Garrick Dixon has landed his drone back on the Triton. We'll have video on the website later today of J Todd Tucker and Terry Scroggins fishing. Not catching anything, mind you, just fishing. Tucker said he'd like his hair parted, so Dixon obliged him. Dude can fly this thing. In honor of our legendary photographer buddy, Dixon has named his drone "Understreet."
Things have slowed with the tide rushing in, but Paul Elias still grinding away. Photo by Bassmaster Marshal Brian Christy.
Chris Lane adds one to the livewell on Day 1. Photo by Bassmaster Marshal Teresa Seide.
Byron Velvick is fishing tight up against a local yacht club. We watched Mike Iaconelli, Fletcher Shyrock, and Greg Vinson fish this same spot with nothing to show for it. This is a known community hole so we expect to see many anglers visiting this spot throughout the tournament.
