Despite steady rain, the Day One launch of the 2011 Bass Pro Shops Northern Open #3 went off without a hitch.
Check out Mark and Valerie Hicks as they prepare for the first day of competition on Oneida Lake.
With a long day, it's a short story from Hicks on the eve of the Northern Open.
Thanks for encouraging comments and wishing me luck, I'll need it.
Hicks go from slop to shop to fish-fry stop.
Mark and Valerie Hicks experience overnight rain, shopping at Bass Pro Shops and walleye fish fry.

B.A.S.S. tournament officials and Nate Wellman have mutually agreed that Mr. Wellman will not fish any Bassmaster tournaments until March 2012.
I’m still in New York. The fish are moving quickly into their fall patterns, and I’m thinking Oneida will be an interesting tournament.
Having to jack with the jack plate cuts into practice time for the Hicks.
