Tharp feeling OK about his spot

We just settled down on Randall Tharp. He's working a shallow area, making casts into submerged grass. With so many anglers yesterday keying in on shad, I assume that is why he is busy as well. But, I asked him if that was the case, and he said the only thing in the spot is gar and carp. He told us he's not real thrilled with this spot so far. But, as the unofficial leader, it seems to be paying off somewhat.
