Faircloth didn't stay in the honey hole too long. We've now moved up the lake almost to the spot where he caught his last big fish. Like most of the day, he's casting and pitching a Texas-rigged plastic worm to the edge of grass and pockets of vegetation. He's just slowly working each area. Take that back. We are moving again.
If you want to know exactly where Greg Hackney has had his success this week, check out this photo from Ken Golub, our boat driver and an Allstate sponsored pro angler from this area.
A look inside one of Hackney's big catches on Day 4 on Cayuga Lake.
Just looking through the Top 12 that is fishing today all I can say is: Wow! What a stacked final 12, maybe the best all season. Now this is nothing official, but simply my opinion. Toledo Bend was a tough Top 12, but there was no Hackney in the mix...Dardanelle is just a tough as this 12 and depending on your opinion it could be better than Cayuga, but there is no denying the resume that comes with today's anglers.
Going back through the photos of Faircloth's day the realization struck me that he's really just one bite away from catching Hackney. They started ounces apart. I have no idea what BassTrakk has for him, but I think it's possible for him to have as much as 18 pounds at the moment.
