Looking down under Skeet' s boat, it's clear but not as clear as some places on the river. He says this is a huge flat. It picks up a little sediment as it flows over the flat.   Update by Bassmaster Marshal Barb Elliott

Alton Jones running and gunning

Aug 2, 2015

So far this morning it's been a fast paced slow grind for Alton Jones. He's got three in the box, but none of the 4-to-5-pounders he's going to need to come from behind today.   Alton is drifting ledges in the strong St Lawrence current. Letting his drop shot drag the bottom over a 50-yard stretch of ledge, then bouncing to the next stretch, not even bothering to lift his trolling motor out of the water.  

Much more spread out this year

Aug 2, 2015

Thinking back to Day 4 on the St. Lawrence in 2013, that top 12 was much more bunched up in one area.   That year Steve Bowman and I stayed in about a three-mile radius and were able to  report on 6 or 7 guys. Of course the winner that year, Brandon Palaniuk, ran all the way to Lake Ontario.
