Things are heating up for Crews Missile! Photo by Bassmaster Marshal Charles Waldorf.
Randall Tharp is fishing within earshot of Jacob Powroznik. We overheard Tharp ask, "Things are getting right--why aren't they biting better?" We couldn't hear his answer, but it's very likely it involved the encroachment of another angler into Powroznik's space. About that time, the interloper boated a 3 1/2-pounder. Powroznik was not pleased. Tharp pointed out that the other boats hadn't been so close to the area the day before.
Mark Davis — like Kriet and Rojas — isn't a fan of crowds. Since he won't get into the fray, he says he's got a couple choices. "You can either go ping the heavy grass or fish docks," he said. With spinning reel in hand, he's effortlessly skipping docks. "You've got to fish a lot of them before you get a bite," he said. He knew the fishing would be good yesterday, but not as good as it was. "I didn't think that much of the field would catch a 20-pound string," he said.
Here's a quick look at some of the action caught on GoPro from Day 1 on Cayuga Lake.
Randy Howell just got a 4 1/2 pounder and culled about 2 pounds
Bassmaster Elite Series pro Bradley Roy is once again giving young Kentucky anglers a chance to fish competitively for their high schools.
The Elite Series event here on Cayuga Lake in New York is dispelling a myth held by many anglers about northern natural lakes.
Take a GoPro look at the Day 2 launch of the A.R.E. Truck Caps Bassmaster Elite at Cayuga Lake.
Skeet Reese is trying to make up for the ground he lost yesterday in the AOY race. After finishing 6th on the Delaware River, Reese came into this tournament third in the AOY standings, only 12 points behind leader Greg Hackney. After his 58th place total of 13-4 Thursday, Reese dropped back to 8th place, 66 points behind Hackney.
