How Evers is fishing

Jun 7, 2015

We've watched Edwin Evers for several days now on Kentucky Lake, and Steve Bowman spent time in the boat with him yesterday. So we've developed some assumptions on how he's catching bass. Be sure to pay attention to the word "assumptions" because there's a little guesswork involved here.  

VanDam in the hunt

It's Sunday on Kentucky Lake and Kevin VanDam is in the hunt. What more could local fans ask for? Of course KVD has an abundance of followers. He has had a very good day, but he will need it to be great to have a come-from-behind win. We are staying near him for now to see what happens.   Photo by Bassmaster Marshal Lauri Lopp

Williams going to school

Jun 7, 2015

Elite Series pro David Williams is out here with his dad, Gerald, watching Edwin Evers fish, enjoying the drama just like the rest of the spectator boats. This week was his first time fishing Kentucky Lake.   "I didn't do well at all," he said. "Could never figure out ledge fishing."   

Evers managing spectators

If I'm Edwin Evers I'm probably not real excited about 20-plus boats following me around. But that's part of leading a tournament, and part of being a well-known Elite angler. And when you think about it, these fans are paying his bills, and mine as well.   Evers is handling the extra attention like a pro. He's moving around quite a bit, fishing six different spots so far. Each time he moves he tells the fans where he's headed.

LIVE dependent on cell service

Jun 7, 2015

Mark Zona and Tommy Sanders prep to go LIVE.   The Bassmaster LIVE crew is preparing to go, as hosts Tommy Sanders and Mark Zona say, Liiiive.   While there’s been some great moments the past two days, the spotty cell coverage on Kentucky Lake has the staff worried about how much fishing action they’ll actually be able to show.   Leader Edwin Evers, who made his LIVE debut at Lake Havasu, said the new feature to Bassmaster.com is exciting.  

Lester fills limit with best fish of the day

Brandon Lester waited a while for his fifth fish, but it was a good one.   With a 4-pounder, Lester should have close to 15 pounds now as he starts looking to cull.

Hite called his shot today

Jun 7, 2015

Yesterday Brett Hite predicted a big finale today saying, "In the morning my primary spot is pretty magical. I hope to start there and get a good stringer. It could go real, real big there."  

Kota Kiriyama has four this morning

He says it's been slow unlike most of his days. So much pressure has been on this lake this week that it is undoubtedly affecting the bite for some anglers.
