I promise there's no attempt to create any false drama here, but we may have overestimated Aaron Martens' weight today. He just caught a fish that was smaller than anything we thought he had in his livewell.
 
Then he took it back and put it on the balance beam with one of his other fish. Instead of cookie-cutter 2 3/4-pounders, like we thought he had before upgrading with that 4-pounde earlier, he may have had a 2-pounder in there.
 
Martens is fishing until the last minute. He just moved out to mid-river again and caught another small one, tossing it back instantly.
 
Now he's hooked another one. I'm giving you minute-by-minute updates here, and this one may help him. It's on the balance beam.Nope, didn't help.
