Many moons ago, Day 1 leader Coby Carden and now Elite Series pro Jamie Horton were tournament partners in Alabama dominating nearly half the local tournaments there. At the time, Coby's current team partner, Chris Rutland, and now Elite Series pro Russ Lane comprised another team and were dominating the other half of the local events in Alabama.
Caught up with Coby Carden. Just caught his 5th keeper with us standing here and that one gives him about 10lbs or so without a big fish yet. Three solid fish in the 2-1/2 to 2-3/4 range.
Anglers head out to fish the Ouachita River in Monroe, La., on Day 2 of B.A.S.S. Nation Championship.
Rolling up the highway with 2015 Carhartt Bassmaster College Series Classic contender and Monroe resident Brett Preuett. Today's "on the water coverage" has become "from the Tundra coverage". After not seeing much from the boat yesterday, we got a little tip from one of the top contenders. He said he'll be way up D'arbonne Bayou. Right under D'arbonne Lake spillway to be exact. That spillway held the winning fish here in 2011 when Jamie Horton won the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship. Could history repeat itself here this week?
Coby Carden wants to get back to the Classic again, but that’s not all: He wants to win it.
