Swindle keeps on fishin'

3:10 pm CDT, Sep 22, 2012 | By Steve Wright

At 2:45 p.m., Gerald Swindle was back where he started fishing at 8:10 a.m., the Reas Bridge at the north end of Basin No. 5. Unfortunately for Swindle, the results were the same -- zero.

So he's started moving south again, working some boat docks in Basin No. 4, getting closer to the check-in site with the clock ticking down.

Unlike in other tournaments, Swindle is allowed to check his iPhone and see what he needs to beat his No. 1-seeded opponent today, Edwin Evers. But he has chosen not to do so. He's just going to keep on fishing. He's still got that single 1 1/2-pounder that came about 11 a.m.
