We just caught up with Shaye Baker, who has a 3-pounder in the boat. He caught it from a hyacinth mat near Horse Island, where several of the leaders have fished this week and will probably all end up there later today.
But Baker has moved to the Harney Pond area, his other main spot during the last two days. The 9-1 he caught on Day 1 came from here. Baker is pitching a jig to isolated patches of pencil reeds in this area. He's using a 3/4th-ounce Medlock jig with a Strike King Rage Craw trailer — both in black-and-blue.
He just landed bass No. 2 today. It weighs about 2 pounds.
