Last cast of practice. Nice way to end the day. Hopefully it holds up. They have moved around a lot with this crazy weather. Update from Joshua Cook, Austin Peay State University.
Joshua Cook lands this 5-pound smallie in practice on Lake Champlain.
Elite Series pro Charlie Hartley checks in from practice on Lake Champlain for the Bass Pro Shops Northern Open #2 presented by Allstate.
Co-Angler Chuck Cunningham would like to find this bass again on Thursday when the Northern Open begins. A good practice catch.
Day 1 of official practice at Lake Champlain was ROUGH!!
Update by Dan Owens.
My co-angler, Anthony Lorefice, caught this with me today.

Things are starting to happen here at the Bass Pro Shops in Kodak, Tenn. Get here soon to get a good seat and check out all the festivities. The weigh-in is set to begin at 3 p.m. ET. Going to be exciting.
It’s broken wide open upriver for Ott DeFoe.
We’re in the middle of a school of largemouth mixed in with white bass. The fish clearly are in the middle of a feeding frenzy.
He’s on his third round of culling.
The bait of choice is a crankbait that he’s working through the schools of baitfish and bass.
Estimated weight: 14 pounds. His smallest fish weighs probably 2 1/2 pounds.
