Dan is gathering valuable info from the pros at the Detroit River tournament to pass along when he gets a spare minute or two.  Lots to come in the future. 

Here is DJK with Michigan pro, Kevin Vida

Who and why was Dan taking video from the pros coming off the stage? Sounds like he was getting some serious info.

The past two days have been amazing. I'm going out in a media boat tomorrow to get some GREAT stuff (I hope) for all of you who can't be there to see it happen up close and personal.

Some extremely good interviews Friday. Lots of good pictures today and hopefully better ones tomorrow. All part of the 'master' plan for the kind of information I want to provide to members of GreatLakesBass.com. The folks at FLW are fantastic when it comes to helping out with so many things. The FUN ZONE and the weigh in show make me want to go out and fish in 20 foot waves... do whatever it takes to get up on that stage with a big bag of fish!!! For now, I'll settle on puting together as much good information as I can for everyone.

I wish I would have known that was you at the weigh in Dan, I have yet to actually meet you.  I was standing there waiting for Terry Baksay while you were interviewing him.  What a great experience, it's going to be hard for me to go back to fishing the BFL's after the last week.  The coolest part is when the Helicopter comes down on top of the boat while you are running.  I almost could have touched the heli it was so close CRAZY :o.  I hope someday I make the top 10 on the pro side.

A friend of mine has been out practicing for the Elite series next week working on techniques and has got some giants around Pelee.

Isn't the Elite out of Buffalo?  Am I crazy to think Pelee might be a bit out of range?

I would hope nobodt try's to run to Pelee from Buffalo. LOL He is a co-angler on the AutoZone team and was just trying out some different baits.

Scott, I was a little brain-fried as usual on Friday trying to keep track of who was coming up and what questions we had for them, and how long. I'm not used to trying to interview so many people in such a short time. We talked about the bag line, but the lighting is poor in that area of the tent.

So I missed a lot of people I wanted to talk to there despite all the ones I did catch. Sorry to everyone I missed. And Scott, I was rooting for you... not quite as hard as for my good friend Ben, but you were my 2nd choice ;D

I think I got some pictures of you so don't be surprised if they pop up. Maybe not the best ones because I was in the wrong spot while you guys did your final weigh in, but I'll go through what I have.

Congratulations for a great tournament... and yeah, that helicopter was something else. That son of a gun snuck up on us and completely caught me off guard. I almost wet myself when he came out of no where a couple hundred feet away from directly behind us. The camera guy was actually laughing at my reaction!!!! Lucky I couldn't get him wet... He didn't mess with us for more than 5 seconds seeing as how a certain Chevy Leader Boat Ranger Z20 was a hundred yards ahead of us being driven by a certain soon to be $200,000 MAN!!!

I think the crane boat operator was the helo pilots brother. He tried to ram us with the crane - those guys are wild!!! He knew we were media and filmed us anyway - I think he was actually just looking for Slim Jims!

What an experience... and I wasn't even fishing in it!
