J Todd Tucker on Day One of the Sabine River Challenge.
This is like a "Where's Waldo?" event. Your pros are going to be scattered to the winds.
Boyd Duckett starts Day One on the beautiful Sabine River.
We've made it over to the Lake Charles, La., area where several of the anglers are running. It's about 45 minutes by Interstate to get here. I have no idea how far by boat. But we are going to stick our nose into a myriad of backwater lakes, creeks and sloughs. We are on the Calcasieu River. It's dingy,almost dirty. water temp is in the 50s. Like the anglers, we are looking for cleaner water. Hopefully we will find them soon. Kieth Worthy, who grew up on this river and the Sabine, is excited about this event. The whole community is excited.
Bill Lowen shows off his third keeper on Day One on the Sabine River.
The Elite Series anglers will be spread far and wide on the Sabine River system on Day 1 in hopes of putting together enough weight to stay in the competition.
If this event has any semblance of a local favorite it's Dennis Tietje.
