From Short's marshal: I'm riding with Kevin Short this morning. Gray day with more wind than the first two days. About a 13-mile run and it was a tad bumpy. Not even close to the type of ride I had on St. Clair last year with Clifford Pirch. That was a 2 1/2 hour back beater from Metro Beach to Pelee. Last hour and a half was in 6-foot waves.
We had a decision to make this morning between being a gentleman or someone caught up in their own business. Actually a couple of times. The first was at the ramp. I'm getting ready to jump into the camera boat to get a head start on Edwin Evers. As I near the boat, Aaron Martens spins in the parking lot. He's overslept and running late. I check up get him launched and all is good. I have plenty of time to park his truck and get to the boat to at least get on the tail of Evers.
Just like he's done the last two days, Greg Hackney is off to a quick start. By 6:50, he had two bass in the 4-pounds-plus range. James Overstreet, boat driver Ken Golub and I will be on Hackney all day. Stay tuned.
After a brief run down the east side of Cayuga Lake, we pass Brandon Palaniuk, Jared Lintner, Kevin Hawk and some others to find Edwin Evers already hard at work. We just saw an epic catch ... of a pickerel. Marty Robinson and Brandon Card are in this area, but Edwin is heading south away from them. We follow.
I thought Faircloth just caught his third fish, but I guess I was wrong. Faircloth caught another fish and made a cull. So it seems he already has five in the livewell!
