Right after Lowen left, Chris Lane idled over to the bank he'd been on when we entered. It was a fast idle with the trolling motor down. He's "fishing slow, quickly." As soon as he arrived on the bank, he dropped the Power-Poles and commenced pitching.
After a few minutes he pulled up stakes, paralleled the bank for 30 yards and dropped them again.
Our boat driver called to report that the problem was that a stump pulled out the drain plug. He's put it back in and is headed back to get us.
