Still looking for his first fish, Jason Christie left his deep-water spot and made a 10 minute run south to a shallow flat. Update by Bassmaster Marshal Matt Franzini
The forecast called for a 7-10 mph winds out of the west. Instead, it's bucking 15-20 from the southwest, and it's going to be an interesting ride back to weigh-in. Ish decided to move into Sister Bay, out of the wind, hoping to fill his limit. He's fishing a sea wall just outside of a small marina where average size fish are typically available. He's still looking for three fish to start culling. Onward.
Jacob Powroznik hooked up again and boated a keeper smallmouth. That is two keepers if my count is correct. We have seen both of his fish today, but we could have missed one in the first five minutes of the day.

James Elam appears to be taking his time with all his catches. I'm talking like 5 to 10 minutes. He's doing quite well today, so I'm not judging. We appreciate it because we're not missing any photos because we have plenty of time to get ready. James and Brett Hite have pretty much stayed in this area all morning. It's very close to takeoff, and I could probably swim back to the hotel if I needed to.
