Biffle needs a big catch

1:21 pm CDT, Jun 23, 2013 | By Andrew Canulette

The dark water of the Mississippi River has turned to the color of chocolate milk here near Goose Pond. The wind is significant which is causing the disruption. Tommy Biffle continues to work a grass point just off the main river, but he just cannot seem to land the kicker fish he needs to overtake Aaron Martens. At least not yet. He just caught another undersized fish, which by a conservative estimate, is about the 15th dink he's had to throw back today.

With time running out on the final day of the Mississippi River Rumble, Biffle will need to catch a big one soon.

Nothing is official just yet, of course, but we have Biffle with about 12 pounds today. We're hearing that Aaron Martens, who led the tournament by seven ounces, has about 15 pounds today.
