Rick Nitkiewicz shows off a nice one weighing 5.2 pounds from practice on Sunday.
Oneida: 14 mph winds and weight approx 4 pounds. Right after that I lost my lower unit on an unmarked boulder in 12 feet of water. I caught a lot today, but I had to fight the waves and wind to get them though. Smaller fish in shallows. Update by Rick Nitkiewicz
This nice smallie caught on a jig and craw combo broke my rod into three pieces. The big largemouth was caught on swim minnow. Update by Michael Sopocy
The Ninja Turtle rig (the most photographed rig in the history of the sport) is packed, polished and prepared for the 10-hour trip from Berea, Ky., to Lake Oneida. Update by Charlie Evans
