Action slows down for Christie

The breaking action has slowed way down for Jason Christie. A few minutes ago he was able to get his spook in front of a breaker and quickly reeled in a 2 1/2 pounder.

He never gave it another look. He just quickly unhooked it and tossed it back.

He told me earlier that he needs a 4-pounder to cull. His Marshal, who is now in the camera boat, says his largest fish was put down as a 5-pounder. But he thinks it's bigger than that.

Christi is making short hops and jumps around the pocket, hitting new places and hopefully causing enough ruckus to get the shad skittish enough to fire up the bass.
