Martens fishing quickly

It took Aaron Martens only five minutes after take-off from Nelson Park Marina to get a lure in the water. He's throwing a crankbait along the riprap and under the bridge at Bayview Cove.

After looking closely at the water level under the bridge, Martens has decided to go under it, which he has done successfully. I don't believe this water was accessible yesterday, or it  may have been simply too choppy in here for anyone to try it. When we followed Gerald Swindle into this cove Saturday, he didn't stay long with the 20-mph northwest wind washing white caps into the riprap.
