Brandon Card caught a 4-pounder early on the first day of unofficial practice. It was his first fish of the day. This is the first fish we've seen come out of Grand Lake O' the Cherokees during the three-day unofficial practice.
The first swimbait was the K&K Animated Minnow, designed by John D. Kreisser of Cincinnati, Ohio. He applied for a patent on the lure in 1906.
