at this time( I am watching the weight in live....online) there are 12 guys that have now made the century mark
(100+) pounds...un heard of .... :shock: AND the next 12 are all in the 90's and 80's Sick !!!!!!!...This is the place ..it's down in Texas just on the mexico boarder ....

This is by far the biggest haul i have 'ever' seen on the Elite Series.....wow

...I think even we could catch a few.....LOL

Dam even one monster would make it worth while :wink:

Terry Scroggins! 5 fish 44lbs.!!!!! Thats almost a nine pound average. WTF
I fished Clear Lake last year while they were having the Golden State shootout. All the pro's said it was the best lake on the circuit. I guess they found a new favorite. I want to go there too.

- Skeet Reese, to the audience at Saturday's Lone Star Shootout weigh-in

"This is truly the bass fishing capital of the world."
- Shaw Grigsby, on Falcon Lake at Saturday's weigh-in

"I know I'm good for another 10 or 15 years, after it held up from all the abuse this week."
- Dustin Wilks, about his elbow, which was surgically repaired, causing him to miss a year of competition on the Elite Series

"These are the most volatile fish I've ever hooked in my life."
- Paul Elias, on the fighting ability of Falcon Lake's largemouth bass

"I've never in my life seen fish that are so mean."
- Marty Stone, on the bass in Falcon Lake

"You can say what you want about California. You can say what you want about Florida. But southern Texas and Falcon Lake has the best bass fishing in America."
- Scott Rook

It was a 4 day tourny so 20 fish at 132lbs is like over a 6.8lb average :shock:
It was funny watching these guys throwing back 5lb fish cuz they were too small .
