Fans who went to the CenturyLink Center in Shreveport, La. expecting to see 20-pound bags during the day-1 weigh-in at the Bassmaster Classic were disappointed. What they did see was a bunch of anglers laying the foundation for a run at the title in the sport's premier event, which is making its second stop at the Red River in the past 4 years.

Two Alabama residents on the verge of becoming Elite Series stars led the way – Keith Poche (who was born in Louisiana) sacked 17-13 to snare the early lead in his initial Classic appearance, and Greg Vinson is just an ounce behind. The Top 10 are separated by precisely 3 pounds and 17 competitors – more than a third of the field of 49 – are within 5 pounds of the No. 1 slot.

Two-time defending champion Kevin VanDam is not currently among that group. His 11-pound stringer left him in 27th place – two spots below where the cutline will fall after tomorrow's weigh-in. Considering how tightly the field is packed, however, and the ever-changing conditions on the Red, nobody is writing off KVD in his pursuit of an unprecedented third straight crown and fifth of his stellar career.

Steady veterans Dustin Wilks and David Walker occupy the Nos. 3 and 4 positions with 16-09 and 16-08, respectively. Ott DeFoe, one of the top young guns along with Poche and Vinson, is 5th with 16-06.

The 6th spot is a tie between the Florida-bred Lane brothers: Chris (now living in Alabama) and Bobby both bagged 16-04.

Here's a look at the Top 20, with deficit margin from the leader indicated by red numbers in parentheses:

1. Keith Poche: 17-13
2. Greg Vinson: 17-12 (0-01)
3. Dustin Wilks: 16-09 (1-04)
4. David Walker: 16-08 (1-05)
5. Ott DeFoe: 16-06 (1-07)
6. (tie) Chris Lane: 16-04 (1-09)
6. (tie) Bobby Lane: 16-04 (1-09)
8. Edwin Evers: 16-03 (1-10)
9. Jamie Horton: 14-15 (2-14)
10. Bill Lowen: 14-13 (3-00)
11. (tie) Matt Reed: 14-08 (3-05)
11. (tie) Terry Scroggins: 14-08 (3-05)
13. Greg Hackney: 13-15 (3-14)
14. (tie) Aaron Martens: 13-14 (3-15)
14. (tie) Takahiro Omori: 13-14 (3-15)
16. Alton Jones: 13-13 (4-00)
17. Keith Combs: 13-09 (4-04)
18. Davy Hite: 13-08 (4-05)
19. (tie) Marty Robinson: 12-08 (5-05)
19. (tie) Andrew Upshaw: 12-08 (5-05)

Most of the field opted to remain in Pool 5, but Poche and Vinson were two of about 18 anglers who locked down to Pool 4, where they had productive areas mostly to themselves. That's an extremely rare commodity in this event as the vast majority of the best backwaters are being divvied up by multiple competitors.

The heavy southerly winds that swept the area on Thursday altered the complexion of much of the fishery, which the field had last seen on Wednesday. Places that featured relatively clear water on the last practice day had become muddy messes, and the reverse was true in other locales.

Numerous patterns are in play, and most anglers who weighed strong bags today were naturally reluctant to reveal much about how they went about compiling them. The warmer conditions of the previous few days prompted a lot of fish to begin their move toward shallow water in preparation for the spawn, but the chilly overnight air may halt that migration and cause many to backtrack a bit.

Greg Vinson's day turned out to be much better than he'd anticipated.

The field will basically be cut in half – to the Top 25 – after tomorrow's weigh-in. The winner will be determined Sunday by highest cumulative weight.

Big Bed-Fish Boosts Poche

> Day 1: 5, 17-13

Poche spent most of the day casting among the stumps in his uncrowded oxbow, but pulled his best fish (a 6-13) off a bed. He went through more than 20 keepers and also lost a couple of fish that might've helped him.

"When you're making long casts like I was, sometimes it's hard to get them back to the boat," he said. "It'd be nice to figure out a way to get all those fish in.

"I really didn't think I had that much, but when they were all put together they weighed almost 18 pounds. I'll take it."

He spoke with Vinson following the weigh-in and discovered that their best pools are on opposite sides of the river. He's confident that he has plenty of fish left to sustain him throughout the event.

"There's definitely enough in there – the thing's going to be getting them to eat after the cool weather tonight. I'll check the water temperature in the morning and I might have to slow down, maybe flip a little bit and take my time. That'll be a game-day decision.

“This is a blur right now. My first Bassmaster Classic, at home in Louisiana, and I’m the leader. I don’t know what to say.”

2nd: Vinson’s Discovery Pays Off

Day 1: 5, 17-12

Vinson thought that he had a good thing going in Pool 4 after practice. He just didn’t know how good until today.

But after catching nearly 20 keepers – including a 5-06 on a spinnerbait – he has little doubt now about where he’ll be fishing this weekend.

“No, it didn’t go according to plan – it was actually better," he said. "It’s kind of unusual for a tournament day to go better than you expected based on your practice. I saw some things today that made me feel like I could catch fish regardless of the conditions.

"When I found the area, it was during some of the most miserable conditions you can imagine and I got quality bites then – just didn’t get as many. Today I got a lot more bites. If we have a cold night tonight, I feel like I can still catch fish in there. It will just come down to getting those quality bites.”

He said he spent 2 of the 4 practice days in that area and has only seen two other boats in there since he first discovered it. The water in there today was 62 degrees.

He caught keeper fish on at least four different baits – maybe five.

"I feel like I understand what's going on in there and I feel like I can make the right adjustments. It's going to come down to how many quality fish are in that area, and time will tell."

3rd: Wilks’ Area Beaten Up

Day 1: 5, 16-09

Despite crowded conditions, Wilks boated a limit in Pool 5 that propelled him toward the top of the early leaderboard. He’s not sure that he can do it again in the same spot tomorrow, however.

“I had high hopes to catch them on one pass through an area," he said. "I really didn’t know what to expect. It started out slow and I had to make some adaptations to figure them out. Once I figured them out, it was easier, but everybody else figured them out at the same time, too. (Then) they got beat up pretty bad.

"I might make a change tomorrow, I’m not sure. I think the pressure hurt it so bad today that I’m not sure that I can keep catching them tomorrow in there or not. But it’s a good problem to have.”

He fished primarily with a shallow-diving, flat-sided crankbait that he said works well in cooler water.

"The wind was the key – it made it much better because it (muffled) the noise from all the boats. If it was calm, it would've been bad because the fish would've been skittish.

"There was so many of them caught today that it's going to be tougher tomorrow regardless of the weather."

4th: Walker Enjoys Classic Return

Day 1: 5, 16-08

David Walker, fishing his first Classic since 2006 after a stint on the FLW Tour, had a strong opening day.

"I’m very satisfied," he said. "I feel like I fished a very good first third of the tournament and now I’ve just got to get back out there and keep doing that. I still believe that at any time I could catch a really big stringer. I mean, this is the best time of the year for that to happen. A 20-plus pound bag, it should be expected (here) and shouldn’t be a surprise.

“Today I had a real solid bunch of fish. I didn’t have a big one and I really wished I did."

Those following the BassTrakk feature at were led to believe that his first fish of the day was a 7 1/2-pounder, but that proved to be a recording error on the part of his marshal.

"When that guy told me about that, I said ‘Boy, my wife is going to be (upset) at you!' he cracked. "A 7-pounder, are you kidding me? He said, ‘Well, I punched in 2 pounds and then I punched in 87 ounces and that comes out to 7 pounds and something.’

"At that time I only had three fish and I said, ‘Boy, are you in trouble."

5th: Something Different for DeFoe

> Day 1: 5, 16-06

Like nearly everyone else in Pool 5, DeFoe had plenty of company in his most productive patch. He boated a dozen keepers in the crowded backwater area and lost one fish he estimated to be about 3 pounds.

About whether his area could hold up for 3 days, he said: "I'm actually more worried about the weather than I am the pressure. The amount of traffic definitely impacts what I'm doing, but the weather will ultimately dictate the bite."

He was tight-lipped about his methods, but did say that he's "definitely doing something a little different" that he believes is netting him more bites.

"Some people in that area caught them better than I did today, but I like what I'm doing," he added. "I will say that I'm definitely not just junk-fishing. I've got two different things that I'm keying into."

He also noted that one of his keeper bites came on light line.

"I'm going to stay with the same thing tomorrow. The bite's going to get tougher and I'm trying to mentally prepare for that. I think the best day to catch them was today."

6th: B. Lane Mixed it Up

Day 1: 5, 16-04

Like a good Cajun chef, Bobby Lane added a little bit of this and a little bit of that to cook up a 6th-place tie with younger brother Chris.

“I wanted to weigh in over 15 pounds today and came in with 16-04 (even though) that wind was brutal,” he said. “I hadn’t really been to that area I fished in 3 or 4 days, but it was good to see plenty of fish in there and it was an enjoyable morning.

“I caught them shallow; I caught them doing a lot of things. You can crank ‘em, throwing spinnerbaits, throwing a worm around, pitching a craw around. When you find the fish on the Red River they bite, so it’s not so much what you throw at them – it’s more what do they want to bite the best.”

After landing 30-plus keepers on the day – including a 4 3/4-pounder, he plans to make the 35-mile run back to Pool 4 for Day 2.

“I’ve got a great pre-spawn spot. The problem is that the water cleaned up a little bit and I went in there late this afternoon and fished it for about 20 minutes and actually caught one of the fish I weighed in.

“If it's slow in the morning where I caught them today, then I might shift over there and see if those fish pulled back out. There’s a little bit of grass growing out in about 2 feet of water that some big fish were holding on. Actually, where Greg Vinson is fishing is where I think my fish went to, so it’s going to be interesting to see how this thing plays out.”

6th: Late Move Aided C. Lane

> Day 1: 5, 16-04

Chris Lane spent much of the day jockeying for position in a backwater with John Crews and Marty Robinson, but it was a move later in the day that allowed him to bring in a sack identical in weight to his older brother's.

"It was like NASCAR – we were bumping boats and we were three-wide and we were running each other into the stumps," he said. "But those are two class-act guys and we worked it out and it was fantastic. We all got in there safe and we got out safe."

When he left that scene he went to an area he'd found Wednesday and popped a 3 1/2-pounder that allowed him to make his final cull.

"I slowed down a little bit and pitched up by a log and caught it. That took me from about 14 1/2 pounds to over 16."

He threw a couple of different brands and colors of tubes and boated a bunch of keepers – maybe as many as 30.

"I don't know if the colder weather will push them back tomorrow, but it might make it a tough bite in the shallow water. But I can go out to where the boat's sitting in 8 or 9 feet and pitch up to 3 or 4. If they do push off, I'll still have room to catch them."

8th: Evers Surprised

> Day 1: 5, 16-03

Evers flashed his trademark smile as he discussed his solid day.

“I’m real happy to have what I had today,” he said. “It’s just a matter of trying to go out there tomorrow and do it again.”

Dustin Wilks caught a strong bag today, but questions whether he can do it again on day 2.

While he was somewhat coy on where he fished and how long his run was, he did admit that he was surprised by how well many Classic anglers did on day 1.

“They caught them a lot better than I thought they would. I thought it would be a little tougher and they caught them (today) pretty darned good.”

9th: Horton Stayed Put

> Day 1: 5, 14-15

Federation Nation qualifier Jamie Horton was surprised he didn't have more company on his stretch in Pool 5.

"I had a little bigger area to myself than I expected and I fished it for all it was worth," he said. "I was very fortunate to catch what I caught. I got seven bites today and I landed every fish."

He had two other locations that he wanted to look at today, but elected to linger at a single spot and try to learn as much as he could about how it lays out. He said he "practiced" much of the day and feels confident he's figured something out that he can build on tomorrow.

"I had more rods on my front deck this morning than I've ever had out in a tournament. I caught every one of my fish on a different bait. I'll still mostly be junk-fishing and practicing again tomorrow, but I think that extra time I spent in my spot today should pay off."

11th: Reed Shared With Lowen

> Day 1: 5, 14-08

Texan Matt Reed locked down to Pool 4 and estimated his total time spent with a line in the water at 5 hours. In that duration he scrounged up seven keepers and boated every fish that he hooked. He called the bite "weird" and attributed that to fish trying to spawn.

"You can't see anything, but I think there are some fish that have moved on (to beds)," he noted. "I'm moving really slow and trying to fish my areas thoroughly. I hate to fish slow, but that's how you have to catch them right now."

He fished a single stretch all day and had it to himself until Bill Lowen set up shop close by in the afternoon. Reed said he'll live or die in the same place on day 2.

"I hope we can make those fish last a couple more days, but I don't know. It's a pretty small area.

"I'm really praying the wind stays up tomorrow," he added. "I'm already fishing a protected area and if it slicks off, it's going to get awfully tough."

14th: Martens Rallied Late

> Day 1: 5, 13-14

Martens slugged out of the gate and struggled to find a groove early. He only connected on one of his first nine bites and was so amped up that he yanked a dink out of the water so hard that it slapped him in the forehead.

"I don't really feel like those missed bites were execution mistakes," he said. "They're just biting funny.

"It started off as one of those days where nothing was going right," he added. "My braid kept getting wrapped around my rod tip. I'd flip my bait to a mat and it wouldn't punch through. I feel like I spent half of my morning without a bait in the water. The winds had a lot to do with it, but I just felt out of sync."

He camped in Pool 5 and worked through two areas without a keeper before he finally picked up some momentum and boated five fish in less than 2 hours at his third stop. He kept a spinning rod in his hand most of the day and believes he's picking off fish that other competitors are glossing over.

"When I got into that third spot most of the guys that had been there all day already had limits," he noted. "If I had gone there first thing this morning, I definitely would've had a bigger bag."

When asked if he could continue to coax bites out of the overly pressured backwater bass, he smiled and said: "That's what I do best."

He plans to head back to the productive area first thing in the morning with hopes of tanking a quick limit. He'll play it off the cuff after that.

"If they keep biting (in his first area) I'll stay. I've got two other areas that I think are holding better fish. The southwest wind we had yesterday muddied up both of those places, but I think they should get better tomorrow. The key is getting those first five and then I can start making some decisions."

16th: Jones Dueled in Crowds

> Day 1: 5, 13-13

Alton Jones had hoped to catch a heavier day-1 bag, but said traffic in his best areas was heavy.

"There was a little more pressure than what I was expecting – I fished in crowds all day," he said. "The first place I went to was too small for four boats, which is what there would've been if I'd gone in, so I went to another place and caught a limit. Then I saw a couple of boats come out of the first place, so I went in there."

He caught about 20 keepers for the day and had a trio in the 3-pound range, but nothing bigger. He fished extremely shallow and thinks some of the fish might pull out to deeper water in the face of tonight's cooler temperatures.

"I'm concerned about that because it's real skinny water. I may switch up – fish my afternoon stuff in the morning and my morning stuff in the afternoon – and see if timing makes a difference."

18th: Hite Fairly Happy

> Day 1: 5, 13-08

Davy Hite was satisfied to be within striking distance of the top slot.

"To be honest, I wouldn't care to be leading the first day," he said. "When I won the Classic (in 1999) I wasn't leading on day 1, so that suits me just fine – it's rare for somebody to go wire-to-wire.

"I'm in the hunt after today, and that's all I can ask for."

David Walker caught a nice bag on his first day of Classic competition since 2006.

He spent the day in Pool 4 and caught about nine keepers, but none over 3 1/2 pounds. He employed a couple of different tactics and thinks he'll probably need to come up with something else for tomorrow.

"The way the weather's changing, with the different wind directions and the temperature rising and falling, you have to wing it a little bit and keep throwing different baits. Hopefully some of the experience I have will help me the rest of the way."

19th: Upshaw Lost Two

Day 1: 5, 12-08

Andrew Upshaw, the Classic's first-ever collegiate qualifier, has a fair amount of history on the Red and he fished some of it today.

"I'm actually in places that I usually fish in the summer," he noted. "The only difference in fishing these places now and in the summer is that I'm having to slow way down and pick everything apart."

He might have crossed the stage with a limit in the teens had he captured two key bites that eluded him early in the day. He plied a single locale for 18 keeper bites and intends to start day 2 right back where he left off. He said he's got two other places "with plenty of fish" if he can't make anything happen at his first stop.

A square-bill crankbait was his primary weapon on day 1 and he honed in on a very specific type of cover.

"I was looking for laydowns that were at a 90-degree angle to the bank – they have to come straight out off the bank," he noted. "I actually caught three fish off the same tree today.

"I don't think (the crankbait) is going to play tomorrow," he added. "I'll probably have a flipping stick in my hand all day. I don't plan on getting a lot of bites, but I think there's a chance my quality will improve."

21st: No Big Ones for Crews

> Day 1: 5, 11-15

Crews boated about 25 keepers, but his two best bites never made it into his boat.

"I caught a bunch, but I lost two that were probably a little over 3 pounds, and they would've helped me by a couple pounds," he said. "I feel like I need to do something different tomorrow. I've got a couple of areas with a lot of fish, and I'll try a different approach and see if I can upgrade.

"I just never got any big ones, and you need to get a couple of those every day."

23rd: Chapman Optimistic

> Day 1: 5, 11-14

Brent Chapman only scratched out six bites in Pool 5. He landed five, but said the one he lost likely would've added at least a pound to his total. He found a solid spinnerbait bite in practice, but that action fizzled today and he was forced to spend most of his time with a flipping stick in his hand.

"If the wind eases up tomorrow I think that will position some fish where I can get that spinnerbait deal going again," he noted. "I'm not going to downsize or do any light-line stuff tomorrow. I feel like I'm doing the right thing and my area can produce a limit that would put me in good shape for day 3. I'm just going to put my head down and try to figure out a way to squeeze some more bites out of there.

"Tomorrow is going to be completely opposite of today," he added. "I hear guys talking about this front and saying the bite's going to be tough, but I think it's actually going to get better. If the wind will stay down you might even see some areas closer to the main river come into play on the final day."

24th: Howell Worked a Crowd

> Day 1: 5, 11-11

Howell worked the same community hole in Pool 5 where Martens scored his afternoon limit and was encouraged to see some decent weights come from anglers nearby.

"That tells me the right fish are in there," he said. "It's really just a matter of cornering a little piece of water for yourself and catching every fish in that stretch. If you leave one behind somebody else is going to come behind you and find it."

The majority of the field relied on flipping and reaction baits. He did some of that, too, but he also worked a topwater into his scheme.

About his plans for day 2, he said: "I really don't have anywhere else I can go that I feel is going to produce better than where I fished today. After today all the productive water is pretty much spoken for, so I'll stay put.

"It's all just shallow water junk-fishing, so anybody can come out of there with a good bag. It's power-fishing, but you have to keep it slow. I think tomorrow that will be my main focus – slow down."

25th: Browning Caught Bucks

> Day 1: 5, 11-03

Stephen Browning caught a bunch of fish in Pool 4, but didn't connect with much quality.

"It was one of those deals where I was catching so many stinking fish, I couldn't leave," he said. "I caught a bunch of 2-pounders and they were all little buck bass – they were peeing all over themselves. But I just kept catching them and it was extremely hard to leave.

"I moved out and tried to find where the females were, but I just kept catching those cookie-cutters. I'll probably have to switch areas tomorrow."

27th: VanDam Looks For Rebound

Day 1: 5, 11-00

VanDam will look for a big day-2 rebound after a mediocre bag left him mired in the middle of the pack.

“I learned a good bit (today) about what to look for in certain areas," he said. "I spent a lot of time in dead water, but I feel good that these conditions (are) actually going to concentrate some of these fish a little bit better.

"They’ll pull back a little bit on some of these ditches and you can target them a little easier. Tomorrow is going to be really different. I think you’re going to see the leaderboard really change tomorrow."

He made it clear that he still considers himself a contender.

“I had 11 pounds, so I’m not out of it. I had a couple of opportunities at some really good fish today that would have been a big difference. You’ve just got to forget about it. When something like that happens, there’s nothing you can do to bring them back. I’m going to use what I learned today to try and improve on that tomorrow.

“It’s going to take 45 pounds to probably win this Classic. If it warms a little bit in the afternoon tomorrow and then on Sunday (it will help). It’s getting cold right now and if it stays cold, it’s not going to help anybody, that’s for sure. These fish are very sensitive to the water temperature changes here. Today really should have been the best day and I’m shocked the weights aren’t bigger.”
