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

It's a party somewhere

1:32 pm CST, Feb 22, 2012 | By Steve Wright

Kevin VanDam has joined the party in this Red River backwater area, which shall remain nameless.

 

That brings the total to 14 of the 49-angler field that James Overstreet and I have seen here since 8:30 this morning.

 

We decided long ago there was no sense in leaving to look for other angers when, sooner or later, they are going to come to us.

 

There is, however, one drawback to staying in this stump-filled, wind-blown swamp: Overstreet and I have taken to singing our version of the REO Speedwagon hit "Riding the Storm Out." Our refrain is "riding the stumps out," as we pinball to the left when a stump rides down the right side of the boat hull, then lean to the right as a stump slides down the left side of the hull.

 

And it's only Wednesday. This is going to be a long week.
