Alright my boy Dave Walker is in the lead with 16lbs+
Got to take the dog out.
Now we find out Walkers marshal screwed up. He has about 13lbs. Looks like he got himself up to 15lbs.
It's now 2:26PM and there is no sign of Mark Tucker on Basstrakk. Hopefully his tracker is broken or his marshal didn't know how to use it. Brandon Palanuik is also not on the the Basstrakk. No Denny Brauer either.
Hmmm they are giving different results on Hook'd Up than on Basstrakk.
Crap Liveblog on Tucker:
Mark Tucker, on a good day, would have five bass in his livewell with enough weight to keep him in contention after Day One of the Classic. But it has not been a good day so far.
Part of his problem was self-inflicted. Tucker has spent all day in Shaw Lake. He picked up a rod with a spinnerbait that he wasn't planning to use today. It enticed a bite from a four-pounder that came unhooked right at the boat. That's when Tucker realized he'd left a hook cover on the spinnerbait from Wednesday's practice, when he wasn't trying to land a fish.
"Then I lost a three-pounder as I was lifting it in the boat," Tucker said. "It hasn't been a good day. I've got two fish and I should have five."
I see Denny is now on with 2 fish for 6lbs. A good average size if he can get a limit.
HMMM Mercer is up on the Classic stage doing stuff and Hook'd Up is on with Skeet.
Huh, they have KJ with Zona and Sanders doing a Hook'd Up on the weigh in stage.
