Overstreet and I are in the truck headed down to a boat ramp in Pool 4, where there's a boat waiting for us. That's the advantage of being media -- we don't have to make the bat-out-of-hell run through the cold.
After catching less than 10 pounds on Day One, Todd Faircloth made a big move on the strength of an 18-12 limit yesterday.
Walker has relied on three baits this week: a chatterbait, a black and blue jig and a Live Target bluegill squarebill crankbait.
David Walker's plan to jump up from 6 pounds off the lead is to "work harder than everybody else."
Matt Reed strapped 11 rods to the deck of his boat this morning. He's fished the first two days in the same pond with Bill Lowen. Chris Lane joined them yesterday and caught a big bag there.
