I'm in. I never enter anything like this, but hey it's free so why not.

Within our group, it already has us "ranked" based on our picks. How can that be when there hasn't been a tournament? Is that based on odds/favorites?

Based on pro's pre - tourny ranking. Kinda funny since they're in alphabetical order, but I guess their computer is programed to do it any way. Glad to have you on board, it's free, fun and you have as much chance to "GUESS" as good as anybody out there. Good luck.

I don't fish tournaments or keep up with them much, but from what little I have seen that's a really good sack on Sinclair. I'm used to hearing about 11 to 14 pounds being the winning weight. I'm tempted to go out a few hours tonight after 6 and see if the rain and warm temps turned them on.

Under 12 hours to go, and we're up to 34 in our group. For you new folks, remember that you can keep up with tourny news all day long on the Bassmasters web site and watch the live weigh ins at 3:30pm eastern every day.

Default Sinclair Money

I used to fish 3 Tourneys in row at Sinclair starting in early February and running til' early March for years. Most of those tourneys it's a 25-28lb. sack to win.
Have placed in the money a whole lot of times and have had 2nd Big fish money. Caught my biggest Bass from public water there along with lot's of 4-5-6 lb. fish. Have had to dip rod in water to un-freeze the eyes on my rods, but yet still catch large fish in 2-3 ft. water on man made structure.
The secret??? Fish down stream and across the lake where the warm water steam plant creek dumps into the river and warms the temps up and big bass get hungry early to fatten up for the spawn!
Of course you remember they changed the flow of the steam plant due to fish die-offs in the too warm water near the plant. It still fishes good maybe not as good as it used to be, but will still be warmer and nice fish gotta eat.
After March it's like fish a summertime pond, too warm.
And that's a fact Jack! It is slam full of catfish too some nice ones, but especially the little squealers that I like!

Well, day one's in the books and I'm already in a 500+ points hole. I can't believe some from Dadeville can't fish any better on Martin than Kellye Jaye did today.

I talked Shannon into signing up last night. We can't figure out how she can pick her team. I'm talking about for the next tournament as this one is locked down of course.
Batjack, which one are you on there?

Also, how come some guys who's weight is the same after 2 days are tied for a position while another couple with the same weight are in separate back to back positions?

I'm Stonehenge on there. She won't be able to pick her team until after this tourny ends and all the points are final, then they'll open it up. As for your 2nd question, that's something deep in the Elite's scoring rules and I haven't got a clue. Prob. something to do with their list of tie breakers, which is a long list, but sometimes they still end up tied, especially in the first tourny.
Day two in the books and I'm a little bit better off, just 444 points behind now, but the two guys I counted on are out. Still can't see how 2 guys, 1 with a house ON lake Martin (Kelley Jaye) and 1 grows up 10 miles away (Greg Vinson) can fish so bad there when a guy from Texas that's never seen the lake is tearing them up.

Congratulations to you.

I'm not in last place, but not far from it. One of my picks missed the final day by 1 oz.

If we have internet at home tonight we'll get it done. Ours is out again.....it usually goes when we have a lot of rain. Small price to pay for living out in the country.

Exactly!! Everyone says it's a whole new ball game at Sinclair now. Even though I've lived here all my life, I never really fished the lake so I don't have to adjust from the good ole days. Instead I just have to adjust to things being different from fishing the river or ponds and small lakes.

I went out last night and caught 7. My best 5 might have been a decent sack at Lake Martin apparently. LOL Biggest one was about 3 1/2, but I didn't weigh them. Conditions were great, but the fog was so thick I didn't really get to fish places I wanted to. That was my first time being on the lake at night in fog. It rolled in thick AFTER I had gotten a long way from the ramp. I wish I'd realized how bad it would be.

Fog can be a very scary thing on a lake!

24 days till the Classic. The pundits haven't put in their 2 cents worth yet (they're wrong about 75% of the time anyway) on the fantasy site, but I just thought I'd bump this back up before it get's pushed off the front page. Good picks to all.
