Day One: Quotable

Alton Jones
Alton Jones was happy just to bag five keepers on the first day of the Sabine River Challenge.

ORANGE, Texas -- Overheard at the Day One weigh-in:

“I’m not sure I can catch another keeper fish tomorrow.”

– Todd Faircloth

“You laugh at the size of those fish, but you wouldn’t if you knew how proud I was to have five.”

– Alton Jones

“I was spun-out first thing in the morning ... didn’t know where I was or what I was doing.”

– Shaw Grigsby

“Three days of practice and I only caught one keeper.”

– Britt Myers

“If anybody wants to write a story on how to catch one fish and spend about nine thousand dollars, then I’m the man to talk to.”

– Gerald Swindle

“I don’t think you’re supposed to see dolphins when you are bass fishing.”

– Ott DeFoe
