Velvick on the board

Byron Velvick has already met his goal for the day: He has one bass in the livewell.


"A pound-and-a-half, baby," Velvick said. "I'm taking this to the weigh-in."


That catch finally put Brandon Palaniuk  on-the-move.


"You've already caught the only fish that lives within a mile-and-a-half of here," Palaniuk said to Velvick, as he cranked the big motor to leave.


There will be a lot of "gallows humor" on the Delaware River today, after three days of skimpy practice.
