Day Two of the Bass Pro Shops Southern Open #1 presented by Allstate is underway.
Plenty of anglers abandoning gear to get some coffee. Day Two is getting started.
I'm watching the American flag twirl around the flagpole in all directions of the compass. There's going to a crosswind all the way to the Kissimmee lock.
That's the setup for this morning. It's do or die day here so that probably won't matter much to the pros.
What could though is how the wind affects boat positioning on the wind blown flats. And how the wind affects water clarity in some areas.
Such are the nuances of this sport.
Oh yeah, there's an official Wind Chill Advisory until midday. Guess the National Weather Service didn't want us to feel left out with the rest of the country.
That's some cold Florida water too!
I just received this pic from Tow BoatUS. Looks like my rig is headed in.
I bummed a ride with fellow competitor Hunter Shryock to get back to Toho and swapped over to Charlie Hartley's boat to make it in for weigh-in. Tough day but looking forward to weighing what little I've got and going for a big bag tomorrow.
