I was curious this morning as the fog laid heavy at the launch ramp if this would hinder any of the anglers areas and if they would make a long run or not. Many of the top anglers said they were heading to their areas no matter if they had a dozen casts and had to come back or if they had 2 hours to fish.
Anglers had to wait on the fog to clear, but finally got started on Day 2 of the Bassmaster Elite at Sabine River Presented by STARK Cultural Venues.

Seth Feider is one of the many rookies that joined the Elite Series in 2015. On Day 1 he struggled with the fickle fishery and didn't boat a keeper all day. Technically, Feider still had not caught a keeper as an Elite Series pro, but as of 5 minutes ago that has all changed! Feider brings a 2-pounder aboard his Rapala wrapped boat and now he can exhale and fish just a little more loose than normal. Granted, he has a lot of work to do if he wants to fish tomorrow, but that has to feel good for him.

ORANGE, Texas – Not being from around here, it only took a few minutes in a boat on the Sabine River Thursday morning for me to realize this isn’t the kind of water I grew up on. I’ve spent countless hours on the Coosa River in Alabama, and I don’t ever remember seeing mullet jump 2 and 3 feet out of the water when they were spooked by a bass boat. But I saw it today as Shaye Baker and I followed Aaron Martens through a narrow canal during the opening round of the Bassmaster Elite at Sabine River Presented by STARK Cultural Venues.
