Catch No. 2 and 3 for Evers

May 12, 2013

Edwin Evers just boated his second fish. Looks like it's about 2 pounds. There are five boats following him, and he's asked everyone to turn off their depthfinders. Apparently he's getting some sort of interference from the other boaters' electronics.   As I type, he has another fish on. This one looks like a 3-pounder.   As expected, the Oklahoma pro is onto the early morning bite. Three fish in the well for about 7 pounds, is my guess.

Evers switches it up

May 12, 2013

Edwin Evers just put his first fish in the boat. He made about a half-mile run down the Bouldin Canal and boated what looks to be a fish that weighs about 1 1/2 pounds.

Evers makes his first casts

May 12, 2013

Edwin Evers just arrived in the Bouldin Dam Canal and three spectator boats followed him in. Edwin wastes little time hitting the bank, hopping onto the front of his boat and throwing a deep diving crankbait. Looks like it's chartreuse with a blue back. If today is anything like the past three days, it shouldn't be long before he starts boating a few of these early morning bass.

Day Four on the Alabama River is underway

Day Four on the beautiful Alabama River system begins for us with another launch at Gold Star Park in Wetumpka, a nice town just outside of Montgomery.

Skeet Reese heads out, 100 feet from where he started!

May 12, 2013

Reese, standing in seventh place at the start of Day Four, starts his day on the river. He didn't go far, giving spectators at launch something to watch after the 12 boats were away.
