Working the same area

Matt Reed strapped 11 rods to the deck of his boat this morning. He's fished the first two days in the same pond with Bill Lowen. Chris Lane joined them yesterday and caught a big bag there.

 

So far the three anglers have gotten along well.

 

"Nobody has screamed at anybody yet," Reed said with a smile. He admitted to being a little bit frustrated by his own inability to catch a big bag yesterday, but admitted that he lost a 6-pound class fish that would have put him in much better position to win.

 

Today he may lock up early. He has a spot in Pool 5 where he caught three fish in the last 30 minutes yesterday.
