Here's an idea of how much running Edwin Evers did today. From the launch, he went to the Bouldin Dam Canal and went up and down it several times. He ran up and down the Coosa for a while and then maybe a really long run (about 12 miles one way, we estimate) up the Tallapoosa and then back down that river. He then decided, oddly we found, to turn down the Alabama River and motor past the launch. It was at that point we realized that we were running low on gas.

Steve Kennedy is back near the park at Wetmpka. When he got here, Brent Chapman was on the spot where Kennedy caught his 4-14, his biggest spotted bass yesterday. Chapman has moved back up the river and Kennedy has this place to himself. They are both scrambling, trying to find a game-changer in the final minutes. James Overstreet and I are out of here, headed to Montgomery.
Edwin Evers passed by us, so we followed him to Cooter's Pond. As soon as he made a cast, he caught two back to back. He upgraded a little. Then he caught a third one and culled again. I'd estimate his last catch to be close to 3 pounds.
