Christie just caught two more back-to-back casts. He now has three fish for 7-8 pounds.
Jason Christie is on the board! Fishing near the honeycomb creek bridge, Christie moved to the backside of the bridge and threw a swimbait to the corner of the gap, Hopkins and landing a fish about 3 lbs. By Garrick Dixon
Michael Iaconelli is now fishing his fourth spot in Siebold Creek, and he still has only one fish. He has been surprisingly lonely, with most of the spectator boats in the area choosing to follow Skeet Reese instead. The only noise from Ike's area so far came from a Bluetick hound dog in a nearby boat. It's the only thing that's "gone Ike" so far.
Walker just added his fourth keeper. This one like the rest; hovering around the 2-pound mark. That gives him approximately 8 pounds. This time yesterday, he had one keeper in the boat. Maybe that first cast, first fish thing will work out after all.
Walker yelled out wanting to know how Remitz was doing. They are allowed that type of info today.
Walker is targeting his humps mostly with a Chatterbait type lure, but he's also switching up with a swimbait, a crankbait and the occasional jig.
Starting off at Browns creek bridge Christie made several casts with a large swimbait, but didn't connect with any fish. A short time later he relocated to honeycomb creek bridge and is now working both a swimbait and a jig. No fish yet, but the sun is rising fast, and Christie looks focused.

A big change this morning from yesterday is the number of boats on the water. Walker is fishing 1/4 of a mile from the Goose Pond ramp. Yesterday there were three tournaments that took off from that ramp. And there were boats in every nook and cranny. Today there are boats around but less than 10 percent of what was here. That might change as the day progresses and folks get out of church. But right now, Walker is fishing some of the least-pressured water he's seen in a few days.
Michael Iaconelli just lost a brief battle with what was obviously a big fish. But he didn't seem too heartbroken when it came off right at the boat. "It was a big catfish," he said. "About a 10-pounder."
