Alan McGuckin of Dynamic Sponsorships got some numbers-oriented info from a few Classic competitors prior to the day-2 launch at Lake Guntersville.
Five lures KVD says he will have tied on during day 2: Red Eye Shad, KVD 1.5 squarebill crankbait, a 3/8-ounce pitching jig, a KVD jerkbait and a Strike King Rage Blade.
Four Ingredients KVD says are in Sherry VanDam’s lucky cookies: Sugar, peanut butter, chocolate chips and brown sugar.
Three things 30-time Classic qualifier Gary Klein says he’ll do Saturday to make up for a horrible one-keeper Friday: “Catch ‘em. Catch ‘em and Catch ‘em. That’s three, isn’t it? No really, I’m not sure I would change a thing about what I did yesterday – it’s just that the bites I had in those areas during practice never materialized.”
Two things Terry Scroggins learned on day 1: “These fish are highly location-specific, they ain’t just scattered all over the lake. And secondly, I didn’t fish shallow enough yesterday.”
One thing Quantum pro Casey Ashley says he did right yesterday to catch 23 pounds and land in 4th place after day 1: “I stuck with the same bait all day long – a red/orange lipless crankbait.”
