Ike has five fish in the box for a total estimated weight of 24 pounds. It's topped off with a 6-pounder. We just watched him catch it. Needless to say, he "went Ike" on us. I got it on BASScam. Stay tuned for that one. He's charged up as usual. A scream with every fish. Maybe it's a rally cry. Ike just said he's got cotton mouth so bad he could make a Kenny Rogers sweater from what's in his mouth.
I’m ecstatic that we were able to get a second day of competition in at the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Northern Open on Lake Erie in Sandusky, Ohio.
James Overstreet and I are on Ike. It's an awesome morning. The wind is calm. So calm you can hear the clang of a nearby buoy. We're just north of one of the Bass islands. Here's the setup. Marker buoy is out. Ike is drop shotting and has the place to himself. Marker buoy out and we're on the move. We'll follow him. Stay tuned.
Because of Friday’s cancellation, a full field of anglers compete on the final day for the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Northern Open #3 trophy.
Being fairly new to the pro bass circuits this is the first time I have encountered a situation where they canceled a day of competition. I've enjoyed my day off even though after sleeping in a bit I woke up kind of confused not really knowing what to do.
