Still no fish yet for Brent Chapman. He's going down the bank in a leisurely fashion, alternating casts between a Top Shelf swimbait and a crawdad-colored Wiggle Wart. A quick move across the cove and he's doing more of the same as the sun gets higher and the breeze starts to pick up slightly.
Looks like he won't be fighting windy conditions that are predicted for later as he heads back in at the end of the day. He's within sight of the launch. Might be a different story for the likes of a Brandon Palaniuk who is making a 30-mile plus run or Matt Herren, who is going closer to 50 miles
