A weird, wild, wonderful place

Mar 20, 2015

ORANGE, Texas – Not being from around here, it only took a few minutes in a boat on the Sabine River Thursday morning for me to realize this isn’t the kind of water I grew up on. I’ve spent countless hours on the Coosa River in Alabama, and I don’t ever remember seeing mullet jump 2 and 3 feet out of the water when they were spooked by a bass boat. But I saw it today as Shaye Baker and I followed Aaron Martens through a narrow canal during the opening round of the Bassmaster Elite at Sabine River Presented by STARK Cultural Venues.

Fog delays Day 2

Mar 20, 2015

Day 2 on the Sabine River begins in a thick cloud of fog. Using unofficial terms, I'd say Day 1 was foggy, today is very foggy. Or you might call it a blanket of fog. Tournament officials are out in the sheriff's boat at the junction where anglers can head left to Louisiana or go straight to Texas. It's still foggy there, though the sun is doing some work on it now. If we get to 11:25 without launching the rules state that the day is canceled.
