Matt Herren is fishing offshore for the first time today. He told me he's been doing well in some of these offshore places. And he's mentioned a couple of times today he feels like it will get good after noon.
There's still some time between now and then, so he's getting an early start. Right now we are on a long point running out from a pocket and drops off into a feeder creek. Not far away is the main river.
Mark Grimsley, our boat driver, tells us there is a lot of brush on the drop. He also says this is a big fish spot.
Herren is working hard to fire up the school. He may get some help from the TVA. Grimsley said they are scheduled to start running water at about 33,000 cfs sometime today.
That will help everyone.
