Jones finds six fish on a bed

12:42 pm EDT, Mar 17, 2012 | By Steve Wright

Alton Jones has trolled within a few feet of us. He confirmed that that last fish should give him about 16 pounds.

 

"From now on, if you see me stop, it's a good one," Jones said.

 

No sooner than the words were out of his mouth, he set down the Power Poles.

 

"There's six fish on this bed," Jones said, "but only one is a good one, about three-and-a-half pounds."

 

Jones added that he's looking at bass swimming everywhere in front of him.

 

Todd Faircloth and Andy Montgomery have joined Alton Jones in the big eel grass flat in the south end of Lake George. 

 

Montgomery just landed a keeper.

 

Jones and Faircloth got close enough for a brief conversation about how their day was going before going back into full search mode.
