Aaron Martens pulled up his trolling motor at 9:30 a.m. in Bayview Cove and announced he was making a move.
"Long run?" some asked.
Martens just smiled and said, "Long run. You're kidding, right?"
Unless you're going where Edwin Evers is today, there are no long runs on Lake Decatur, which is 13 miles long.
Martens went right back to the Nelson Park Marina takeoff site and immediately caught a fish off a riprap jetty. It was close enough to measure, but went back in the lake.
By the way, it's 46 degrees in Decatur now, after getting down to 37 degrees last night. But the temperature is supposed to climb into the mid 60s today and there isn't a cloud in the sky.
