Team Maine and Spain

10:49 am EDT, Sep 16, 2015

Joe Holland of Maine and Juan Carlos Moreno of Spain have exactly zero fish in the boat.


"We just let a 5-pounder go," said Holland. It was a net issue, he says.


"But we're having fun!" he added. "Just having a good time out here."

No keepers

10:38 am EDT, Sep 16, 2015

Dino Moutgiannis of Connecticut has three in the boat, but his partner, Brian Chadwick of Maine, is fishless.


"I've caught a couple small ones, but no keepers," said Chadwick.


"You missed a debacle earlier," he said. "We got our hooks tangled all up in the net. Had to perform surgery. Would have made a great bloopers video."


The duo just got to this spot after spending most of the morning downriver.
