2009 Bassmaster Classic

81 posts in this topic

Don't count out the Hack Attack. It would be cool to see Clunn do well running an aluminum boat too.

KVD is tough to beat knowing how the guy fishes and the lake there at!

I think Hackney has a shot as well!

I might be eating these words in a few days but i would be really surprised to see Hackney on the top at this classic. Yes i know he is a local guy but he just hasn't been on this game for a while smile

Last year the T.V. coverage was not as good as the year before. Hope its better this year.

Hackney hasn't been fishing too bad lately. He was part of the team that won the PAA corporate cup last fall and he also won the FLW east-west fish-off on falcon lake recently. If anything, I'd say he's coming into the event with confidence in how he's been fishing

Derek didnt make the classic this year. I am going with Edwin Evers, I dont know why, I just think he is due to win the big one.

I'd like to see Faircloth do well. He's a great fisherman as well. I think this will be a great Classic. It seems that the Red River will be in great shape for the anglers to do some serious damage. I guess there have been already some big bags coming out of there so far in local tournaments.

My pick goes to Bill Lowen. Flipper that is great when the field fishes small and for very few bites which is what it sounds like day two and three could be. Did really well last year on Old Hickory making 20 to 30 pitches to the same lay down. WOW! I don't have that kind of patience.

Edwin Evers would be great but with the birth of his child today his head could be spinning.

    • LH...I repaired Shimano's for years, and this was a huge issue for the Stradics and the Sahara's, First, look at the bail and make sure that they are not out of alignment. I bet your problem is caused by one part (and it's the probable cause of both problems)..... To keep the bail from rotating on the cast (and snapping shut on you in mid-cast) there's a small friction ring inside the rotor. It looks like a heavy rubber band only it's made of heavy vinyl plastic. It's  actually called a "friction ring". When it goes bad it loosens up just enough to bind up your reel completely and the bail won't snap shut. Also check the round bail return spring with the smal 90* bend in it, that can pop out of the tiny hole (the "bent" end) and cause the bail to do literally nothing. If your bail actuator pin (your :latch") is bent/worn, that will do it, but unikey that it's worn down that much. Loosen up the bail center screws, and see if when they are loose the bail will return. If so, they may be bent/out of alignment. Takes some careful maneuvering to get them back to proper set. I love Shimao stuff, but they never did own up to this problem, as far as I know. Check those things first and let's go from there.

       
    • Look at the diagram, order the parts.   If it pops open or won't close I am still thinking the spring... Take pictures with phone or digital camera as you take it apart.  Helps to get it back together. 
    • Wrong guy there.  I don't fish in MN anymore, don't have a boat either. 
    • Clinton.     After Mn coughed up 66 million for 150 jobs in Cook, nobody from MN ought to be criticizing Indiana.  Looks like they got a heck of a deal.
    • who hasn't done something dumb like that.  I know I have!   good luck making it up to you Mother!!
    • *sigh* Kiss of death my friend............. kiss of death.   LOL
    • make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
    • the thing that trips the latch is worn or broken.    i think   will take apart and look if i set hook hard the bail rackets pops up and lets line out won't close some of time...have to do manually
