Suspense is in the air as B.A.S.S. moves to Tulsa
We get a bird's eye view on the final day of the Classic
Well, Palaniuk just took off for the ramp, and we also saw Cliff Pace and several others speeding that way.
Hank Cherry is done fishing. He waved to his crowd then picked up his trolling motor and headed in. I can't help but want him to win. I met his family last night and spent some time on the boat with him yesterday and he's a very likeable, genuine guy. But I can't help but think I just saw him lose $500,000. No doubt he wonders the same.
It's now or never, time to run to check-in
Cherry is back at the start of his milk run of several bluff walls and ends. He's lobbing a Lucky Craft Staycee 90 and a Megabsss Vision 110 with a blue back and clear/chartreuse sides. There's intensity with everything he does; he knows a half-million dollars is on the line and that he needs one more kicker to feel better about his chances. The 1 1/2-hour ride back to Tulsa will be agonizing. What we just witnessed was even more painful.
Pace is back on the spot where we first found him this morning ... for the third time. This may be his final stop of the day.
Robbie Floyd just told us that Hank Cherry is less than a 1/4 mile away from Cliff, around a point. Amazing that they have 40,000+ acres and so often end up stacked on top of each other.
