Reese is struggling

Reese is struggling

By Dave Precht

It's a good thing Skeet Reese isn't able to check BASSTrakk. He'd be even more frustrated than he already is, if he could see how other Elites are putting distance between...

Skeet Strikes Again

Skeet Strikes Again

By Dave Precht

Finally, Skeet Reese has something worth opening the livewell lid for -- a 2 1/2- or 3-pounder he apparently coaxed off a bed. He spotted the fish and worked it for a good 15 minutes before it bit....

The fish spotter

The fish spotter

By Dave Precht

Skeet Reese isn't aimlessly working this levee bank, as it might appear from a distance. He's casting ahead of the boat, sure, but his eyes are scouring the shallows constantly, alert for...

Reese is on point

Reese is on point

By Dave Precht

After steadily working down a broken levee with what looks like a swim jig, Skeet Reese quickly reversed course and lowered his Power-Poles. He obviously sees a big bass on or near a bed. He's...

Betting on Skeet

Betting on Skeet

By Dave Precht

I imagine we will be staying within zoom lens range of Skeet Reese throughout the day. He's a good horse to bet on in this race. He's fresh from a win on Alabama's Lake Guntersville in...

Boats congregating

By Dave Precht

We've left Reese and moved to the lee side of this big bay, where the shallows should be relatively undisturbed by the building wind. A clot of tournament boats is congregated here,...

Dry spell for Reese

Dry spell for Reese

By Dave Precht

Reese has moved to another section of this large bay, and he has picked up the pace, hurling a spinnerbait ahead of him. He's fishing man made cover, the remnants of an old farmhouse...

Skeet has a limit

Skeet has a limit

By Dave Precht

After making a short run to another stretch of weeds, Reese filled out his limit with a 1 1/2-pounder, giving him about 16 pounds. He is sandwiched between Casey Ashley, the reigning GEICO...

A two-bag limit

A two-bag limit

By Dave Precht

Skeet Reese just boated his fourth keeper, probably a little over a pound in weight. That should give him between 14 and 15 pounds. Regulations here require that tournament anglers bag any fish...

Skeet scores

Skeet scores

By Dave Precht

After a short run, Steve Bowman and I have found Skeet Reese, who's on a roll after winning the Guntersville Elite earlier this month. Since he lives just 90 minutes away from this part of the...

Pirch on point

Pirch on point

By Dave Precht

We've spent the better part of an hour hanging around Clifford Pirch, hoping he hooks a big fish in the tules he's pitching to. No luck for us, or him. He's fishless so far, but he is...

The action commences.

The action commences.

By Dave Precht

Takeoff plus 90 minutes, and Elite contenders are blasting through the reedlines into one of the more popular areas of the Delta among local fishermen. It’s well known as a bedding area. Our...

Elite Series overtime

Elite Series overtime

By Dave Precht

Long runs of an hour or more are almost mandatory for the Elite Series anglers competing in the Sacramento River Delta this week. With no-wake zones and long, winding channels, it will take at...

Follow the leader

Follow the leader

By Dave Precht

Davy Hite and Todd Faircloth are in enviable positions this morning at the start of the Sacramento Bassmaster Elite at the Sacramento River. Hite is Boat No. 1, and Faircloth is Boat No. 3, but...
