A massive fog has set in on Chickamauga Lake this morning and the Guaranteed Rates Bassmaster Elite is in a delay. It’s 9 am and many of the anglers are working on their second and thirds cups of Black Rifle Coffee.
While the anticipation is evident, the guys know that safety comes first and that’s numero uno with B.A.S.S.
There are plenty of fish tales going on along the banks of Chick this morning. Some of the anglers I’ve spoken with this morning don’t seem to mind the delay because their fish have been caught later in the morning closer to noon. Some have jokingly said that the locals will have the limits before lunch as we’ve seen a number of local boats put in and idle out.
However this plays out, everyone is on the same page as far as safety and the guys fishing today have all gained valuable points and a nice paycheck for their efforts so far in what has been a very difficult derby.
