Yeah, not a lot of guys signed up yet.

Splitting the forums sure has chased a lot of people away.

I agree. It's pretty sad. I hope we can start bringing some people back.

When KVD says he had, "a solid practice". I am starting to second guess not picking him.

He's grinding to get his 4th and 5th fish still with an hour to go.

Maybe my best first day ever, and I barely made the top 4000! I need to study up or something

Yeah,  getting lucky so far, a lot of fishing left. 

With the warm weather,  I switched to a couple shallow water studs...Hack and faircloth.

Tough to see Trevor Lo get blanked, but at least he'll be able to say he fished the bassmaster classic for his 13th tournament ever,  and finished 6 behind Kevin Van Dam. :grin:

This is going to be an interesting tourney. Sounds like this place is a crazy tidal fishery. Saw a facebook post yesterday that Swindle filled up his boat with gas 3 times yesterday haha. I love places like this. It's no ones home water and there has never been a Bass tourney here. I keep switching my picks on fantasy. Wonder how many times Ill switch it today haha.

Man what a tough tourney. I do like following tourneys like this though. It does look like an awesome place to fish though.

Yep, Not many of my guys are doing well.  Hack Attack needs to come alive for me..........well he and the rest of my team.  But yeah, this one looks like it would be fun to fish...or drive through on 4-wheelers????  Honestly most of those rice pad canals look less than a foot deep.  Crazy!

Anyone watching the live feeds today? Man if I was Carl J I would be hollering at Boyd Duckett. What a piece of work. Carl said that when he got to the spot where he caught his two 7lbers yesterday Boyd D was power poled down right on it. Carl said he probably shouldn't have yelled so loud yesterday when he caught his 7lber because there was no one around him and then all the sudden Boyd comes in and starts fishing right on top of him. Boyd couldn't figure out how to catch them yesterday but when right there today and now has 16lbs. I mean it is totally legal to do but man have some respect. I can't stand people that don't find their own fish and let everyone else do the work for them.

Not sure what to think of that one............Duckett got there first.  Maybe he had the spot in Prefishing but Joc got there first yesterday???  I dunno, just me I guess.

You watching the Blogs today?  I'm impressed with the amount of fish caught versus yesterday.  Seems guys were scraping through until the Nth Hour yesterday to get their limits.

Sounds like Carl put all his effort in practice on this one spot. He said that Boyd only came over to fish that area when he heard Carl screaming and saw him catch the two 7lbers. To me that's pretty crappy. Especially to be right on the spot where the two 7lbers were caught. It's a very small spot and to be power poled down right on it is garbage. And now Boyd is catching them. The question was brought up that if Carl hadn't had the lead would Boyd even went back to the area where he had caught only 7lbs. Guarantee you he wouldn't have

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
