Catching up with the leaders

Jun 28, 2014

I just caught up with Bethel 1, our Day 1 leaders. They were fishing the same hole Bethel 2 was fishing earlier. A couple of locals who have been rooting on the two teams said that this is where Bethel 1's big bag came from on Day 1. Both teams were throwing an oversized flutter spoon and working it hard. The spoon looks to be 10 to 12 inches long. On each cast the anglers would snatch harder than most people would when they set the hook on a fish, thus jerking the flutter spoon through the water. They'd then let it fall and go again. Looks pretty tiring.  

Day 1 leaders struggling

Jun 28, 2014

Receiving info from our camera guys that the Day 1 leaders from Bethel are still sitting on 0. Goes to show what this lake is capable of: if you pull up on the right spot at the right time, you can catch a mega bag quick. If you're at the right spot at the wrong time, you can have your feelings hurt. So far, it's a hurt feelings kind of morning for Bethel. Obviously there's a lot of time left to fish but most of the bigger bags were caught early yesterday. The others came in the last 30 minutes.

Biggest community hole on the lake

Jun 28, 2014

Swims and Ross for Bethel caught their 24 plus yesterday on what they deemed the biggest community hole on the lake. Looks like they were right. This is a shot of that spot today and no, Bethel is not in that mix.

UNA off to a big start

Jun 28, 2014

UNA's Young and Lenz off to a big start. 18 in the box including a 7-pounder and 2-pounder. I mention the 2-pounder because that gives them a lot of room to cull up. Another 7 and they're in the 23-pound range. Some think that could be enough today. I haven't seen the leaders yet, though, and that 27-5 they had yesterday is going to be hard to overcome.
