2012 Elite Series St. Johns River Showdown St. Johns River - Palatka, FL, Mar 15 - 18, 2012

Hot spot: East Lake George

Just pulled up to the east side of Lake George. In a 300 yard stretch I can see Alton Jones, Todd Faitcloth, J. Todd Tucker, and Randy Howell. That's first, fourth, seventh, and eighth place right now in the tournament.

 

We had a quick chat with Randy Howell. He's hoping this east wind picks up a little earlier today than it did yesterday. He said the "wind is key for these fish. Anything I catch before the wind is a bonus."

 

As Randy was telling us that, J. Todd hooks up on a "bonus" fish. It looks to go four pounds. That gives him three fish for an estimated eight pounds. That  should push him into the top five.
