The dam crew

Mar 22, 2013

We’ve left the dam, and it was pretty quiet. Jonathon VanDam and Fletcher Shryock seemed to be working together, being mindful of each other’s line. However, they were still maneuvering around each other, negotiating the other’s boat. JVD has gone to a big football jig. We saw Stephen Browning up the lake a bit, and in his words, he’s “ still trying to come off this egg.” In other words, he still has yet to catch a keeper in this derby. Kevin Hawk is fishing within sight of the dam and has a small keeper.

Berryman predicts fireworks at Falcon

Maybe one day all of us bass fishing writers will learn to ignore the "poor-mouthing" that occurs every Wednesday during registration for an Elite Series event. All the talk was about how Falcon Lake was so much tougher now than it was then. Some of that is true.  

Boyd busts a big one

Duckett is fishing the riprap along the dam this morning within sight of Keith Combs and Jonathon VanDam, who are working a little farther offshore.   Duckett has three fish in the boat, but his most noteworthy is an 8-pound Falcon beast. She came on a big Senko rigged weightless and worked through the rocks.   Duckett is re-rigging here and said he has to often in order to keep from breaking off.   "Even with it weightless, it's hard to work through the rocks," he said.

Ish's neighborhood

Mar 22, 2013

Ish just finished his limit. He has about 15 pounds and change and the fish are still biting.     As soon as be put his fifth in the well, he pitched back out and broke off on a hook set. In the last five minutes he's lost one, caught one and broke one off. His spirits are good, though. He will be fishing tomorrow and it's still early.     We're going to see who else is in the neighborhood.

Nice fish for Pirch
