Gerald Swindle hasn't cranked his outboard yet, but he already has two fish in the boat, including one that might go 2 1/2 pounds. The other one just met the14-inch minimum length limit. Swindle simply trolled into the back of the cove at Heritage Landing takeoff/weigh-in site and started fishing. He appears to be dragging some kind of soft plastic in about 6 or 8 feet of water.
Don't expect big weights at today's Day One All-Star weigh-in at Lake Muskegon. Hank Cherry said he couldn't find anything shallow in practice this week, so he's concentrating on deeper stuff today. "I didn't catch many, but the ones I caught were good ones," Cherry said. "The goal is one bite an hour." So what would five "good ones" weigh? "About 14 pounds," Cherry said.

This was a question on the game show Jeopardy tonight. Perfect timing for the start of All Star Week.
