Any thoughts on the most successful patterns for these guys? Looked like alot of soft plastics yesterday. If that's the case, very encouraging news for me. I'm a wormer at heart.

from what i could see: pitching smaller, green colored soft plastics t-rigged around shallow wood

except for Palanuik who looked to be swimming a whitish jig

They are finessing trying for numbers. 1 pound is scorable.

There is a reason those guys get paid to fish for a living. They are really good, I like to see them on a lake I fish some just to see how they approach it differently than I do. But a lot of them are doing the numbers game in in a regular tournament format that will not help to as much.

They are given all the best tools and paid to do what we skip work to do . I wish my tv was a big as some of those depth finders. I love any kind of bass fishing but it looks like this league is living up to the dink fest they are known for. . I know when I get out on the water I ain’t worried about a fly by night pro needing to get a bite because if I’m out there I’m chunking for 15 lbs 3 ounces and I don’t care nothing about a club tournament or a professional tournament just trying to set the new record

Cliff Crochet and Aaron Martens caught the bulk of their big sacks on moving baits. CC had his early flury throwing a lipless and AM was catching them on his picasso spinner bait and vibrating jig. The guys throwing plastics like EE are going after quantity and building up weights on fish under 15". There will be more fish caught over 5lbs in the CBA saturday than any day of MLF because they fish differently going after numbers.

I think alot went the finesse route for those bucks because the bigger fish bite has been so finicky lately. You're right about the CBA, I know I for sure will not be throwing little finesse baits unless I just stink if up and need something in the well to save a few points.

I hear you. I felt the same way at first but when I started watching it unfold, I was impressed that they knew how to get what the lake would give them and hammer them. They whacked the fish they needed to in order to score.

I know it's a numbers game with this format but something's need changing,,,when Stephen Browning tied Martin's today they awarded him 1st place because he had caught more fish,,,so Martin's was actually penalized for catching bigger fish, that's BS,,,a tie should've fell back to had the Big Fish between the 2 not who had caught more,,,if that had determined the overall winner if I was Martin I would be pissed,,,it didn't stay tied long but that isn't right

Yea that is BS. I didn’t catch that part today. They definitely have it set up as a numbers deal. They might modify that in the future based on what lake they are fishing. Honestly I am surprised that the guys are able to catch them that good though..

Well it sounds like our lake is healthy despite going out and bombing on a few days. The future is still bright catching bass a few more years at least for now!

I am a fan of the sport as much as the next guy, but the arrogance of some of these guys regarding local anglers is off-putting to me. If you don't like fishing in a crowd don't show up to Chickamauga during the spring. I mean do they really expect for us all to stay at home because they decided to show up at our lake. I work for a living and can only afford to fish maybe 75 days a year, just because you show up to my lake in primetime doesn't mean I am just gonna take a weekend off. Hell Edwin is fishing in CFP, maybe the busiest place on the lake. If you fish there, you best plan on sharing the water with another boat 95% of the time. That is just part of the game here. We all have to deal with it on during local tournaments, you just have to factor it into your strategy. If you plan on fishing obvious stuff, better get there early and don't plan on leaving if you want to fish it again later in the day.

Now that being said, I am obviously not gonna watch the live stream all week, and show up Saturday morning where somebody has been fishing all week. But I do plan on going fishing. If it happens to be where some pro wants to fish and is cordial, I would be more than happy to let them fish alongside me or even yield the area to him. But don't expect me to just bend over and take it from you because you have a wrap on your boat.

Well put and I agree. If shown the proper level of respect, I would probably move on and let them have the spot. Would even hope it put them over the top. Those guys are fishng for $100k. Heck FLW may be the smallest tourney on the lake this weekend.

Agreed. Its all about the approach, if they come up to me and are respectful about it, I will be willing to fish a spot with them.. but I am not going to move and go somewhere else. I took the time and effort to get out on the water and put myself in my spot, I am not going to leave just because you are fishing for a living... I am fishing so I won't step off the ledge. Everyone needs to fish for their own reasons, and I don't put a lot of stock in assigning which one is more important.

I agree with all that. I'm a fan too and have enjoyed keeping up with it throughout the week, especially since its on our lake.

But it was funny, on day 1 when he was commenting on the boats around him, the camera showed 1 of them and it didn't look that close at all, especially for the back of CFP - couple hundred yards off. Then he actually said that he wished that they would shut the lake down during their events. I thought to myself c'mon Edwin. thats crazy talk right there. Just deal with it dude. We do - year round.

I agree that is crazy talk...I probably have a narrow minded and biased view since I still work and most of my fishing is on weekends but I always thought that the guy that plans his entire year for a weeks vacation on a lake with his wife, or child, or dad should be given some consideration as you would think the pros being pros would have more than enough waypoints or spots or other areas to fish. Somewhat the same for tournament anglers as well and perhaps if I were on the other side of the fence I would see that different but I have always given the people I suspect to be on a family trip or vacation trip a wide berth

Imagine being on fish in Chester Frost and expecting that you will have the area all to yourself for a tourney on a Saturday in April lol. I'd love to be able to fish anywhere I wanted on the lake during a tournament too, but that ain't how it works, especially on this pond. If they don't like fishing in a crowd, should have held the damn thing on Parksville or Nickajack.

How many boats are fishing the chick on any given Saturday in the Spring? Gotta be close to in the thousands right? Think about the ego it takes to believe that your tournament is so important that 1000s of people should just sit at home so you can have the run of the place. And spare me the BS about fishing for a living. You made that decision, not me. Doesn't matter if your fishing for $100k or just trying to catch a mess of crappie for dinner, everyone deserves equal access and opportunity to fish public water.

I had several of them set right down on me yesterday-Evers was one of them. He didn't appear to be aggravated but probably unhappy when he couldn't get in on the pocket I was anchored in and saw me boat one, lol. He's been camped out in DB for most of the event but this was up river on his way in.

A lot of these pro's are sporting about local competition but many of them spend too much time in the mirror with an air hose in their ear, lol. Fame can be very inflating. They also have their reputation and career at stake so sportsmanship is paramount in which most of them keep their cool. I have seen and heard that EE can get quite testy- even with the boat officials. Most of them that I have spoken with are quite cool and don't let ego control their actions.

Agreed, Silvertalon, most pros are grateful to get to fish for a living and are conscious that other fishermen are why they have their jobs. It’s mostly bass fishermen who watch pro bass fishing.
