I would live blog the weigh in, but FLW Live eats my computer resources to the point that trying any operation but watching the weigh in isn't a good idea.
So in the meantime I'll fill you in on my Fantasy Fishing moves. As you may have read I was going with Clausen, but after a look at his Table Rock history with BASS I dropped him like a rock in favor of Million Dollar man Scott Suggs. Another move prompted by the BASS standings was a switch of Dan Morehead for Jay Yelas. Morehead's Table Rock resume isn't the greatest while Yelas had fished there 5 times and never was out of the top 20. At the last minute I read the BassFan scouting report and I got spooked by Clark Wendlandt's comments so I switched him out for Gentleman George Cocheran who had an 8th place finish with BASS at Table Rock in early March 2004.
Of Note- In Addition to Luke Clausen another angler who was highly touted was Larry Nixon, but Nixon's BASS Table Rock resume isn't very good at all.
Weigh in now over- When the video feed finished FLW seemed to freeze up the computer so I couldn't get the Day standings there but they had them right away at FLW mothership.
Here are the Top 10:
1 DAVID WALKER SEVIERVILLE, TN 5 26-11
2 SHINICHI FUKAE MINEOLA, TX 5 22-05
3 CHRISTIAN ROMANS CARROLLTON, KY 5 21-04
4 AARON MCMANAWAY ALTAMONT, IL 5 20-13
5 MICHAEL BENNETT LINCOLN, CA 5 20-02
6 LUKE CLAUSEN MOUNT JULIET, TN 5 20-01
7 RANDALL THARP GARDENDALE, AL 5 18-10
8 SCOTT CANTERBURY SPRINGVILLE, AL 5 18-06
8 CHRIS ELLIOTT MOREHEAD CITY, NC 5 18-06
10 JACOB POWROZNIK PRINCE GEORGE, VA 5 18-05
My only top 10 angler is Shin. You may say I made a very bad call on Clausen at this point but he said he caught way more than he thought he would and Day 1 don't mean Jack Squat, so he could easily slip.
Looks like Hellabass made the right call with Walker. Bennett, Canterbury, and Powroznik are dangerous anywhere, but I didn't give any of them a look for this tournament. I think Guntersville ace Tharp is a bit of a surprise and the other 3 guys are not really familiar to me.
The thing is there are a lot of solid bags out there and even 78th place with 13-00 has a shot tomorrow with a 21+ pound bag of which there were 3 today, so lots of guys are still in the running and I could see a lot of movement in and out of the top 10 tommorrow. If Fukae stays strong and I get a few rally's I could have anywhere from 2-6 anglers in the top 10, but really anthing beyond 2 is really a long shot and I could easily have none.
Dad's Team: Ouch!!! 5 anglers at 100 or worse including #148 and #151. His best angler is in 30th.
