Here's a look at Kevin Short from Day 3 on the water. Photos by Bassmaster Marshal Chief Harper.

Kevin Short is grinding

12:47 pm EDT, Mar 15, 2014

Kevin Short is grinding. He had another come off. He took time to grab additional rods from his locker.  


He is changing up his baits often. At this time he just makes short moves leaving his trolling motor deployed. He is grinding. Warning and getting slick on the surface.

Hite still optimistic

12:45 pm EDT, Mar 15, 2014

There have been plenty of late-day rallies in this tournament so far, and  that's what Brett Hite is hoping for today.


"I just need one of those flurries like I've had the last two days," Hite said. "With these high skies and no wind, the fish just aren't eating the bait. I've had quite a few bites. Maybe this front that's headed this way will change things."


Just as he was saying that, Hite broke off a fish.

Prince pulls in number 3!

Grigsby culls, adds 3 ounces

12:27 pm EDT, Mar 15, 2014

Shaw Grisby is finally sight fishing, in a little lilly pad, after a morning using other methods. Shaw just hooked up with his 7th fish of the day, and culled to add three ounces to his total. "Every ounce counts," said his roommate Paul Elias with a wry smile.  Paul is out here handing with the Bassmaster.com team hoping his buddy can win this derby.

Update on Omori

12:18 pm EDT, Mar 15, 2014

Found Takahiro Omori not far from Martens. Omori is looking for sight fish. He told me his biggest one is about 8 pounds. He has 5 fish for 23 pounds.

Grigsby atop BassTrakk leaderboard, barely

12:11 pm EDT, Mar 15, 2014

Shaw Grigsby is unofficially atop the BassTrakk leaderboard. We've got a technical issue with Shaw's BassTrakk unit, so he's showing no fish in BassTrakk. But he actually has 5 fish for 16 pounds. That puts him in first place just ahead of Takahiro Omori. Stay tuned, lots of movement at the top!
