Paul Elias found with one in the livewell

8:37 am CDT, Jun 22, 2013 | By Dave Precht

The rain has abated, and we've started hopscotching upriver, looking for pros catching fish. Our first find was Paul Elias, fishing a construction zone under the I-90 bridge. Elias said he has one in the well.  We just watched him catch a short fish and toss it back. He's drifting with the current and cranking a small swimbait around rootwads and branches. A decent-size northern pike grabbed the lure, and Elias landed and released it, too. He needs a good limit of the right species to move up from  31st.
