KVD with #3 . A 1.75 lb-er small mouth. Fog is getting worse.
We found Morizo Shimizu fishing in bright early morning sunlight. He is just off the main lake and the water is still. Things are looking up for the sight fisherman. Shimizu is not sight fishing. Seigo tells me that Shimizu is Japan's Michael Iaconelli. Shimizu hasn't had anything to scream about yet. His colorful blue and yellow wrap really pops in the early sunlight. Shimizu sets the hook and gingerly works a nice bass to the boat. He scoops the bass into the boat. It's his third keeper.
It's attention to detail like this that will help keep Vinson ahead of the curb.
We just left Reese. What was a low fog has turned into a dense fog bank in the creek. It clears enough to run when we reach the main lake.
