Christie: Getting set for stingy Sabine

It feels good to get back to fishing and get things going in the right direction.

Now appearing at the Bayou Club

Mar 19, 2015

This isn't your typical bass fishing tournament. As I was driving back to the hotel from the weigh-in site, I see a flash of a bass boat though the trees. I pull over to the Bayou Club, a fine establishment in Orange full of regulars enjoying a liquid lunch. They allow me out back on the deck, where I find Kota Kiriyama working hard. The owner says she's seen bass boats up and down the creek out back all week. I watch Kota for a little while and need to head back. Unfortunately I'm on the clock so I didn't get to stay longer.

10-pound barrier...broken

Mar 19, 2015

Skeet Reese is the first angler of the tournament to break the 10-pound mark. Here that is a big deal. In 2013, Reese caught 12 pounds and 7 ounces to finish in 47th place overall, which got him paid for the week. Just two hours into Day 1 of the 2015 event, Reese already has 10 to 11 pounds. There is no doubt that there is a happy camper standing on the front deck of his yellow Ranger, but as a true professional of the sport there are no moral victories. Now that he has double-digits he will want even more and that's how this game is played.
