Oneida Lake's dumping grounds

Aug 23, 2012

The Erie Canal is on both ends of Oneida Lake. Back in the day, when they were digging the canal, they'd dump the soil into Oneida. So there are sections of the lake labeled "dumping grounds" on the map.

DeFoe catches a 2 lb. smallie

Aug 23, 2012

We've pulled up on Ott DeFoe who is fishing a shallow area between two islands. He just pulled in a nice two pound smallie. He now has three in the Livewell.  We're estimating he has between 7 and 8 pounds total.

Biffle dreams of Classic homecookin'

The 2013 Bassmaster Classic on Oklahoma’s Grand Lake is only 65 miles from Tommy Biffle’s home but he enters the Ramada Championship on Oneida Lake on the fragile bubble of a Classic berth.

Chapman one step closer to AOY

Aug 23, 2012

AOY leader Brent Chapman is already one-third of the way home in his quest for the title. He's already got a five-bass limit weighing 12 pounds, 12 ounces, according to BASSTrakk, which puts him in the lead at present.   Again, remember, we have BASSTrakk in only 50 boats, but Chapman is essentially competing within himself in this tournament. No matter what anybody else does, if Chapman makes the top 12 cut to Sunday, he wins.  

BASSTrakk all four days at Oneida

Aug 23, 2012

With so much on the line at the Ramada Championship, we'll be using BASSTrakk all four days to follow the Top 50 anglers in the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year race.

Off to see Ott

Aug 23, 2012

After stopping on Kelly Jordon and Jeremy Starks for a few minutes we are off to find DeFoe. We are hoping he's had a better morning. We like to see a closely contested race. Oversteet and Mercer are texting that Chapman is wailing on them.   He has to feel good about that. In a few minutes we will see if DeFoe is starting to keep it interesting.
