Jones stays close to dock

Feb 26, 2012

Alton Jones isn't going to be burning any gas today. He's in a narrow cut across from the Red River South Marina - a shallow, narrow cut.

Making our way to Little Jungle

Feb 26, 2012

I'm headed to Coushatta to cover the action in the Little Jungle, a backwater near the lower end of Pool 4.

Fans gone wild

Feb 26, 2012

Overstreet declared himself "geeked up" for Day Three. We're driving south with the stereo cranked up -- you haven't lived until you've heard him channel Gladys Knight -- and speculating about possible story lines for this afternoon. "How cool would it be if Bobby Lane is on the hot seat when Chris weighs in?" he asked.

Lane representing Florida

Feb 26, 2012

Now we're wondering if anyone from Florida has ever won the Classic -- Ken Duke, help us please. It's an important place in the history of the sport and it has produced dozens of talented pros, is it possible that it's never produced a world champion?

Meeting the anglers

Feb 26, 2012

Overstreet and I are in the truck headed down to a boat ramp in Pool 4, where there's a boat waiting for us. That's the advantage of being media -- we don't have to make the bat-out-of-hell run through the cold.   The downside? We may be making the drive for nothing. Chris Lane, our intended target, is going to make a stop on the way to the lock. If he catches a few he may not lock through.  

Tracking the Super 6

Feb 26, 2012

When I look at the top of the leaderboard, the most exciting part of today's action is that a bunch of Classic would-be first-time winners pack the Super 6.

Will Lane lock?
