Walker Leaves Chickamauga Lake With Head Held High

Walker Leaves Chickamauga Lake With Head Held High

A consistent weekend on Chickamauga Lake just wasn't enough for pro angler David Walker to make the top-50 cut at the Bassmaster BASSfest in Dayton.

Having a "typical Tennessee" day, as the Cabela's/GEICO For Your Boat Elite angler would put it, Walker brought in 21 pounds, 9 ounces over the first two days at BASSfest

"My mindset for BASSfest was to fish to win," Walker said, "but I've been fishing for points and checks for too many years to try and fish differently this week. As soon as I went a couple of hours without a bite, I found myself falling back to areas where I knew I could find a few bites.

"The first day I did give up a little too early and tried to salvage the day. The second day I stuck with ledge fishing and got bites but not the kind I really needed. It seemed like all the other guys fishing in the same area would get big fish and I would catch a 2-pounder or a short fish. It was strange and I don't know what that difference was, but I can't change a 2-pounder into a 5-pounder."

Looking for redemption, Walker joined the rest of the anglers who didn't make the top-50 cut on Nickajack Lake Friday. After bringing in 11 pounds, 15 ounces in the second-chance round, Walker missed the cut to extend his BASSfest tournament to another day by less than 2 pounds.

"Fishing Nickajack Lake without having any practice or any idea of where to go or where to throw it really made me scramble," Walker said. "It was a short day to begin with, and I basically ran to almost the bottom end of the lake and fished my way back. The logic was to run and see as much of it as I could in a short amount of time instead of wondering what was around the corner.

"That's what I did this morning, I fished my way back and I found a spot that had quite a few fish on it. Without having any history or knowledge of Nickajack Lake you don't know if you're wasting your time or if you're doing the right thing. I stuck with it and tried to cull my way up into the top 10. Had I known what was being caught by the other anglers I would have left that area much earlier."
