A narrow band of storms are pushing through Plattsburgh, NY. We are optimistic they will be over before the weigh-in begins. The lake is "bumpy" and those heading back to Plattsburgh will find much different conditions than their trip this morning.
The last boats leaving the dock Day 1 of the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Northern Open presented by Allstate on Lake Champlain. Beautiful conditions this morning for those making the long run to Ti.
Opens angler Pete Gluszek captures this Champlain morning.
Here's a look at the Day 1 takeoff of the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Northern Open #2 presented by Allstate.
Pete Gluszek is pumped for Day 1! It couldn't have anything to do with what he's holding up in this photo, could it? =)
Scott Cremeans takes an icy plunge into Lake Champlain after forgetting his boat plug on day 2 of practice.
I won't be fishing for these ones in the tournament but it's nice to have them as backup in case my largemouth don't work out. #1 4lbs #2 3.5lbs.
Registration and the meal provided by Adirondack Coast is in full swing.
Big decisions to make come tournament day! Which way to run and what species to chase I think it could be won with either largemouth or smallmouth!
