We have moved down to the lower end of Pool 8, where many of the current leaders are holed up. Greg Vinson is working some riprap lined with emergent grass. Just as we pulled up, he caught a 2-pounder that might cull one of the smaller bass in his limit. He's throwing a frog, mostly.
No one else is in sight, but BassTrakk shows a gang of anglers just around the bend. As we started our run downstream, we chatted with Chris Zaldain, who was working the same point where Palaniuk got into trouble yesterday.
Switching between tube baits and crankbaits, he had a pair of 3-pounders from the point already. I doubt he'll be culling anything from that particular spot in Minnesota today.
