At 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Jeff Kriet hadn't seen much to get excited about. In fact, he thought the bass fishing was better here Sunday than it had been so far today.
"I did hit one little stretch where I thought I'd catch 'em," Kriet said. "I got two bites where I thought I'd get 10."
Kriet, however, was far from discouraged, saying, "I think we're going to catch 'em (in the Classic)."
That's the feeling you get from a lot of these anglers: With a few more degrees in the water temperature and a few more hours to figure out what the fish are going, then the Red River will break loose. But it's holding tight right now.
