Broken trolling motor brings back Branine, Boswell

Kansas B.A.S.S. Nation angler Beau Branine and his Day 2 co-angler Mark Boswell, of Nebraska, try to diagnose the problem that caused Branine’s trolling motor to quit working at about 10 a.m. today.


After conferring with Branine’s dad, David, who got on the phone and started trying to track down a replacement part, motor or boat, they pulled away from the dock at about 10:45, hoping to find some fish holding banks they could reach, drifting with the wind, until a better option becomes available.


Branine started Day 2 in 79th place; Boswell in 66th.
