Keith Combs just passed us going in the other direction up one of the major creeks. Two spectator boats were following in his wake. We joined the caravan. Combs has a cameraman in his boat who's videotaping his every move. Combs is casting tight to the shoreline. Combs is on the move after fishing this spot for all of 5 minutes. It's a short move, and Combs is slinging again. Comb's shirt is flapping in the breeze. He seems at ease and is talking casually to his cameraman.
Bassmaster Marshal Howard Avery is showing us that Miyazaki is on fire this morning. Here's number 4.

Jacobson and I are back on the water with John Snyder, a West Point Lake fishing guide. He knows this lake intimately. There has been a good chop on the water from the get-go. It's already more bumpy than at anytime yesterday. The wind is supposed to increase, which should make it another tough day for the pros that are sight fishing. There were some bedding bass caught yesterday, but that doesn't appear to be a winning strategy.
