Mike McClelland boats his limit with a beautiful Alabama river spot.
Elites leave Cooter's Pond to see what they can do on the Alabama River.

I'm with photographer Darren Jacobson and boat driver Mike Noble of Wetumpka, Ala. We ran 30 minutes or so up the Alabama River and have reached the Walter Bouldin Dam. On our way, we passed about two dozen anglers and saw fish catches from Keith Combs, Jonathon VanDam and Casey Scanlon. We've found Bill Lowen now just off the dam; he's fishing the shoreline. He reports he's already caught four and lost "two giants."

Shaw just nailed keeper No. 4. It's a 3-pounder, and fish are schooling all around the boat. Photo by Trait Crist.
