Rojas down to the wire

Mar 17, 2013

  Dean Rojas is back at the Sulphur bridge. He confirmed he has one 5-pound fish - that's it. At 2 p.m., he said he's got about 20 minutes of fishing time left before he'll have to head to Orange to make his 3:15 check in time. Candi Hall and her husband, Sammy, have followed Dean Rojas all up and down Bayou D'Inde today.

Make it or break it this hour

There's only about an hour of fishing time left here on Bayou D'inde. Dean Rojas has only one keeper, a five pounder, in his livewell.   According to BassTrakk he's sitting in second place behind Todd Faircloth by 5 pounds. But if you think this thing is over let me remind you of two things:

  It's no secret that Dean Rojas isn't real happy with the fact that he's sharing water with Alton Jones. If you dig deep enough, you'll find that both men have every right to be here.   Jeff Kriet is in Bayou D'Inde too, but he's stayed out of sight all day.  

Rain in the future?

Mar 17, 2013

Might have a rain shower in our future. The good fellows I'm conferring with today tell me the change in barometric pressure could assist Todd Faircloth real soon. He's maybe 75 yards from the grass where he caught his big bass a few hours ago, that big 5-pounder. Things could get really interesting if the circumstances come together.

The huge playing field from Orange

B.A.S.S. has allowed the anglers pretty much carte blanche on the boundaries for this tournament, and anglers have taken advantage.   Mike McClelland topped 1,000 miles this week about halfway through his Sunday drive to Friendswood, Texas. He’s about 120 miles by land from the takeoff in Orange, and probably farther by boat. According to BASSTrakk, McClelland is way up Clear Creek, just south of Houston.  

Faircloth culling

Mar 17, 2013

Really windy out here on Big Hill Bayou right now. The water is kicked up a bit, dirtier than it was when we arrived this morning. We're perched on the north side of this bayou, and Todd Faircloth is working his way back to the east.   Every time I send a blog, Todd yanks another keeper bite. The latest bass looks like it will allow him to cull the shortest fish he has on board. He's about 45 minutes, I understand, from the weigh-in back in Orange. This wind is going to make that run a bit longer, my guess.
