Mid-Atlantic Divisional anglers launched in clear, breezy conditions.
Also from Joan Blankenship -- thanks, Joan! Joan said, "I am not sure that this is clear enough to see, but there was a rainbow that appeared over the Lake Motel in Clarksville, Va., right after a thunderstorm this afternoon. We know that a few lucky anglers will find the bass pot of gold and win the opportunity to go to the national championship tournament in November." Couldn't have said it better!
Damion McMahon, a member of the Virginia team, is really eager to start Day 2 on Buggs Island Lake. Keeping cool is the plan for tomorrow. (Photo and caption provided by Joan Blakenship)
B.A.S.S. Nation Director Jon Stewart sent in this photo, taken after the storm on Day 1 of the Mid-Atlantic Divisional. All's right with Mother Nature ... for now.
The Mid-Atlantic Division beat the heat for some nice bass on the first day at Buggs Island Reservoir!
Keeping his cool in hot conditions was key for Virginia angler John Conway, who leads the first day of the Old Milwaukee B.A.S.S. Nation Mid-Atlantic Divisional.
The Day 1 weigh-in just concluded. Virginia's John Conway leads with 11-13. Bite was tough today and most anglers said slow meticulous tactics were the key in today's hot conditions. See Full Leaderboard.
