I climbed inside Tharp's Ranger and chatted with him. Although he's not catching a lot of fish, he's confident in this area. "Yesterday, I caught probably 30 over 3 pounds. By 8:30 in the morning I had caught 23 fish. It was great. Something's different today, though. I don't know if those fish were just leaving or what, but yesterday they were all postspawn." The bite was similar to this in practice, meaning that he got a bite every 45 minutes or so, but they were all good.
At the moment he doesn't have any plans to move, despite the slow bite.
