Kevin VanDam gets a small one after a morning of pickerel.
Davis has moved for the first time since taking off this morning. He's gone a whole 3/4 of a mile or less. No boats in this area either. We've been talking a bit and I know he has more than one spot, one of those he's sharing with Casey Scanlon. Scanlon is not here so I'm not sure if this is it or not. I do know wherever the spot, Scanlom caught 20 pounds there in less than 20 minutes yesterday. And when Davis arrived there yesterday he was able to upgrade from about 16 to 20.
The Elite Series event here on Cayuga Lake in New York is dispelling a myth held by many anglers about northern natural lakes.

Mike McClelland was tied for 16th after Day 1 with 17-12, and he has a trio of 3-pounders so far this morning. He's fishing the western shore of Cayuga where basketball-size boulders are interspersed with patches of milfoil. "He's fishing a good spot and he's fishing it the right way," said our driver/tour guide, Ken Golub. McClelland fished here Thursday as well.

Cliff Prince just fished through the area close enough for he and Davis to exchange words. Prince said he had four. Davis responded with he had "5 but they ain't much." The two said a few more things that we couldn't hear. But Davis punctuated the exchange with a "yeah, they ain't biting good."
