Day Two on the water

Mar 22, 2013

See what happened today on Day Two of the Falcon Lake tournament.

Best laid plans...

Mar 22, 2013

Yesterday, I wrote a blog post here explaining why we had some issues with the weigh in. Fortunately, later that night, we found a way to get most of that Day One weigh-in up. At the end of the blog, I promised we would try better today. Little did I know that I'd be writing another one of these so soon...   We sorted out our satellite issues and with 15 minutes before the weigh in was set to begin, it appeared that we were good to go. We fired up power to the stage and backstage livewells- and. instantly lost power to the equipment that brings you the weigh in.

Pros and locals fishing the dam

Mar 22, 2013

We’re back at the dam, which is now becoming overrun with local fishermen. Duckett, Combs, Pete Ponds, Kota Kiriyama are all still grinding it out here. Maybe with this last little bit of sunshine the bite has turned on. Combs is still heaving his deep diver, and Kiriyama is dragging a Carolina rig. Combs is trying to ditch his three small fish which he described as really little, but his other two are stout. He said that the fish have just quit biting. The sun doesn’t seem to have any effect on these deep fish.

Sporadic splashes

Mar 22, 2013

We’ve settled down on Jeremy Starks who’s got two 5 1/2-pounders and three smaller ones. “I’ve caught a blue million babies. I’ve got a point I can pull up on and catch 2-pounder after 2-pounder after 2-pounder.” All over the lake there are sporadic splashes, most of which look like a gar scooting along, then you’ll hear one with a distinct slurp. Starks, like everyone else, assumed they were gar until, on a whim, he fired a topwater out. “I threw that thing, and ‘bam!’ he smoked it. It was a giant, too.
