Dealing with a crowd can be challenging on shallow-water fisheries. Both Faircloth and Evers had boats watching them all morning. They had staked up in the middle of the pad stems and Evers actually caught a fish about 10 yards from them. It's important that the anglers instruct and direct the spectators on where to go to stay out of the way.
We have found Faircloth and Evers with a group of about eight spectator boats wedged between them.
Bobby Lane worked his way out of the pocket on high and stopped suddenly, dropping his Power-Poles.
There are pad stems all over the cut Bobby Lane is fishing, but he stays keyed in on a particular series of them.
We are sitting in about 4 feet of water out at the entrance to this small rectangular-shaped cut.
I made an executive decision for now. Because I don't know exactly where Evers is starting, I'm heading into the New Jungle and watching Bobby Lane for a bit. Without Trey Reid's guidance, that wouldn't have been possible. There's a reason this place is known as the jungle.
Over 100 spectators are currently watching Kevin Wirth and Stephen Browning fishing the mouth of a small backwater near the take-off.
When I look at the top of the leaderboard, the most exciting part of today's action is that a bunch of Classic would-be first-time winners pack the Super 6.
A case can be made that sight fishing will win this event.
