Hite makes a move

10:45 am EDT, Mar 15, 2014

Brett Hite hasn't caught a fish since we've been following him this morning and has only two small ones in the livewell. He has been working his way down one bank. Then, when Hite looked up and saw Timmy Horton on the same bank, Hite made a short move.


Hite said he had his fish and went looking for new water at 11 a.m. yesterday. That won't be the case today, apparently.

"It'll kill me if he catches em here"

Shaw Grigsby has changed locations. Motoring about 10 minutes away on the main body of Lake Seminole from where he started the day.


I hopped in the boat with Paul Elias, who has roomed with Shaw for three years. Paul didn't make the cut, "but I'm out here because I want to see Shaw win."


We jetted over here in Paul's Triton/Honda rig, reaching a top speed of 68 miles an hour. Paul made it look easy, navigating through the channels and stumps.


"It'll make me sick if he catches em in here today," said Paul. "I tried this area in practice but didn't figure out the pattern. Once Shaw caught some here on day 1 I backed off to give this area to Shaw. I need to get better with my technology."

Schultz has more company!

Nate Wellman has moved into the same water that Schultz is working.  Local Anglers are also giving this section of Spring Creek a go. Anglers seem to be in the move as well.

Schultz lands number 2

10:04 am EDT, Mar 15, 2014

Schultz lands number two. 3.5lbs fish. I just saw a small plane fly over and put on a show this morning for us. I will have a few shots in my On the Water gallery later today.  Schultz is now sharing the water with Morizo Shimizu.

Shaw Grigsby is still fishing the same little area but has moved to the other side of the little hole he's been in all morning. Paul Elias described it as giving the same fish a different presentation.
