Three for Tietje

Aug 22, 2013

Tietje has his third keeper but it's another small one. He hasn't went this long without a big bite all week and he's wondering what's going on with the bigger fish right now! Photo by Marshal Trait Crist.

KVD with two

Aug 22, 2013

We start to idle away from KVD when he sets the hook with his long baitcasting rod. He's into a good bass and takes his time with it. After working the bass at boatside for awhile, he swings what looks to be a 4-pounder over the side with his rod. The bass is quickly fixed to a culling float and dropped into his livewell. We move a quarter mile or so to where JVD is fishing. He's drop shot fishing and has four in the box. Two of them will go 4 pounds. "They look terrible," JVD says.

Browning has two

Stephen Browning's second keeper of the day is reportedly a good one.

KVD hanging tough

Aug 22, 2013

We've been watching KVD casting and winding for several minutes without a fish. That doesn't seem right, given that he's the No. 1 bass angler fishing the No. 1 bass lake in the country.
