This morning's action has been punctuated by bad weather, but Aaron Martens just put a change to that.
He hooked into a really big bass a minute ago and it took him a full minute to bring the fish in. He worked both sides of the boat, from front to back, to haul it in.
"About 4-6," Martens said after he boated the bass. "That one really fought."
Indeed it did. We weren't even sure it was going to be bass until he pulled it from the dark water here on the Mississippi.
We're being told that he has four fish that go about 11 pounds right now. That big bass he just boated in anchoring the bag, for sure.
Those are the fish that are going to keep him atop the leaderboard.
