Now appearing at the Bayou Club

Mar 19, 2015

This isn't your typical bass fishing tournament. As I was driving back to the hotel from the weigh-in site, I see a flash of a bass boat though the trees. I pull over to the Bayou Club, a fine establishment in Orange full of regulars enjoying a liquid lunch. They allow me out back on the deck, where I find Kota Kiriyama working hard. The owner says she's seen bass boats up and down the creek out back all week. I watch Kota for a little while and need to head back. Unfortunately I'm on the clock so I didn't get to stay longer.

10-pound barrier...broken

Mar 19, 2015

Skeet Reese is the first angler of the tournament to break the 10-pound mark. Here that is a big deal. In 2013, Reese caught 12 pounds and 7 ounces to finish in 47th place overall, which got him paid for the week. Just two hours into Day 1 of the 2015 event, Reese already has 10 to 11 pounds. There is no doubt that there is a happy camper standing on the front deck of his yellow Ranger, but as a true professional of the sport there are no moral victories. Now that he has double-digits he will want even more and that's how this game is played.
