KVD switches up baits

Cherry lands No. 4

10:20 am EDT, Sep 29, 2013

Hank Cherry continues to methodically work a white swimbait, and it paid off with keeper No. 4 — another smallmouth in the 2-pound range. That should put him at about 8 pounds for the day.

Evers has two

10:14 am EDT, Sep 29, 2013

Evers made a short move and has quickly put two in the boat. Both on a topwater, neither of any real size.

He has about 3 1/2 plus. But at least he's off the snide.

KVD has a limit

10:05 am EDT, Sep 29, 2013

KVD just added his limit fish to the boat; he is surely winning the war of spots at this point in the day. In classic KVD style he has done a lot more running than any of the other anglers in the final four. In less than than hours he has hit six spots.

Cherry misses a big fish

9:53 am EDT, Sep 29, 2013

Cherry adds No. 3

9:44 am EDT, Sep 29, 2013

Hank Cherry fished down White Lake to its end, into the canal that connects it with Lake Michigan, as you can see in the photo above. But he didn't stay there long. He motored back up to the mid-lake area and immediately caught bass No. 3 - a less-than-2-pound smallmouth. He's probably got around 6 pounds.

He didn't get the big one he saw right before that.

"There was a 4-pounder following it,"

"It" in this case, is a swimbait, which Cherry has been throwing most of the morning. He's been working in a swim jig as well. Both baits are white.
