We just came across JVD, fishing tight to the bank and carrying on a conversation with a spectator walking the bank.
We left Evers with a stickbait in his hand and have picked up KVD who just rocketed from the back of Drowning Creek. VanDam is fishing what Meador says he’s fishing obvious stuff, like the main-lake point he’s throwing to just at the mouth of Drowning. Even though it’s practice day, VanDam has a following of four boats.
Jeremy Starks was in the back of a cove throwing a crankbait along the shoreline. The water temp was approaching 45 degrees and it was clearer the farther back one goes. The air is still and there's no signs of the impending snow. We're off to locate other anglers.
It’s time for my annual look at who’s fishing the Bassmaster Classic and who I think we should keep our eyes on as everything unfolds.
"Big" is a relative term when it comes to bass.
Pete Gluszek said his No. 1 mission today was locating bigger fish.
As we've moved downlake we've come across a few boats ...
So what was the coldest Classic day in history?
My boat driver Steve Meador and I sat down on Edwin Evers in the lighthouse point area.
Snow is falling quite steadily here in Tulsa, Rooftops quickly turning white. As someone from Alabama, I'm a bit surprised no one is running to the store to buy all the milk and bread. Here's a look at the Tulsa Convention Center (where the Expo will take place) from my room.
