This new stretch of water is paying big dividends for Greg Vinson -- maybe $500,000 worth if this keeps up.
Greg Vinson is making things interesting. After needing nearly four hours to catch his limit, he has put three in the boat in the past half hour. The last one enabled him to cull the other small keeper in his well. Vinson continues to work the blade along the hyacinths on the bank.
Greg Vinson has a limit, and just as I was about to type that it didn't help a lot, he caught No. 6, which did help.
The day's playing out exactly as Greg Vinson predicted. The later it gets, the better the fishing. Vinson yanked out his biggest fish yet, a bass he estimated at 4 1/2 pounds. He caught it off a bed with a Cajun Craw that's brown and orange. After dealing with camera boats and tape exchanges, he's back in the game and looking at another one.
You read it here first -- warming water temperature and a slight chop from the wind, and Vinson now has caught his third fish, and it's a lot closer to the size he needs to win this thing.
Greg Vinson just pulled a buck bass off a bed for today's second fish.
Greg Vinson is covering some new water this morning. Same spot as the previous two days, but he worked farther down the north bank than I've seen him fish before today.
Greg Vinson put his first fish in the boat at 9:04 a.m. It's not much to look at, but it's a keeper.
