I just called up weather radar on my iPhone. Wish I hadn't done that. In answer to my previous question about whether it was getting darker or I was dying, I think the answer might be all of the above. Call up the radar for Port Arthur, Texas, and you'll see what I mean. On the fishing front, we think we just saw Todd Faircloth catch a keeper. And Shaw Grigsby just put another one in the livewell. I'm out. It's drying time again for Stevie's iPhone, sung to the tune of "Crying Time Again."
We lost Hackney. We found a place to hide from what we did find, lightning.

Chris Lane's cameraman Brian Mason just told us his BASSTrakk has stopped working. But he reported to us that Lane has two fish for a combined weight of about 4 pounds. Lane said the tide has been much too high for a solid bite so far.

It's getting darker, I hope. Either the skies are growing darker, or I'm dying. James Overstreet just confirmed the former while wishing for the latter. Todd Faircloth just lost two non-keepers, which are the ones you hope to lose. We just saw a flash of lightning, and it has started raining harder than ever. I love my job.
