We made a long run toward the dam in search of Bobby Lane, passing Brett Hite going the other way. After a brief detour to Iaconelli, we found Lane far back in a creek. It is drizzling now but across from us the sun is trying to peek out. There seems to be a lot more bird life down here -- both gulls and loons -- so I can only suspect that massive groups of bluebacks are roaming around.
Dean Rojas has moved to another area near the dam, and if the gulls diving into the water are any indication, there's a lot of baitfish in the area.
On the heels of a strong morning bite, Casey Ashley grabs the lead from Takahiro Omori on Championship Sunday.
Iaconelli just boated his fifth fish. It was about 1 1/2 pounds, so ideally he'd cull that one before the day is over, too. He appears more deliberate and energized now that his well is full. Now the quest for a pair of kickers is in full swing.
Iaconelli is in the midst of another dry spell. It's been a while since he's caught a fish, and the last one wasn't the caliber he needs to make a run at this. He needs another good keeper and then likely a 5-plus to do himself any favors. He's still dragging a football jig through brush.
