The team of Ryan Hyatt and Dale LaBelle roared off from Lake Despair Lodge this morning as part of the second flight of the “Castin’ for Cash” bass tournament. They were the second-last team to leave in the 68-boat field. Competitors are angling today and tomorrow in an attempt to snag the $5,000 first prize, with the weigh-ins starting at 3:30 p.m. both days.
