It's slow going right now for Edwin Evers in the Bouldin Dam Canal, and that's not completely unexpected, according to our boat driver Matt Chambliss. Chambliss lives in Pike Road, not far from here, and fishes this canal frequently. He said the key to the canal is catching that early flurry of fish just like Evers did first thing this morning. "There's a chance of getting another flurry, but you have to be in the right place and at the right time." It could happen for Evers, and clearly he's waiting it out here and hoping for that next flurry to happen.
"I need a big 'un," Evers said loudly to no one in particular.
It's like he's reading our minds.
