Short boats number two! About a pound and a half. He's rerigging while talking to a BASS photographer who's inboard with us.
I’m with Kevin Short at the moment, working a grassbed with Greg Hackney easing toward us. "This isn't like fishing in that crowd up there where you're getting lots of bites," he said. "Down here, you’re looking for five bites a day, but they're gonna be good ones.” That's obviously the case, seeing as how he weighed 19-14 yesterday and is sitting in third place. He's currently got two fish for about five pounds.
Watching Evers has reminded me of last year and it's correlation to this season. This is the second year in a row when the unthinkable has happened during the final regular season event. Last season Evers was in the middle of that. At the time, many of us thought there was no way Evers was not going to win the AOY. He had a commanding lead and the fickle nature of tournament fishing caused him to drop and open the door for Aaron Martens.
Nice way to start the morning — 4 1/2-pounder. Phot by Bassmaster marshal Ron Riggs
