Elite Series Battle on the Border Amistad Day 1

Shortly I will be over at the Bassmaster site to see what's up.

Well it appears nothing is up. Lake Amistad must be sufficiently remote to cause issues with the Basstrak and BassCast live on the water features. If you don't know Basstrak is an electronic system where every observer/marshal in the Elite Series boats will send in weights for the fish caught during the day, which should result in there being an unofficial scoreboard during the day. It's something to keep your attention during the tournament day. It appears there isn't going to be any BassTrak for Amistad at least not on Day 1.

BassCast is a webcam live feed from a couple of the Elite Series boats. Not working either.

Also, it looks like there won't be any streaming audio of the weigh in so those of us without ESPN 360 are out of luck. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Although this doesn't matter so much for Amistad, because I will be paying attention to FLW weigh in which I think runs concurrently with the BASS weigh in. Hopefully BASS will ad an audio feed for the next Elite Series event.

Update: It looks like the Live Leaderboard didn't work today. Looks like the first hint I am gonna get about the BASS action is on tonights BassZone Wide Open at 7PM. Looks like I will be recording survivor.
