At 10:45 a.m., Randy Howell made the decision to leave the west bank of Lake George and go across the lake to the east bank. He is near where Paul Elias and Mark Davis are fishing.
Howell caught his fourth keeper moments after he got on the trolling motor. It was another small male. On his next cast he caught the female, about a 4 1/2 pounder.
This is one of those decisions that tournament anglers often talk about, and it appears to be a good one.
