In further testament to the efficiency of the Elite Series service crews, Brian Beebe, James Overstreet, a loaf of PB&J sandwiches and I are back on the water. And we didn't have to go far to find Aaron Martens. You could observe him from the Clinton Street bridge.
In the brief time Overstreet was away, Martens got his line stretched a couple of times by some big drum, according to other observers, but he hasn't added another bass to the 12- or 13-pound limit he's got.
Everyone at the weigh-in area is keeping an eye on this nearby storm. The consensus is that it will hit here about noon or 1 p.m. I'm sticking with the weatherman's cliche: 50 percent chance of rain, or hail, or damaging winds.
