James Overstreet, Dean Meckes and I just pulled up near Jonathon VanDam, just past the Brockville Narrows, about 35 or 40 river miles west of the launch site.

We saw him boat what we think was his second keeper of the day, and it was just that, a keeper, 2 pounds maybe. We're told he caught a 3-pounder earlier.

JVD got his line stretched a few minutes ago by a drum that weighed at least 12 pounds.

He's been drop-shifting two Strike King soft plastics this week - a green pumpkin sapphire Dream Shot and dark melon Coffee Tube with purple and gold flake.
