Swindle hooks ... a catfish

12:32 pm CDT, Sep 22, 2012 | By Steve Wright

It appeared Gerald Swindle had hooked the big bass of the day, after he cast a crankbait along the riprap bank below the Highway 36 bridge. He took a long time landing it, with his rod bent double the whole time. But once Swindle boated what turned out to be a flathead catfish, it was obvious he was just making certain he didn't lose his crankbait.

 

Swindle has started moving often in the last hour. He immediately left the Highway 36 bridge, after tossing back the catfish, and has moved farther south, near the Nelson Park takeoff area.
