They may be turning on

10:24 am CDT, Jun 20, 2013

 Kevin Hawk just pulled in a huge 4-pounder. He says we're going to stay for awhile.

Evers is close to a limit

10:13 am CDT, Jun 20, 2013

Edwin's up to 4 keepers now. No giants but all solid 2-2.5 lbers.

 

Looking for a kicker to fill the limit.

No. 5 for Rowland

Palaniuk adds another

10:06 am CDT, Jun 20, 2013

Palaniuk followed with another big smallmouth bass, probably another 4-pounder.

 

From what we've seen so far, that might make him the leader, or darn near close to it.

 

Andy Montgomery just motored through this area, right outside the launch's no-wake zone. Paul Elias is set up on the other side of the river. We're gonna ease up and see what he has.

Palaniuk boats a kicker

9:57 am CDT, Jun 20, 2013

The nice guys on one of the spectator boats just told us that Palaniuk boated a 4-pounder right before we arrived.

 

Palaniuk concurred.

 

"You just missed it," he called from the shoreline.

 

Bad timing, but the young pro has a limit with a nice toad to anchor it.
