On the water photos from Day Three of the 2012 Bassmaster Classic on the Red River.
For the first time today, Alton Jones is headed out of this little pond located in a cut just across from the Red River South Marina launch site.
Tim Horton has moved back to his original spot in White House.
It's 2:41 and Chris Lane is leaving the backwater. He hasn't been particularly talkative the last few minutes -- he's not throwing in the towel but now things are out of his control.
Chris Lane clearly knows he's running out of time. "I can't think of anything I'd change," he said. Just then he set the hook violently -- but the fish was short. "I need some last-minute heroics." The Bassmaster Classic is on the line. Can you imagine what had to be going through his head this afternoon? How about the last 10 minutes? Could you handle it?
Chris Lane just switched to a square-billed crankbait
Tim Horton has finally made a small move
John Diaco, Ott DeDoe and Steve Kennedy have all located bedding bass and are trying to catch then currently. Kennedy estimates his at 6 pounds, DeFoe's is 4 and Diaco's is 3. None of them have had any luck. With about 15 minutes left to fish, they need to get these bass interested in a hurry. The bright skies have warmed the water and welcomed bass to the beds.
Bassmaster Classic competitor John Crews is now in the plastics business with his newly launched company, Missile Baits.
Greg Vinson is easing his way back to make the lock, so Cunningham and I are headed for the ramp. It's going to be a close one. Can't wait for the weigh-in.
