Shaw Grigsby just boated his first keeper. It looked like a two pounder. He's slowly fishing around the edge of a pond, off the body of the main lake. No doubt Shaw is feeling some pressure, as the Day 1 leader. But he's the picture of relaxation, leaning against his front seat and methodically working his pattern.
