Terry Scroggins wins the second event of the Bassmaster Southern Open on Santee Cooper Reservoir.
Pro anglers have just wrapped up this week's Capitol Clash on the Potomac River presented by BUSCH Beer and with that, BASS has finalized the 55-angler field for the third and final Bassmaster Major, the Bassmaster Legends presented by Goodyear, on the Arkansas River in Little Rock, Ark., Aug. 24-27.
The third and final Major in 2006 the Bassmaster Legends returns to a familiar scene rich in BASS history on Aug. 24-27 when Little Rock and the Arkansas River host the prestigious tournament.
LITTLE ROCK, ARK. It's going to be hot, the skies may be bluebird and there isn't much current expected.
The sense of optimism among the anglers fishing the Bassmaster Legends on the Arkansas River is bleak. While being barraged by questions before the 6:50 a.m. takeoff, one Elite angler had an inquiry of his own:
With two Bassmaster Classic titles and more than $2 million in winnings in BASS events, it's obvious Kevin VanDam doesn't make many mistakes once he gets a fish hooked. But he made one Thursday on the Arkansas River during the CITGO Bassmaster Legends Tournament presented by Goodyear.
Four-time Bassmaster Classic champion Rick Clunn likes competing in the format set up for the three CITGO Bassmaster Majors this season. The Legends event is the final Major this year.
The Arkansas River and its 15-inch slot limit severely limited the Bassmaster Elite Series anglers on the first day of the Bassmaster Legends, a local angler said.
The Arkansas River will always be a special place to Mike McClelland, except for when it is fishing this hard.
