In search of the leader

May 10, 2013

Our hunt for tournament leader John Murray up the Coosa River didn't have have us finding him, though we did see Chris Lane and Gerald Swindle speed by us heading up that river. We came back down the Coosa and found Shaw Grigsby, fishing on a flooded campsite, underneath a clothesline. Shaw said he has four in the tank so far. No report on how heavy they are though he did well in this general area on Thursday. Off we go again.
