Michael Iaconelli has done a lot of bouncing around the past hour as he looks for his second keeper. Since he's such an up-tempo guy, it's hard to tell if he's getting antsy or just running and gunning by design. Either way, he's got some catching up to do as BASSTrakk now has him unofficially in eighth place, more than 11 pounds out of the lead.
David Walker likes it here. We knew he wasn't going far when he didn't even stow his trolling motor during his last jump. We figure he's been fishing here all four days, why stop now? I also saw my first goose, which is good. This place isn't a pond, but it does have geese.
When I wrote my fantasy fishing story I knew that Guntersville would be a slugfest....who didn't? But I went the route of not choosing any Alabama anglers and advising fantasy fishing players to stay away from locals as it won't help as much in this event. Of the 18 Alabama anglers only two are left: Derek Remitz and Greg Vinson.
We found Dean Rojas up near the shore over by the Guntersville dam. "I talked to Dean last night and he said he thought he'd used up all his sight fish," said Davy Hite. "But he's close enough to the shore that if he saw a fish, he'd pitch at it." Right now, he's using a creature bait up against the bank near the dam.
Combs is on the right kind with this, his fifth.
Six of the 12 anglers on Championship Sunday have their limits. Keith Combs, Skeet Reese, David Walker, Jason Christie, Greg Vinson and Brent Ehrler all have their limits. Combs has over 20 pounds right now unofficially and is leading. Reese is not far behind while Walker is right behind. Christie and Vinson moved into the Top 5 unofficially. Ehrler started in 12th, but he has moved up to roughly 9th.
