The first flight of Bassmaster pros and New York VIPs are catchin' 'em.
Gov. Cuomo visited with B.A.S.S. owner Don Logan and CEO Bruce Akin before heading out to compete with other officials from New York in a friendly fishing tournament. Cuomo recently said, "As a lifelong fisherman, I am looking forward to hosting the 2014 Bassmaster Governor's Challenge on Owasco Lake," Cuomo said. "The Finger Lakes are among the state's premier destinations for visitors and anglers, and this Challenge is designed to bring further attention to all the region has to offer."
Kevin Short is moving more. He's also changing baits more often. He was getting some weird strikes that he felt certain were bass, but when he has set the hook, nothing was there. "Maybe it's a color thing," he said as he threaded a different bait on his hook. "This was happening at that Open, and I never did figure out what it was." Hopefully he finds a way to connect with the phantom fish to fill out his limit.
The Bassmaster Governor’s Challenge is underway at Lake Owasco. Governor Cuomo invited other elected officials in New York State to compete in a friendly competition along with Bassmaster Elite Series pros who did not make the Saturday cut.
Things are slowing down here with these two. For the first time I saw Faircloth pulling his trolling motor up and starting the big Yamaha. I thought he was going to make a move, but he just graphed around and put the trolling motor down again. Not much action right now.
