Greg Hackney might just be driving to his home in Gonzalez, La. He’s miles and miles further south than the rest of the field. At this point he’s gone about 70 miles and he’s still going. According to Zona, Hackney said he only needs one hour on the stretch he’s heading toward and he thinks, as Zona said, “He will crush their heads.”
The air temperature feels like it's dropping, but the bass catching is heating up in McDade Lake.
We've seen Randy Howell wear out a small spot on the dam, Fletcher Shryock has caught another one and, and Dustin Wilks has caught a few short fish.
Mike Iaconelli just added a keeper on a crankbait.
Hackney hit lock 3 at 8:50 a.m., and two other boats were already in the lock.
My fingers are numb. I've been riding in a helicopter with the door off to get video and photos. Wonder what windchill factor is at 100 mph.
The water temps back in here are 58 degrees and the clarity isn't great. I'm not sure what these guys expected after a day away from the water, but the wind over yesterday and today hasn't helped any.
We just got into McDade Lake, which is much more protected from the wind than Shaw Lake, which is just across the Red River main channel from here.
