We follow Todd Faircloth and Cliff Pace into Half Moon Creek. Pace sets down first. We pass him and stay with Faircloth.
Faircloth pulls into a short, quiet pocket and starts out casting what appears to be a soft jerkbait. He's fishing over the bank grass that was flooded when the lake level came up. He's twitching the bait gently.
It's colder this morning, the mid 40s, but so far it's calm and dry. It's much nicer weather-wise for now.
Faircloth suddenly swings and misses. He misses again on his next cast. He doesn't look to be flustered. He is known for having a cool head.
