Poche and spectators

Feb 25, 2012

I'd like to give a shout out to Bronk from nearby Alexandria. He's one of the handful of spectators watching the action back in this pond.

Kriet by the ramp

Feb 25, 2012

We left McDade and headed upriver. Halfway back we passed Jeff Kriet, so it's clear that he abandoned the pond by the ramp sooner than he did yesterday

Evers looking for Lady Luck

Feb 25, 2012

Edwin Evers hasn't caught a fish since we've been watching him. He has moved from the very back of the pocket to the middle of it, covering about 150 yards, mostly with a push pole. He's obviously looking at one right now, but so far, he's having little luck enticing it to bite.

Evers in pocket near Faircloth

Feb 25, 2012

We just realized that Edwin Evers is in the back of this pocket with Faircloth. We hate to leave the hot hand, but Evers hasn't moved in over an hour, so we have a suspicion he may be onto something, too.   Good thing we didn't go. Faircloth just caught a 2.5-pounder and culled again.
