A few thoughts

I have a few things rumbling through my brain (those who know me may say too many! You know who you are!)  

Nice one for Rojas

Ish misses a monster

Mar 22, 2013

Ish just had the hook on a monster. But after having him on for just a second, the fish pulled off. He gave himself about a minute to be disappointed and get his gear back in order. Now he's back at it. These fish are scattered enough in different ranges of depth, with some on the bottom, others suspended that any cast could produce a giant. With so much to cast too, staying keyed up has to be a challenge.

A bumpy start for Jeremy Starks

Mar 22, 2013

Jeremy Starks is off to a bumpy start. He and Chad Pipkens started on a spot down on the lower end  near the dam this morning. Within the first 20 minutes Starks caught a 6 Pipkens a 7 and then Starks lost a 5 and broke off another big fish.    It's been 30 minutes since Starks' last bite. Pipkens has vacated the area. Grind time now for Starks. He said he only had 4 big bites yesterday. He went 2 for 4 on landing them. Today he's at 1 for 3. Not the start he wanted.

Good start for Ish Monroe

Mar 22, 2013

Pulled up on Ish Monroe in a huge bay. Like most, he's pitching to shallow cover.   Currently he has four fish for about 13 pounds. That's a good start. His first priority this morning is to catch a limit to ensure he will stick around for Day Three.   He will then start his work on building a big sack. One thing to his advantage is, he has the bay to himself. There is an occasional local who slips in and out, plus an always present Border Patrol unit. But no Elites have come close.
