Race to the finish line

See the pros fight to the end in the final hours of the 2014 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by Diet Mountain Dew and GoPro.

Off the water...

Feb 23, 2014

We're off the water and headed to Birmingham. Not sure if the last second cull will be enough for Tharp. I have a sneaking suspicion that lost big fish will haunt him.

How about that crowd?

Look at the crowd waiting to get into the BJCC Arena for the Final Day weigh-in!

Last-cast heroics

Feb 23, 2014

Last-cast heroics? With time about done, Tharp seemed resigned to heading in with the fish he had. Suddenly his rod loaded up and he fought a more-than-solid keeper to the boat that enabled him to cull. The folks on the bridge cheered, and even from a ways away I think I could see the blood flow back into his face. He only has a few minutes before he's due in. Will it be enough, or will the big fish he lost earlier haunt him?

Still time for Tharp

Feb 23, 2014

With time running out quickly, Tharp sped down to the far end of the riprap. He won't have far to go to get back to the ramp, so it's almost all fishing time. Playing the percentages in a spot where he has lots of big-fish history.

Jordan Lee coming on strong

Feb 23, 2014

Jordan Lee has culled twice in the last 10 minutes, first to gain ounces, and just now to replace a 3 1/2 with a 5 1/2. Late charge!

Someone's life will change today

Feb 23, 2014

In less than four hours, one man will hoist his first Bassmaster Classic trophy. And his life will change.

Evers headed out

It looks like we're headed to the ramp. Stay tuned for the weigh-in (live at 4 p.m. CT!).
