Winter wonderland

Feb 20, 2013

Steve Bowman and Dave Mercer check out the snow. No word on a snowball fight after this picture was taken.

Lane keeping warm

Feb 20, 2013

Defending champion Chris Lane said he's already driven about 40 miles in the boat this morning and said his Florida blood is wearing a little thin. He's heating his hands with a portable heater. "Wait a few minutes," he said. "It'll be flaming hot."!

Winter wonderland

We're halfway back to Tulsa from the Grand Lake launch ramp, and it's a winter wonderland.

Almost missed Big Show

Feb 20, 2013

Running down lake toward the dam, we nearly passed a small inlet before we saw Terry Big Show Scroggins in the back checking out a huge woodpile. The place is called Twin Coves, and both are babies, maybe 100 yards deep. Scroggins worked the docks on both sides before exiting to his next locale. Before we could get moving, defending Classic champ Chris Lane flew by. Seems these guys are running around doing last-second spot checking.

20 a day should be plenty! But can it even be done?

Following the other VanDam

Feb 20, 2013

We just came across JVD, fishing tight to the bank and carrying on a conversation with a spectator walking the bank.

Following VanDam

Feb 20, 2013

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.
