Shaw Grigsby in good shape

May 9, 2013

Not far from Bobby Lane, we found Shaw Grigsby. He's fishing near an old boat ramp with a spinner bait. There's a woman high above him on a grassy knoll, watching from what appears to be her backyard. The current is flat out rolling through this stretch of the Alabama River. He has five fish and said his haul includes a 4-pounder and a 3-pounder. He's pleased, but he's such an affable guy, he's almost always pleased. Who wouldn't be? He's got a limit of fish in the boat and five more hours to be out on this beautiful river. It's just past 9:30 a.m.

A few more anglers

May 9, 2013

A few more anglers have been spotted as we move out of the canal leading to Bouldin Dam. John Murray is here and said he has two fish, including a 3-pounder. Rick Morris is slowly working the banks and Casey Scanlon is fishing a point where the canal meets the Coosa River. Scanlon has a limit. "Three 3-pounders," he said "Looking for a cull fish."

It was game on this morning

May 9, 2013

We found Bobby Lane in the main channel of the Alabama River. He says he has 13 or 14 pounds. "It was game on this morning." He just changed baits to a crank bait and caught another fish, but not a keeper.
