Martens culling by ounces

12:17 pm CDT, Jun 24, 2012 | By Steve Wright

Other than in a few brief lulls, Aaron Martens has  continued to catch fish all morning long. Lately he's been able to cull up a few ounces two times. He's probably got 11 pounds now.
 

But as has been the lament of almost every angler in this tournament, Martens hasn't found a big bite today. He's caught 'em shallow - on a topwater frog - and he's caught 'em deep – on a drop shot and a flutter spoon. But he just hasn't caught 'em big.
 

Martens has plenty of time remaining to do that. Remember, he missed a 4-pounder at the boat in the final minutes yesterday.
 

But he's going to have to do it without us hanging around. James Overstreet has photos to process, so we are out of here.
