2005 Fantasy Bass Fishing

Dan Wood

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I deleted the old thread so we don't have any confusion. They reset things for '05 finally, so those that registered will need to re-register. This is free and a lot of fun! You can win some prizes too if you rank high enough overall - Chris Haley and his wife came close last year as I recall...

Include some portion of your FM name if you can so we all know who we are playing against... smile.gif

Here is the link and info...

Hey Dan - thanks for setting this up! If you were already signed up for the 2004 league (or registered on the old link posted earlier) all you have to do is input your signon/password and then signup/register for this group.

I'm researching my picks already grin.gif! Should be a good time.

I am in last place on FM's group!!! confused.gif What did I do wrong. Only one of my picks placed yesterday. A lot of guys picked Woo Daves too because he was only rated a 4.0 but he placed real high - kinda bummed I didn't go that route. Hindsight is 20/20. I heard they had a short day yesterday though... I'm hoping some of my guys can at least make some sort of surge and showing today and put some points on the board - I doubt any of my guys at this point will make the 12 guy cut tonight though frown.gif although you never know - I'm hoping for a 45lb sack of fish from one of my guys like Rojas a couple years ago!!! Cha Right - maybe I'll have some reshuffling to do after this week mad.gif

Mike -

Your not last, 2nd to last grin.gif

Yea they had over a 2 hr. delay because of fog... I should have went with my favorite VanDam, he usually seems to figure it out.. I decided to follow the favorite and go with Shaw instead... My top runner left had a 4.0 salary laugh.gif Things could change a heck of a lot I think with only 15 and some pounds at 1st. They say it is clearing up and they expect the fish to come in shallow to spawn over the next couple days...

I'm not sure if playing this actually helps with the bass shakes or not...

Dan - I think you are 100% right! This is not helping! I think it helps initially and then it sucks you in even deeper than you ever wanted to go! LOL I think Bass fishing should be categorized as a drug!

Either way I'm just having fun following the event. Today can completely change things, only 15lbs for first yesterday on a shortened day is not much... usual bags down there are in the 20-30lb range. Most guys didn't even weigh a fish yesterday so all is not lost...yet!

Oh, one more thing - did anyone of you guys doing this check out the lake maps available on the site. They have a few from MN (tonka, etc.). They are pretty awesome, you can't print out a big map, but it's cool to read up on the "hot spots" they have marked on the maps. Just another cool feature for doing this fantasy bass thing. Could be cool if you ever get out and fish popular tourney lakes in other states.

Well I've got a long road to recover after getting crushed in this tournament. I was in second to last place on day one and just crushed into dead last with only 2pts to my name after day two.

I'm having to re-evaluate my field confused.gif. I went a middle of the road pack of anglers. All but one of them have placed high at least 2 times in the Florida bass tourneys in the last 5 years and still got shut out! Ouch - so much for research paying off.

Well I had a much better tourney this time around than on the first. I've still got a whole bunch of points to make up for though frown.gif. All I did was change 1 guy... How come my other guys didn't produce as well on the first round confused.gif! Oh well - what can you do!
