Stopped by a spoke a few words with Bernie Schultz. He has a "keeper" in his livewell. He says he has a dozen spots which he rotates between each day. The area he is casting on now has very little tide movement at the moment. He said he had not visited this spot yesterday. He saw it this morning and felt he needed to give it a try.
Dave Mercer checks in with an Iaconelli update.
First bass for Casey Ashley. From Marshal Brian McCulley
Dennis Tietje sent us this photo and said, "When the tide come up I'm gonna catch a big girl out of the back of this thing."
Brandon's rod was bent for the first time this morning after a 30 mile run south, wrong kinda bass though. But worth the drive. On the board with a two pound smallie.

Jason Christie looking for fish but dont' forget you are in the city with planes flying overhead
We just discovered Cliff Crochet. He's fishing something that you might call Lilly Pads in Louisiana, which is where Cliff is from. He tells us he has four fish for around six pounds already in the livewell. We see two other anglers right around the corner, so we'll catch up with them momentarily.
