Lowen has had plenty of bites — crappie, pickerel and short bass, but just one keeper. He's been doing best on an incoming tide, which will arrive today just in time for him to turn around and go home. He said that he doesn't have one particular place he wants to be when the tide gets out, usually considered to be the best time to get a bite — or four — from legal-sized fish. He continued to key on every little current break back here, where the creek is threatening to become a trout stream.
After an hour and a half of idling through extremely low water, we've found Jason Christie. He's in the middle of changing his battery, which didn't get a good charge last night. He's about to resume fishing.

After two quick bites John Crews is felling better about his morning on the Delware River.
All of this area will be covered with water when we make our exit from Big Timber Creek. Check out Kevin Hawk's video about low tide on BASSCam.
Grigsby set the hook hard and expressed disgust that the fish had taken him into the log. A few seconds later he realized that the fish was still on, still digging under the cover. He circled the log several times, dropping his power poles to try to untangle the bass. He pulled, he jabbed, he poked, he twisted, but it was just too deep to reach down to it. "I hate to break a fish off, but there's nothing you can do," he said. Snap. Get another one out, retie, back to work. Ouch.

We had to share this video from the Day 3 weigh-in as Kevin Short does a little smack talkin'!
Bassmaster Marshal Thaddeus Drummond reports that Chris Lane has added a second bass to the live well. It looks like a one and a half pound fish.
