Brent Chapman caught his first fish of the day at 7:20, but it's not one he hopes to keep in his livewell at the end of the day. The bass, which looked to be in the 1 1/2-pound range, bit a big plastic worm thrown on a Carolina rig.
Chapman has caught most of his fish this week on a big flutter spoon. He's thrown it some this morning with no success so far.
Mark Zona is in the boat with Chapman and reports that Chapman isn't seeing a bunch of bass on his sonar. That's probably why Chapman just started his outboard motor and idled 100 yards or so to the west side of this area which is filled with standing timber.
