The wind is blowing and the sun is shining as Day 2 starts on the St. Lawrence River. The Elite Series anglers liked what they saw before the 6:15 a.m. takeoff - especially the site of flags flapping in a 10 to 15 mph west/southwest wind. "Smallmouth bass like wind and sun," said Bernie Schultz, who starts the day in third place with 21-7. And that's what's predicted for today - 65 degrees at takeoff, high of 82, only a 10 percent chance of rain.
