The view from the bridge

11:49 am CDT, Mar 17, 2013 | By Steve Wright


The Bayou D'Inde bridge near Sulphur, La., has become a popular viewpoint for bass fishing fans. Dean Rojas can be seen in the distance.

However, not everyone knows there's a bass tournament going on today. One man drove over the bridge, then pulled over in a nearby parking lot.

"What's going on around here?" he asked me.

After I explained, he said, "I'm just glad they're not looking for a body or something."

Then he got back in his vehicle and drove away. He might have stuck around if he'd heard the roar from the crowd moments later when Rojas landed a 5-pounder.
