Ott’s misfortune continues. As he was flipping a creature bait down the bank, he got hung up, freed it, then on the ensuing cast laid into a nice keeper, but his line broke. Visibly shaken and dejected, DeFoe retied and kept fishing. This is hard to watch because if he’d fished flawlessly, he could be looking at 9 pounds or so, given the five he lost this morning and the keeper that just got away. However, seeing that there are fish in the 5-pound class, this matchup between DeFoe and Martens may be a one bite away.
