Photographer James Overstreet and I just found Britt Myers, the Day Two leader, in Mud Creek. And he already has a five-bass-limit weighing about 10 pounds.We've seen him catch three fish in five minutes, although one was a white bass. "I thought I had a monster," said Myers of the first bass we saw him catch. "It was a 2-pounder I had hooked in the belly." The rain is starting to fall here and the radar doesn't look good, so this may be our last post for awhile.
With inclement weather imminent reporters and fans seek shelter from the rain.
The anglers have left the dock for Day Three and for those of us getting ready to start watching this unfold, there is a little bit of nervous energy in the air.
