Skeet on the board again

Reese just caught another small keeper. This time on a buzzbait. He says he has 2 little ones and a big one. -- Hunter Baughman

Reese gets cranking

May 18, 2014

As we make our first stop of the morning Skeet Reese is cranking a riprap bank and immediately boats a small keeper. It's cloudy and spitting rain with hardly no wind. Should be great conditions to start the morning. -- Hunter Baughman

Hack is back ... but watch out for Martens

May 18, 2014

Greg Hackney last led the AOY standings in April of 2006. If he wins this tournament, he will lead the AOY race going into the next event. If he falls to second place, he will be tied with Mark Davis. If he falls to third or worse, Davis will lead AOY. No matter what happens today, Aaron Martens will trail by no more than 23 points — that's 36 points closer than he was at this time last year when he won the title.

Who has a real chance to win?

May 18, 2014

It's unrealistic to think everyone in the finals has a legitimate chance to win the tournament. The numbers will tell you that's not true. The best tool there is for determining who's within striking distance of taking home a trophy is what I call "Ken's Comeback Rule" (I came up with it, so I got to name it). It works like this: If you're fishing a three- or four-day (or longer) tournament with a five bass daily creel limit and you trail by more than the weight of what is likely to be the tournament's biggest bass, you're out of it.
