Chris O'Brien of New York and Steve Conde of Rhode Island have three in the boat, two of which they just caught right here. It's not enough yet, they say, but they still have several hours left.

Ricky Turczak of Massachusetts and Bill Kuslaka of New Hampshire have three fish in the boat. "It's not much," said Turczak.
