On Day 3 of the Evan Williams Bourbon Bassmaster Elite on the St. Lawrence River, we followed Skeet Reese who was 2nd overall after the Day 2 weigh-in.
With three days observing Elites on the St. Lawrence River, my boat mate Steve Bowman and I have seen anglers fishing three different patterns. Guys like Edwin Evers, Alton Jones and Bernie Schultz have been fishing shallow and sight fishing. They haven't caught big numbers but they've caught the right fish.
Although only two anglers weighed 20-pound bags yesterday, it's probably going to take a 20-pound average to win this tournament. Mike Iaconelli appears to already be there today. He had 20-12 on Day 1, but dropped off to 14-0 yesterday. Kevin Ledoux is getting close today, as BASSTrakk shows him with 18-plus today. He had 20-7 on Day 1 and 17-9 on Day 2.
Day 3 begins for the Evan Williams Bourbon Bassmaster Elite at St. Lawrence River. As most anglers head off in opposite directions we hang near the ramp to see who sticks around.
Edwin Evers certainly has been on a roll. It started with the Elite Series event at Lake Havasu, when Evers caught 20-7 on Day 1 and finished third. But take a look at his last six days of competiton, beginning with Day 1 at Kentucky Lake at BASSfest, which he won with a total of 97-4, and his first two days here: 24-0, 27-2, 21-2, 25-0, 21-3, 22-9
In a tournament dominated by clean, clear water, light line, spinning reels and smallmouth, Greg Hackney’s boat looks more like he’s been hanging out in a backwater of the St. Lawrence with Swamp Thing.
