The spectator boats have gathered at the mouth of the cut where Terry Scroggins and Brent Chapman are fishing. This is actually where Scroggins caught his 5-pounder on Thursday, contrary to my earlier misinformation. Now Scroggins is on the move again.

Today we have two great guys working to keep us out of trouble, Jackson Bean (left) and Kyle Bordelon. Jackson is actually the Marshal for Dean Rojas. But he's with us because we have our ESPN cameraman on the boat with Rojas. We'll get him back in the boat before long. In civilian life, Bean is a dentist in Greenville, Texas, east of Dallas.
This is Tony (left) and Mark hanging out on a warm Saturday morning, drinking a beer and talking about bass fishing. They live near Sulphur, La. Tony fishes this area often and has been after a six foot gar for about two years. He's caught him twice. But the gar got off both times. And by the way he raised an alligator here as well.
Terry Scroggins is running and gunning, as much as anyone can do that way up in the Calcasieu River. He stopped where he caught his big fish yesterday and added his second keeper today. Then he was off again. Now he has joined Brent Chapman in another small backwater area off the main river channel. They are working opposite sides of the bank, within casting distance of each other.

Gary Klein just gave the hi sign as we meet near the water at this 2013 Elite Series opener. Gary is having a rough go of it so far it appears. His Marshal signaled one fish about 2 pounds. I am going to catch back up with Cliff Crochet and see what he has rolling right now.
