It seems that the Red River has claimed another victim. A camera boat operator was screaming out of the Bee Hive – the area Chris Lane is fishing – and busted up the lower unit on a stump. The owner of the Legend in question? Elite Series pro Jason Quinn (his boat is here on behalf of Quinn's main sponsor, Evan Williams Bourbon).
After limping to the service yard, the Mercury service crew had another one bolted up in no time. All the service crews are amazingly efficient and good at what they do. Any angler will tell you the same thing. Plus, they know their way around a Big Green Egg.
Back to McDade: Dustin Wilks is cruising the area he’s been milking all week with the same small crankbait. But if that quits working, he’s not afraid to get weird and toss a buzzbait. There’s a slight chop on the water, which Wilks says is good for his fishing. His little crankbait just landed him another keeper.
DeFoe is now retracing his steps and heading back up the bank he came down.
