Like candy at a parade

Ben Potaracke is the camera boat operator following Terry Butcher today. He sent in this report:

 

"Terry Butcher is fishing slop and mats with a frog and has a limit for about 11 pounds. He just moved over to the other side of the slough and is fishing open water with a spinnerbait. He has caught four more with the spinnerbait but none of them helped his bag."

 

He followed that with:

 

"Butcher just caught a 2 1/2 on the spinnerbait and is starting to cull. Power-Poles down in a little pocket with standing grass. He's catching a fish every four or five casts but tossing them back like candy at a parade."
