Dean Rojas just landed a 5-pounder as a crowd of 28 cheer and clap.
Todd Faircloth is still in this same bayou, which appears to be about 100 yards wide. From what I can see, he's in very shallow water, maybe a foot or two deep. He's throwing often, but has been quiet for a while now. He's in good shape, with a limit we're guessing is 14 pounds, maybe a pound heavier. Swimbaits. Senko works in succession. The wind is really blowing strong now, straight out of the south.
Get a bird's-eye view of the Sabine River system and see what tight quarters some of the pros are fishing in.
The anglers have mentioned how a lack of water clarity here prevents them from being able to see spawning beds. They know the spawn is in full swing though. Jim Sexton and I, however, had no problem spotting this spawning bed along Bayou D'Indie. It did not have a bass on it.
Neither rain, nor sleet, nor crossing a log with a $10,000 camera shall keep us from our appointed blogging rounds. Jim Sexton demonstrates that he has a future in log rolling on the Stihl Timbersports tour as we returned from a hike in the woods along Bayou D'Inde to catch up with Jeff Kriet. There is some thick stuff along the bayou, but there are mobile homes and houses nearby every stretch of this water. So there are clear paths to take, and logs to cross.
