The Heaviest Ounce and other contemplations…

Will there be sight fishing at Smith Mountain Lake? Bo thinks so...

Smith Mountain Lake – What will the Smith Mountain Lake fish be doing next week when the Elite Series pros hit the lake?  Many experts are predicting that it will not be a sight fishing tournament like it was a year ago.   I will boldly go against the grain here and predict that there will be plenty of fish on the beds by the time the tournament starts.

What is my logic?  Last weekend I fished three different bodies of water here in North Central Alabama; a large reservoir, a medium lake, and a small pond.  All three places had more bass locked on beds than I have ever seen.   Even I could hook a few without spending much time coaxing them–and I am such a pitiful caster that I have to cast twenty times before I can get a plastic near a bed.   Shaw Grigsby, Kelly Jordon, and company would have had a field day catching all these fish.  Read more…

Classic Competitors: Leave your Sissy Sticks at Home

Mark Zona says the Coosa Spot is the small kid that can beat bigger kids up.

In Part 1 of this series, we covered how the “Alabama Spot” is not really a Spotted Bass at all.  In Part 2 we are covering the challenges of targeting this species on Lay Lake in February.

The final countdown is on for the 2010 Bassmaster Classic on Lay Lake and the pre-tournament hype has kicked in to high gear.  Amateur and professional pundits alike are laying out their analysis and predictions about what techniques we can expect to see from the Classic Competitors.  I am reading many reports about how Spotted Bass ( a species we now know to be a unique species called the Alabama Bass ) will factor into the tournament.  Many are saying that some fish will be caught on traditional Spotted Bass techniques such as the shakey head and drop shot.

Those pundits could not be more wrong.

Champions Reese, Duckett Provide Unusual Edition of Bassmaster Classic in its Return to Alabama’s Lay Lake

Boyd Duckett is one of eight Alabama anglers fishing the 2010 Bassmaster Classic

Skeet Reese of Auburn, Calif., shares the spotlight with Boyd Duckett of Demopolis, Ala., in this look at two champs aiming for the same prestigious prize in the 2010 Bassmaster Classic:

Focus on Skeet: As the winner of the 2009 Bassmaster Classic, Reese enters the 40th edition of the Classic, set for Feb. 19-21 on Lay Lake out of Birmingham, Ala., as the defending champion.

Spot back on Boyd: As the pro from Alabama who won the Classic three years ago, Duckett is the defending champ on Lay Lake, having won the 2007 Classic in his home state.

Again on Skeet: Reese is a candidate to repeat in 2010 for a rare consecutive victory. The Bassmaster Elite Series pro is at the top of his game. He narrowly missed 2009 Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year honors, finishing second in AOY points. And Lay Lake ups the ante for Reese: He was the runner-up to Duckett in 2007, just 6 ounces back.

On Boyd: He made history as the only Classic winner to capture the title in his home state. The small-town Elite Series rookie who instantly hit the big time intrigued fans; three years later, anglers – especially Alabama anglers – don’t miss a chance to shake Duckett’s hand.

“I’ve had several thousand people in the last six to eight months say, ‘You know, the Classic’s coming back to Alabama, man, you’ve got to step up for us,’ ” Duckett said. “I feel like I’m fishing for a whole team of thousands of anglers in Alabama. Coming into it in 2007, I was fishing for me and a close group.”
