Chris Lane makes an upgrade

Mar 22, 2014

Lane just upgraded about 1 pound. He caught one pushing three, allowing him to cull out one of his dinks. A couple more like that and he will be pushing 20.

Davis and local share area

Mar 22, 2014

Mark Davis is working an area as a local angler motors through and located a fish next to Davis. He staked the fish. They began to work it over and caught the 3 1/2-pound fish next to Davis. Davis moved on after they landed the fish. I will have the fish catch in my gallery later today.

Big-eyed old timer

Mar 22, 2014

Big fish have a way of being big-eyed. But no one compares to the old timer sitting nearby Chris Lane. He told us Lane was in the right area because he had caught 15 there this morning including a 12-pounder he was taking back to weigh. I asked to see it, and he ceremoniously lifted a 5-pounder from his well. To his credit, it might be a 6, but it's got a long way to go to be 12.
