Watching BASSTrakk from our porch

Aug 20, 2014

While sitting on our porch looking out on practice on Cayuga Lake, my wife, Barb,  saw the boats out there and told me, "Looks just like a LIVE version of BASSTrakk."  Pretty funny, because it is right on.

VanDam on the move

Aug 20, 2014

Kevin VanDam is on the move again. A recurring theme this morning. Run and gun, looking for a little something different. A lot of occupied real estate out here. Cayuga is practicing rather small. Each time VanDam relocates, he collects a boat or two. (That comes with the territory of being the most dominant angler of his era.) He'll move again to a vacant grass patch, then one or two more boats ease in around him. "I don't blame 'em," he says. "They're just trying to get a bite." After a short pause, "But I gotta catch 'em this week."

Every year the final events create interesting scenarios for who's in and who's going to be out of the Bassmaster Classic. But did anyone expect Kevin VanDam to be anywhere near the Classic bubble?
