Reese upgrades again

Skeet Reese has attracted a big crowd in the creek behind Highlands Marina off the main lake, and he's putting on a show.

 

All of a sudden, Reese has got a cameraman and photographer James Overstreet in his boat, and he's not slowing down. Reese just caught another fish off a spawning bed, which looked to weigh about three pounds.

 

When asked how much weight he's got now, Reese said, "I don't know. More than I had!"

 

And he dropped a 2 3/4-pounder back in the lake.

 

There were at least 15 boats back here when Overstreet and I arrived. The spectators erupted with cheers when Reese hoisted that fish in the air.
