Herren upgrades twice

12:41 pm EDT, Jun 15, 2014 | By Jim Sexton

Matt Herren is fishing docks in a little slip and caught two keepers--a 4 1/2-pounder and a 3-pounder. We're estimating he has 16 to 17 pounds now. The 4 1/2-pounder was a little too exciting for Matt. As he worked the fish to the back of the boat his line got hung up on Erik Kaffka's television camera. Erik, shooting for ESPN2, was at the very back of the boat and Matt couldn't figure out what was happening and struggled to grab the fish out of the water. They finally got things straighten out and he got the fish in the boat.
