We haven’t been able to get a hold of David Walker’s boat to confirm Walker’s 7-1 but Hank Weldon, who has been running BASSTrakk for four or five straight Classics, says he’s pretty sure it’s legit. He made the case that the number punched in is too unique. The 7 is not near the 1 and there’s no way he was trying to put in a 71 ounce fish. So, we think it’s good. I should note here though that I’ve seen crazier things happen when some of the Marshals get a hold of the BASSTrakk phones.
