Trevor Howard and Marty Ballard of University of Kentucky haven't caught anything yet. They're plugging away at the bluff wall.
Janie Chase and Jill Vanlandingham are catching "shorties and toothy critters."
John Thornton and Donnie Davis are hoping for some good luck. "It could be better," said Davis. "I just don't think they're here." They'll be moving soon.
Pat Hatcliff and Kimmy Perryman said they're doing ok, "but not good enough." "We're about to make a long, long move!" said Hatcliff.
Brian Elder and Troy Mims are fishing the power plant discharge area. They've caught a couple, but the bass are really small. "They won't go on your list of Top 100 kickers!" said Mims.
It may be hard for pro Jimmy Mason to get Don Barone to stop writing and start fishing.
It should prove to be an interesting day. Currently there is no wind. We can't see if there is current on the lake yet. And it's forecast to be hot as blazes. Most of us in the event are from other states, which makes this event pretty cool. The conditions aren't the greatest, at least we think they aren't the greatest. It all remains to be seen. Overstreet and I started fishing this event like we've seen the Elites do it over the years. It didn't work for us.
