Cherry fishing intensely

2:00 pm CST, Feb 24, 2013 | By David Hunter Jones

The word to describe Hank Cherry right now is "intense." Every move he makes is fast with no wasted time. You could tell that as he did the phone interviews he was anxious. He flipped the reel handle with his thumb as he tapped his for and looked around. He just caught a small bass and fought another drum. There are fish on his spots and he knows it, and he wants to fish them all. Everything's setting up just right for these spots to be loaded: wind, sun and no other pressure, save the one spot the locals hit after he left. But, will this heroic effort be trumped by Pace's whopper lead? It's too early to tell, but we'll know soon.
