2008 Bassmaster Classic Lake Hartwell - Greenville, SC, Feb 22 - 24, 2008

What we heard and overheard

ANDERSON, S.C. — Here's what we heard (and overheard) on Day Two of the 2008 Bassmaster Classic:

"Oh, crap! I won't be able to pop out of the stage."

Jeff Kriet, 5th place, 18 pounds, 12 ounces, on losing a six-pounder to potentially miss his Super Six appearance. (In past Classics the final six on Day Three have taken part in a special show including appearing on stage through a cut out hole.)

"I made it by the skin of my teeth."

— Dave Wolak, 22nd place, 9-14

"I tried to come up with patterns that were spectator-proof."

— Kevin VanDam, 4th place, 11-14

"Tomorrow, I'm going to open up my box of lures, throw 'em out, and if anything makes a move on anything, that's what I'm going with."

— Kevin Short, 19th place, 12-2

"They're going a whole lot quicker today than they did last night,"

— Bobby Lane, 8th place, 14-13, on the pace of Saturday night's weigh-in.

"Everybody was crying today, it seemed to me."

— Steve Kennedy, 39th place, 5-3
