We've noticed much less boat traffic on Chicamauga today compared to Saturday and even Friday when it seemed quite busy. But our boat driver, local Mark Grimsley, tells us those days were light compared to a normal weekend; many boaters were down in Chattanooga at Riverbend, the big annual event with music and fireworks. We're thinking many of those boaters may have hangovers today and are staying inside.
Matt Herren is fishing deep structure now, returned to a spot he tried late this morning. He's got around 17 pounds right now, but during the first three days of this derby he's averaged more than 22 pounds a day. If he can get back to that number today we're looking at a tight finish.
Jacob Wheeler has been working his way back north from Chester Frost Park.
