Day one of the LBAAtournament on Old Hickory Lake began with a bang as a thunderstorm rolled in tobegin the launch. A day of rain and over cast skies on a lake filled withfloating debris, the ladies showed their determination and skill by returningto the weigh in with several limits and several large bass in their live-wells.Each angler had story to tell at the weigh in of the floating logs that werehidden in the waves of the choppy muddy water from the flooded banks of OldHickory. Recent weather in the Middle Tennessee Area has the lake filled.
The anglers endured the weather and found bassweighing in impressive limits. Pam Martin Wells leads the way with a 5 basslimit weighing in at 16.74 Lbs. with Lynda Gessner closing in with a closesecond place only ounces away from the leader with her limit of 16.53 lbs. Onthe co-angler side, Jan Bruner holds the lead with a 9.84 lb limit. DanielleMcRae was today's Big Bass angler weighing her biggest fish in at 5.32 Lbs. Veryimpressive bags brought to the scales by many of today competitors.
The bass of OldHickory are cooperating with the ladies, even if the weather hasn't, however, day two will be very exciting with theweather predicted to be better later in the morning. With the current standings one fish can movean angler to the top of the board, making this a very exciting event all aroundfor everyone involved. Tomorrows launch will again be well into safe light dueto the amount of debris in the water. The weather forecast looks much betterfor day two.
The Live weigh inwill again be at the Hendersonville Sam’s Club, all that can come and support theladies and see the event in person. If you’re not in the area you can always watchthe live video stream on line. I hope to see you there.
