Vinson has third fish

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.


It'll probably go about 3 pounds, which means Vinson is sitting at about 6 pounds now.


Our boat had scarcely stopped bobbing from Bobby Lane's wake when Vinson stuck it.


When Vinson pulled out off the bank for his cameraman to deliver a tape to a waiting runner, he said there were two big fish on beds.


"But they're not ready," he said. " They may be by the time we leave."
