Jones boats second as he slowly scours area

Alton Jones just caught his second bass of the day, but I'm certain he expects to cull it later. He had to put it on a measuring board to make sure it was 12 inches before adding it to the livewell. We're guessing it weighed a pound.

 

But we're doing a lot of guessing right now as Jones has moved toward the back of this shallow spawning flat, and he wants us to keep our distance in this area where fish could easily spook.

 

Jones is moving forward about 10 feet with his trolling motor, then putting down both Power Poles until he thoroughly covers the area before moving another 10 feet again.

 

To say he is fishing slow would be an understatement.
