Congrats to Aaron Martens on getting his first big win with BASS, even though he has won a lot of big tournaments in the past, this had to mean a lot. Also note, Derek Remitz continues to impress all with a runner up finish at the Delta. Derek just needs to keep making Top 50 cuts and he will be fishing the Classic again as well as the Major’s. They have yet to update the ROY or AOY standings from yesterday yet. The coverage of the weigh-in and the new pre-game show “Hooked-Up” was pretty good on Bassmaster.com yesterday.
I also read a very interesting note in my latest FLW mag. Vermont has banned all lead sinkers & weights less then 1/2oz not including jigs, spinnerbaits, etc. So basically if you want to fish a texas rig worm, you need to be using steel, brass, bismuth or tungsten sinkers in Vermont. Add Vermont to the growing list of states with Lead Bans, which also include parts of Canada & New Hampshire. States like Maine & New York have banned the sale of sinkers weighing less then 1oz. MN has similar current legislation, but they do not have clear language that would exclude jigs, spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, etc. That could make bass fishing in MN very expensive if that is not clarified. We should all be contacting our representatives about this.
My trip to Charlotte last week was frustrating because it left no time for blogging, and put me behind when I got back to the office. I also in one day, drove over Lake Wylie, then by a big new Bass Pro Shops and then over lakes High Rock & Norman
