Jamie Horton and Aaron Martens got close enough to share a few woes of the day, then Horton trolled to the opposite bank of this shallow cut near Taylor Bayou. It's about 25 yards wide.   Martens has caught five short fish while we've been here. Horton hasn't had that many bites, but he just landed a "quality" bass.
