It's been a full hour since we launched and we've been idling around in this historic backwater. We just now ran across Yusuki Myasaki. He said he stopped because of the fog. He also noted that the water temperature had dropped almost 10 degrees since practice. No keepers yet. Spadra is a pretty well known area for tournament anglers in this state. Lots if events are won here and the last time the Elites were here, 8 of the final 12 fished here. Mark Menendez won that event.
Cliff Crochet has only one fish. He was flipping into the grass close to shore before switching to a crankbait. Chris Lane passes by heading into the Illinois Bayou. He's fishing out of a borrowed boat after his burned overnight. Steve Wright is working on that report.
Keith Combs crosses the lake and tries the shore Martens was on. He quickly hooks up and lands a three-pounder. It's his fourth fish. Combs is coming off a record-setting victory in the Toyota Texas Bass Classic, hauling in 110 pounds over three days.
