreveport-Bossier City, LA, Feb 24 - 26, 2012

Hackney almost ran out of gass

6:26 am CST, Feb 25, 2012 | By Pete Robbins

Greg Hackney is committed to making the long run to Pool 3 once again. Yesterday he burned 47 of the 50 gallons of gas his boat held.

 

"You picked a bad day to ride with me," he told his observer, referring to the mid-30s temperatures. He won't make the same 10 mile detour he made yesterday so he'll be able to hit the throttle a little harder today. "- won't have to baby it."

 

Yesterday he arrived at his best area at 9:30 and left at 12:22. It's a risky choice, but unlike those in crowded Pool 5 he won't have to jockey for position.
