Update from the bayou!

      - Larry Triplett had to totally change his fishing approach during the day. It worked!! He started catching fish and culling some of the smaller ones, and lost a good one. He had 8 lbs and 3 ounces total weight today.  One of the fish spit up a big shad in the live well and he was surprised by the size of it (not allowed to include it in weigh bag).

     Larry did wear "arm candy" (snickers, butterfingers, and baby Ruth bars) on his jersey – Bassmaster’s Tyler Wade couldn't stop laughing as Hank was eating the candy off of Larry's shirt on stage! - have to find the video on

     Weather is changing and they’re calling for brief lightning storms in the morning and then cloudy skies all day, so everything could change again.  He's in the hunt for the Western Division title.  

     Several contenders (including WY) with bigger sacks are using little aluminum boats so they can go places that Larry’s "new kitty" (aka Bass Cat boat) can't go.

     Two more days to go. He's in first flight tomorrow - live weigh-in starts at 2:30 CST on-line.  I will be at the Presidents meeting - will miss the wine tasting and Duck Dynasty outing for family members tomorrow. 

     We greatly appreciate your ongoing support and encouragement!!
