Aug 5, 2008

"This is a funky kind of bite," says Boyd Duckett, winner of the 2007 BASS Legends tournament on Lake Dardanelle, after two days of practice for the 2009 Toyota Trucks Diamond Drive.

Jones finally well rested

Aug 5, 2008

Forty-four-year-old Alton Jones has been tournament bass fishing for over two decades now. He has thoroughly experienced how gruelling that can be, especially a four-day, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. event, like those on the Bassmaster Elite Series. There are three practice days before the tournaments start.

Jordon rules

The Kissimmee Chain produced four 20-pound-plus bags Thursday and three Friday. But Kelly Jordon was the only Bassmaster Elite Series angler to have a 20-pound bag days. That jumped Jordan into first place on Day Two of the Citrus Slam, presented by Longhorn.
