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.  

An eye on KVD

Feb 20, 2013

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.

Marty

Marty Robinson says he's cold but you wouldn't know it from how deftly he's skipping a jig into dock crevices. He's consistently threading it into 6-inch gaps no more than 3 inches high

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.

Starks in the clear

Feb 20, 2013

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.
