I just had a brief conversation with Alton Jones right after he put his first keeper in the boat. Jones has also caught several short fish recently.
"These fish have changed today," Jones said. "They aren't in the thick stuff like they were yesterday. They're spawning. You can't see them, but that's what is going on.
"I'm fishing more out, and I've changed baits from that Woolly Bugger to a Yum Dinger. They're eating it. I'm going to catch a big one in a minute."
