From what I can see so far, things are tough. It is early, time will tell. Klein and Crochet are doing their thing, but with little result.
Dean Rojas is fishing underneath I-10, one of America's most trafficked interstates, running from California through Florida. But if there are fish here I'm sure Rojas doesn't mind the traffic noise.
In fact, he just caught a non-keeper. We're standing under the interstate watching him fish. This feels a little like the 2013 version of Tom Sawyer.
Kevin VanDam still doesn't have a keeper, but it's a beautiful area where he's doing his usual rapid-fire casting. The background is thick with cypress trees and Spanish moss hanging from them.
KVD is approaching a point where he caught 'em yesterday, according to James Overstreet.

Cliff Crochet seems to have slowed his pace just a bit as he slowly makes his way down this 25-yard-wide canal. No keepers yet, just one short fish. From Zona in the boat: He says he's had his limit by 12:30 each day and stopped.
Now another fish -- looks to be short by an inch. Quite a few cameras on him just now. If there's a keeper soon you should get a good look at it.
