We followed the Coosa up to Wetumpka and caught up with Bobby Lane, who's having a solid day sitting in 6th place according to BASSTrakk. Just as my driver is asking me if I'm crazy wanting him to go north to see Steve Kennedy, B.A.S.S. photographer James Overstreet comes blasting past us headed south. My driver is not impressed and doesn't want to wreck his boat in what are normally impassable but currently merely treacherous waters.

Spectators have found Edwin Evers in the Bouldin Dam Canal. They are getting a good show so far.

Brent Chapman continued to catch fish until James Overstreet and I had to leave the Coosa River and head to Montgomery.
Pros near the dam experienced rough water again today.

We happened upon Bobby Lane, who was idling underneath a bridge just past the Gold Star Park launch. Looks like "Big Fish" is going to head up the Coosa a little farther. There are plenty of youngsters and a couple of adults bank fishing at the launch. A group of people on the opposite side of the river was watching the action from their perch.
