Now I've found Jordan Lee. He is fishing same deal as last few days, boat docks. He said he culled once now. He estimated his weight around 8.5-9 pounds.

First thing this morning Shane Powell popped a 4-pounder. He's now looking for his second fish, fishing the pads in the river with frogs.

Powell not nervous, just another day of fishing

9:56 am EDT, Sep 29, 2013

I'm on his boat now. He said he was kind of surprised that he is not nervous, just another day of fishing. Now he is moving to look for his second fish of the day.

Powell has one

8:16 am EDT, Sep 29, 2013

After the takeoff, I was working on my launch photo gallery before hitting the water. I found Shane Powell right outside of takeoff and he already had a fish. The TV cameraman said he has one fish, about 4 pounds. As I got ready to shoot a photo, he decide to go to his primary spot. Now I am following him, going to up river. Good start for him.

Powell starts the morning off with a 4-pounder

I'm Shane Powell's cameraman for the day, and he's off to a good start. We're making a run now after starting near the ramp where he had only one bite. But this bite is the kind he needs. She'll push 4-pounds and needless to say Shane was a little excited when he put her in the boat. A bite like that goes a long way on a fishery like this. Especially in these post front conditions.
