2013 Elite Series Rigid Industries Falcon Slam
Falcon Lake - Zapata, TX, Mar 21 - 25, 2013

Waiting for the sun

9:16 am CDT, Mar 21, 2013 | By Steve Wright

Hank Cherry has a 5-pounder in the boat already, but he's, in his words, "Killing time until the sun comes out and I go to the trees."


Cherry had five bites on the first day of practice, two of which he landed — a 10 1/2-pounder and a 7.


"Those three others ran off into the trees," Cherry said. "I don't know what they were — bass, catfish, alligator gar — but it was something."


It's currently  overcast and cool on Falcon, but it's supposed to clear and warm up as the day progresses.
