Ugly, but functional

Sep 22, 2014

Super-blogger and my boat partner for the day, Jim Sexton, has donned a second ugly-but-functional hat from his bag of blogging essentials.

Remember, it's all about the points

Sep 22, 2014

It takes a different mindset to keep up with this tournament. Basically, it boils down to this: Aaron Martens has to finish 16 places higher in the standings than Greg Hackney and Todd Faircloth has to finish 18 places higher than Hackney in order to surpass him in points and take the Toyota Angler of the Year crown away from the points leader coming into this event.  

Hite fishing the industrial area

Sep 22, 2014

I am having a hard time hearing near this industrial area but I believe Hite said he has four in the live well. He had to let two 5-pounders go since they were hooked out side of the mouth. Its nice and calm where he's fishing.

Hackney on the edges

Sep 22, 2014

Greg Hackney is fishing along the edges of a large bowl near No-See-Em Creek. The middle of the bowl is around 25 feet deep, but around the edges it is only 5 feet deep, with some rocks. The sun is out now and the water is crystal clear. We can easily see the bottom.

Hackney: Before the first cast

As Hackney stood on the front deck of his boat waiting in the darkness of pre-dawn inside the harbor at Escanaba’s Ludington Park, a bevvy of thoughts ran through his mind.

Hackney culling

Sep 22, 2014

Greg Hackney just caught a nice 3 and a half pounder, culling up about a pound.    "How much you got Greg?" I asked.   "Not enough." He smiled. "On Thursday they were chasing about ever cast here," he said. "I was starting to think the fish had left. But they're on the bottom today."  

A bad hat day

Sep 22, 2014

Some people, such as Jim Sexton (pictured here), would rather have a bad hat day rather than a bad hair day like Overstreet.   Sexton looks like he's prepared to be here awhile and fits right in with the Yoopers up here.
