Tournament Schedule, FLW Fantasty Bass Fishing and more

First of all my 2007 Tournament Schedule is pretty much set, got all the entry fees sent in, except for the Pan-O-Prog, they have not opened registration, but in checking their website, they have finally got last years pictures up, so I added them to my Tournament Entry from the Pan-O-Prog.  Anyways it looks to be another ambitious year on the water, but that is a good thing.

CLARK WENDLANDT got off to a great start on FLW Season Opener on Lake Travis, TX.  He established a nearly 4lb lead.  Its not clear how he caught, but he made it sound as though he did not burn his fish and that only calm winds would hamper his bite.  I am glad Clark is anchoring my fantasy team.

Place Pro Angler Feb 15, 2007 Place FLW Standings Total Points Last Tournament Points
1     CLARK WENDLANDT  1  –  0  0
2     ANTHONY GAGLIARDI  84  –  0  0
3     DAVID FRITTS  56  –  0  0
4     RAY SCHEIDE  107  –  0  0
5     SHINICHI FUKAE  43  –  0  0

Its a solid start, but nothing fantastic, if Clark can hold on and some of other guys make a surge I could have a nice finish on this tourney.

None of our MN anglers faired well on the first day:

123 JIM MOYNAGH CARVER, MN 2 5-07     2 5-07              
141 CHAD GRIGSBY MAPLE GROVE, MN 4 4-08     4 4-08              
168 KAREN SAVIK ST. LOUIS PARK, MN 2 2-11     2 2-11              

I also talked to one of MN’s JWC qualifiers, Cody Sieben, he has had a rough early practice, but seems upbeat and I advised him to soak up as much info as he could tomorrow when he is out practicing with one of the Classic qualifiers.  I think if his Pro can help him and his partner get around some fish tomorrow he has the skills to catch them, he used a drop shot to qualify for this tourney and that should serve him well with the 45 deg water temps on Lake Logan Martin.

Also one more important note from

KVD = Toyota 2/15/2007

A lot of BassFans probably remember Kevin VanDam fishing in a Chevy bowtie jersey. Those days are gone, of course, because Chevy pulled out of BASS sponsorship a few years back. Chevy does sponsor FLW Outdoors now, but VanDam fishes only BASS, and he hasn’t been associated with a motor company since that time. That all changed an hour or so ago when Toyota announced that it had signed VanDam, the No. 1 ranked angler in the world, to its Tundra team.

I suppose that is enough excitement for one entry, tight lines all and Good Luck Cody!!!
