Getting crowded

Aug 2, 2013

With the leaders from Eastern Washington University this morning, and it's getting crowded in this small creek. Not sure how many boats were in here yesterday, but I know there are four competitors including the leaders in here now. Very cramped and getting more cramped by the minute as that fourth boat just arrived. 

A show of respect

Aug 2, 2013

Mass exodus as the other boats realize that the leaders are fishing in this area. A great show of sportsmanship as these other teams don't want to encroach on the team with the lead. There's no written rule saying that other anglers can't fish in the same areas as the leaders, but it's something that's frowned upon by most. An unwritten rule if you will that questions the integrity of other anglers.

And they're off!

Aug 2, 2013

And they’re off! After a 35-minute delay, the teams are on Lake Chatuge and fishing. A lot of what was reported yesterday was an afternoon bite, so it’s unlikely that losing that little bit of time hurt anyone. The topwater bite that a lot of teams were banking on yesterday was nearly nonexistent, and wasn’t a factor in come weigh-in time.

Fog delay

Aug 2, 2013

Day Two of the Carhartt Bassmaster College Championship is under a fog delay due to the blanket that's currently surrounding the take-off and immediate area. It's burning off rather quickly, though, so tournament director Hank Weldon doesn't expect the delay to last much longer.

For Barr and Walker - the team to travel farthest to Lake Chatuge - it might as well have been a day on their home lake.

Brotherly love

Aug 1, 2013

We just caught up with Auburn's Jordan Lee and Shane Powell. They guess they're sitting on 10 pounds or so, which seems to be pretty fair, based on our limited intel. Chandler Ray told me that Jordan's motor blew two days ago and mama Lee drove brother Matt's boat up from Alabama. Matt is in his Carhartt-wrapped Triton/Mercury. That's family love right there, folks.
