Britt Myers loves Bull Shoals

Apr 21, 2013

Cliff Pace buzzed out of here shortly after Britt Myers buzzed in. Myers finished second here last year while fishing a completely different area of the lake than he is this year. And he's having another good tournament. He began the day in ninth place.   "I've got three good ones and one small one," Myers said.   He estimated his weight at 9 1/2 pounds.   Gerald Swindle just buzzed by this gathering place.

Pace has little limit

Apr 21, 2013

James Overstreet and I were preparing to roam, in search for some cell service and other anglers, when Cliff Pace pulled into the front of the cut where Cliff Prince and Steve Kennedy are fishing, so we stopped for a visit.   "Zero," Pace said when asked what he'd caught. "I've got a limit, but it might as well be zero -- four little spots and a smallmouth."   Pace just landed another dink that went back in the lake.  

Jeff Kriet catches No. 5

Jeff Kriet is finesse fishing a steep rocky bank. The breeze pushes him along at just the right pace with the sun at his back.   He sets the hook and lands his fifth keeper, a small spotted bass.  

Limits are where it's at

Apr 21, 2013

This early in an Elite season, there are usually a couple of dozen anglers who have limited each day they’ve been on the water. In 2013, though, there was the Sabine River, where a limit was rare.

Vinson fighting debris

Apr 21, 2013

Vinson's move was straight across the big creek and designed to get away from the debris that has built in his primary area.   "I can't get away from the junk," he said.  

Prince has four

Apr 21, 2013

We are in a small cut where Cliff Prince is working down one bank and Steve Kennedy is going down the other. Both are catching fish.   Prince just put his fourth keeper in the boat. He is catching lots of short fish. He's caught all three species, but the keepers so far are three smallmouths and a spotted bass.

Vinson making a short move

Apr 21, 2013

Vinson is making a short move. It's the first time we've seen him move away from his primary area since Day One.   He may be letting it rest or trying to expand. We're hot on his tail so we should have an idea if this was a stroke of brilliance or just a change of pace.
