Cliff Prince is currently working an area in sight of Falcon Dam and has a 4- and 2-pouner in the boat. He’s working a Bomber Fat Free Shad and a spinnerbait around a set of trees surrounded by grass. We saw Clark Reehm fishing this same spot yesterday. It’s shallow hump surrounded by deeper water.

Combs lost a big one a few moments ago. Zona says that this is the best of Combs big fish spots and the key is 16 to 20 feet with rocks. Says he will live or die with the 6XD crankbait. We see JVD picking up and leaving.

Cliff Crochet drops a 4-pounder in the livewell

I'm with Cliff Crochet at the moment. He busted a big 30-pound plus bag yesterday and for the second event in a row is making his presence felt on the Elite Series.

We weren't on him more than 5 minutes when he set the hook and dropped a 4-pounder in the well.

He's on his way again. He just told us that the bank he's on he caught a 7- and 10-pounder in practice.

He's about as far away from the leaders, boat-ride wise as you can get.
