VanDam is ripping his jerkbait pretty quickly. With the low pressure system upon us, the fish ought to be chewing, but we have yet to see a fish caught.

How much will it take to win?
20 a day should be plenty! But can it even be done?
We just came across JVD, fishing tight to the bank and carrying on a conversation with a spectator walking the bank.
We left Evers with a stickbait in his hand and have picked up KVD who just rocketed from the back of Drowning Creek. VanDam is fishing what Meador says he’s fishing obvious stuff, like the main-lake point he’s throwing to just at the mouth of Drowning. Even though it’s practice day, VanDam has a following of four boats.
Jeremy Starks was in the back of a cove throwing a crankbait along the shoreline. The water temp was approaching 45 degrees and it was clearer the farther back one goes. The air is still and there's no signs of the impending snow. We're off to locate other anglers.

Pete Gluszek said his No. 1 mission today was locating bigger fish.
