It's only 9 a.m. and Britt Myers has stopped on his eighth spot of the day. He's looking at his electronics before making a cast or two, and if he catches nothing, he's gone.
Myers' pattern all week has been running and gunning.
Britt Myers' moved to his third spot of the morning and quickly caught his third fish of the day. This one was a bit bigger than the previous two - probably 2 1/2 pounds.
Jeremy Starks has the first limit of the day. It weighs in at 11-pounds and change. Good enough to take the lead for the moment from Britt Myers.
It took awhile, but photographer James Overstreet and I have found leader Bitt Myers in the thick fog of Mud Creek, where Myers started Saturday. He reportedly has one 2 1/4-pound bass in the boat.
