Several anglers have mentioned the importance of one big fish in a five-bass limit this week. And we're seeing why right now. Of all the fish catches we've seen this morning, Brent Chapman is the only one with a kicker in the 6- to 7-pound range. Most are in the 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 pound range. Bernie Schultz just pointed out to us that he observed James Niggemeyer release a 5-pounder, which must have been illegally hooked outside the mouth.
Mark Davis just landed a 3 1/2-pounder.
Glenn Browne and Randall Tharp are fishing in close proximity.

Todd Faircloth is sight fishing right next to my camera boat. We had stayed in the same position for the last hour. Anglers are rotating past us.
An update from the water: Bradley Roy has a limit for about 11-12 pounds. Time to cull.
