4 so far for Morizo with one over 4! Photos by Marshal James Watson.
After catching two smallies almost back-to-back, Lane has yet catch another bass. I don't know how fast the bite was for him yesterday. It may have been slow then, too. You don't have to catch lots of bass to win an Elite Series tournament, as long as the ones you are catching are chubs. Morizo Shimizu ran past us awhile ago. He's fishing about half a mile farther out. Shimizu started the day in 22nd place with 17 pounds even. I don't know If he was fishing Lake Huron yesterday.

KVD gets a nice 4lb-er. Marshal Shawn Myers.
We left Detroit at 5:30 this morning and have just arrived at Erie in Ohio, getting ready to boat over into Canada. The wind is pretty sporty and from what we can tell Erie is going to be a booger this morning. Our driver, Chris Noffsinger characterizes it much more colorful terms but they are unprintable. We are sure Aaron Martens had a better ride for much of his trip, but the fishing area could be rougher.
Sometimes the messages we get from the Marshals are short, which is understandable because they are on the water and in a hurry to get back to the action. This one, in particular, struck me as almost poetic: Cliff crochet Joe Bedra Having a slow start
Hank Cherry lost a 4 pounder and right after that, caught this nice muskie!
