Tharp calm, still catching fish as RC helicopter crashes nearby

8:41 am CST, Feb 22, 2014 | By Pete Robbins

Another legal fish for Tharp, but he threw it back without going to the livewell. He swung it into the boat but otherwise played it gingerly, with little body English.

 

He's calm, but the guy running the remote-controlled helicopter camera is not. His machine crashed into the lake and quickly dropped out of sight in 7 feet of water. The big motor cowling altered his flight plan for the worse. Expensive mistake.
