A fish just broke in front of Russ Lane. He started reeling fast, so did Jeff Kriet. So did KVD. KVD, much further out, fired and landed on the same spot. Kriet's lure landed next to it at about same time. Same for Lane. All three guys landed their baits in the same 1-square foot spot. "Dang," Kriet said to KVD, "you have any line left on your reel?" No bites for any of the Three Amigos.
Kevin VanDam just caught a 4-(his estimate) or 5-(our estimate) pounder. That puts him in the 18 pound range. Should be enough for him to fish on Saturday.
