Bass Master Classic 2011 Day 3: What to Expect

Bass Master Classic: Day 3
Sunday,  February 20, 2011
Louisiana Delta
New Orleans, La.
By Luigi De Rose

Day Three will bring many changes to the game. Here is a run down of what to expect today.
-  Full day of fishing for everyone. A must for Chapman who is the only angler in the top 6 going to Venice.
-  Classic field cut to only the top 25 anglers today.
-  More boats (fans, media, TV crews) but less fishing pressure from other competitors. Respect is a huge factor on day 3.
-  Fish are spawning or setting up to spawn. If a fishing area has clear water sight fishing can be done. Dean 
   Rojas explained his first two bass (both 4 pound each) yesterday were bed fish.
-  Fish that are just setting up on the bed bite funny. Aaron Martens has a lot of trouble keeping fish hooked on Day 2.  
   Rojas said he had that problem on Day 1. (More on Rojas in later posts)
- Wind: might make fishing good but may muddy other areas making pin point casts to underwater targets difficult or
  even impossible.
- Boat traffic might spook any bedding bass or muddy water reducing visibility. More boats = more trouble.
- STRESS! This is the Classic. It is not just a tournament. Everyone except Van Dam might crack. He might crack but no one
  is betting on it. No One!
Stay Tuned!
