In the thick of things

Shaye Baker has moved to some thick vegetation near the Indian Creek area of Lake Okeechobee, and he's got plenty of company. One-tenth of the 49-angler field is right here, including Jesse Tacoronte, who was sixth on Day One with 20-6.


But we're not seeing many fish catches right now. However, it's early. The bite turned on for a bunch of guys around noon yesterday. Baker caught his 9-1 at one o'clock yesterday.


And as soon as I wrote that Baker just caught another fish that allowed him to cull up a pound, and Tacoronte just missed "a giant."
