We found Keith Combs in El Tigre fishing alone. Except for the gulls. Our driver says Combs is on a rock pile that won a local tournament for him (the driver) last year.
We’ve left Crews and have picked up Ott DeFoe, who confirms what BASSTrakk reads, 29-4. He’s working shallow water much like Crews is. He says he’s got a 3, 5, 5 1/2 7 and 7 1/2. He’s desperate to get rid of the 3-pounder, but he said that he had all of those fish by 9:45 this morning, so he might have a hard time of it. Cliff Crochet is about two miles away and is doing largely the same thing. Both of these guys are excellent shallow-water fishermen.
Down the bank from Monroe and Kriet we find David Walker and Morizo Shimizu in a maze of sunken salt cedars.
We found Ish and Jeff Kriet midlake on the Mexican side. They are almost facing each other. Ish says instead of fours and sixes, he's getting threes.
We left Rick Clunn because he’s not doing a whole lot. You can only watch someone sit and chat with his Marshal and eat a sandwich for so long. He’s pretty much done for the day. Alton Jones is getting closer to him, so Clunn’s trolling around his area. John Crews has got a 3-pounder as his small fish and his biggest is in the 8-pound range. Sure, Falcon gets hammered mercilessly by guides and tournaments, but it’s still one of the best fisheries there is. As the tournament has progressed, the weights haven’t gotten any smaller.
