After leaving Aaron Martens, who hadn't boated a keeper at Noon, Shaye Baker and I struggled to find another Elite Series angler. This is a vast river system.
Bradley Roy zoomed by us going the opposite direction, but signaled on his way past us that he had two keepers.
Then we found Fletcher Shryock for a short visit. Shryock said he had three keepers, and had caught a total of about 20 bass today.
"A couple were 13 1/2 inches and one was 13 7/8ths," he said. "That just breaks your heart when you don't have a limit in the boat yet."
