James Niggemeyer of Van, Texas, had a great day yesterday, but fishing isn't on the same pace today.
Todd Faircloth has vacated the grassbed where he caught the 3-pounder a while ago and headed back to the section of the lake where he began his day. We've decided not to follow him just yet.
Finding fish in the offshore weedbeds of Oneida is like searching for a moving needle in underwater haystacks.
Todd Faircloth, still the main threat to Brent Chapman for 2012 Angler of the Year, moved about 1/2 mile closer to shore and is fishing again, still alternating between a jerkbait and a finesse presentation.
A day like today makes you glad to be an on-the-water blogger. Sunrise over Oneida Shores Park, which silhouetted the 97 Elite Series anglers against and orange sky, was gorgeous.
Todd Faircloth always has a serious demeanor, but surely he's smiling right now.
A trip south of the border reveals good fishing, excellent food and more than one cerveza.
