Another view of the bridge

  Dean Rojas has now moved downstream from where he caught the 5-pounder, above the bridge. But the crowd on the bridge is getting bigger.

Faircloth fishing really shallow

Mar 17, 2013

Todd Faircloth is still in this same bayou, which appears to be about 100 yards wide. From what I can see, he's in very shallow water, maybe a foot or two deep. He's throwing often, but has been quiet for a while now. He's in good shape, with a limit we're guessing is 14 pounds, maybe a pound heavier. Swimbaits. Senko works in succession. The wind is really blowing strong now, straight out of the south.

Sabine from the air

Get a bird's-eye view of the Sabine River system and see what tight quarters some of the pros are fishing in.

They're spawning everywhere!

Mar 17, 2013

The anglers have mentioned how a lack of water clarity here prevents them from being able to see spawning beds. They know the spawn is in full swing though.   Jim Sexton and I, however, had no problem spotting this spawning bed along Bayou D'Indie.   It did not have a bass on it.
