Photo by Carlos Vergara 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.
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.
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.
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.
