Scroggins maneuvers under low bridge

11:20 am CDT, Mar 16, 2013

James Overstreet and I have spent the last hour, since KVD moved, searching for Terry Scroggins. We finally found him, laying on his boat deck with his Power Poles at half-mast, easing under a low wooden bridge. He's got one fish and had seven other bites.

This photo shows the entrance to the latest place where Scroggins has ventured. We're trying to follow.

Cliff Crochet has been working about a 2-mile stretch since 7:30 a.m. He just idled back into the same area hit about 15 minutes ago. Klein is not far and seemingly having the same issues -- high skies and slack bite.

Aaron Martens and Brandon Palaniuk, who didn't make the cut to fish today, are spending time with teens at the High School Elite Experience. Topics for the speakers include what it takes to be a pro, as well as specific fishing techniques.

Changing tide makes a rough day for fishing

10:39 am CDT, Mar 16, 2013

Warming up out here. About 70 degrees. Cliff Crochet is still working it hard. The bite just isn't on right now. The locals I've talked with say this is a tough day for all. I hear the tide might be moving a bit so that could mean some action is coming. Stay tuned!
