Hackney with a limit

Sep 22, 2014

Greg Hackney just caught a big-un--a 4 pound smallmouth. That's a limit, for about 15 pounds total.  Prior to this fish, things looked a little tense in the Hack boat. But this fish brought a noticeable mood improvement to the Hack Attack. We could hear a little laughter, and something that resembled a happy dance. The sun even popped out for a minute.

Martens makes a move

Sep 22, 2014

Aaron Martens has moved further back in Little Bay de Noc to another spot where we saw him Thursday. We can see Mark Davis and Skeet Reese off in the distance. According to BASSTrakk, they've both got about 20 pounds today.    The sunshine that Martens has been hoping for is about to happen. More and more blue sky is opening to the west and the heavy overcast is moving out.

Hackney with No. 4 on a drop shot

Sep 22, 2014

Greg Hackney just landed keeper number 4 on a drop shot. This one looked to be about 2 and a half pounds, giving him 11 to 12 pounds for the day. After a slow start Hackney has to be feeling a little better. He may not have enough to start thinking about the AOY trophy just yet,  but he has plenty of time left in the day to grow that sack.

Hackney with 3rd keeper

Sep 22, 2014

Greg Hackney just put his 3rd keeper in the livewell. It appeared to be around 2 and 3/4-pounds. That gives him 8 to 9 pounds for the day. Hackney is now fishing closer to Round Island. Overstreet tells me Greg fished in this area for about 4 hours on Thursday.

Pipkens-esque hair

Sep 22, 2014

Overstreet just asked me if his hair looks like Chad Pipkens today. I'm thinking it does. I may challenge him to get a purple mohawk if the final day of AOY ever gets finished.

Ike with another upgrade

BASSTrakk update

Sep 22, 2014

Due to the delays and cancellations many Marshal's had to leave and head back to their jobs and daily activities. So if you are checking out the BASSTrakk map today and you see numerous anglers still sitting at the takeoff area, that is because their Marshal's left and they had to fly solo without a BassTrakk unit.

Hackney with second keeper

Sep 22, 2014

Greg Hackney just put his second keeper in the livewell. We're guesstimating it's a 2-pounder. Maybe a little less. He is throwing a crankbait now.
