I knew the Saturday cut was 35, but was just assuming Sunday was 12 (since the opens go top 12 on the last day as well).  Statistically, it makes more sense to go from 35 to 10, so you may be correct.

After day 1:  80th% overall, 14th in BR group.

 

I was worried that "picked the wrong Johnston" would be this year's version of "picked the wrong Lane" from years past...but happy to see both Chris and Cory show up big so far.

 

 

It looks like four of us are tied for 14th at 1,126 points...

Who did you pick in his place ?  I never swap  because I have done the same thing .

 

I had Chris Johnston and Brandon Lester wrote down for bucket B and picked Lester . He finished 12th so it wasnt to bad .

An ok start: 77th percentile overall, 14th in the BR group.  

 

Just wish I had taken somebody other than Combs for Bucket A (yup, I had him too).  He has now done that to me 3 or 4 times in a row in the events that I've picked him.

 

Wow, just checked the schedule again -- back-to-back events with Lanier happening immediately this week.

Tied for fourth in the group and in the 890’s overall. Not the greatest start, had Gustafson not bombed day 1 I might be looking at lot better. I’m ready for this week to start though.

What an event. Congrats to Clunn for getting it done. And I'm in the same boat with Combs. He's so inconsistent. He can be top 5 at a lake one event, bottom 20 next time there, and then top 10 again next time there. He burns me every time I pick him. 

 

 

In other news, the Lake Lanier tournament starts on Thursday. So you only have 2.5 days to get your picks submitted for that.

A crystal ball, a divining rod, and some tarot cards.

I base my picks on guys who are local(ish) to that body of water, past history on a body of water, and style of fishing that lake may favor to an angler (is it a flipping lake? river system? smallmouth lake? deep cranking?) and try to pick the best that I can. 

 

But what do I know? I'm in 68th of the 74 guys here who are playing.

I  just   go with  hunch and I suck at it .For instance I'm picking Cappo this next tourney because it may be a    finesse spotted bass event and he is so huge most people will think he cant fish that way ., and  he might not be able to , I dont know but that is my hunch . Plus he is   a firefighter and so am I  .

It's the facial expression -- this is clearly a man of great determination.
