It seems we've been here before. At last year's All-Star event on the Alabama River, Gerald Swindle established what he called "the poop-pipe pattern" - fishing near a wastewater treatment outlet pipe and catching several bass from it.
Swindle has now worked his way to the other side of Reas Bridge, opposite Isaac Walton Park. And what sits on the bank above him? A wastewater treatment facility, of course.
However, the pattern hasn't produced for him so far, and the wind is starting to pick up. This is one time we are thankful for wind; it's a breath of fresh air, so to speak.
