Ashley moves, rallies

Casey Ashley mentioned yesterday that he was hoping to stay in the same area over the next two days, saying, "It's a big place and I've got it all to myself."

But at the same time, he noticed some change was in the air, literally.

"They quit for awhile today," he said. "I don't know what the deal was. The wind changed. It was blowing more out of the west rather than the south. The place I'm fishing, they really like that south wind."

And, apparently, they really don't like the north wind that is blowing today. So Ashley made a move, according to Steve Bowman, who is following him this morning. And it started paying off instantly. Ashley landed two 3 1/2-pounders and a 4-12. He's got at least the 16-6 BASSTrakk shows, maybe closer to 17 pounds, according to Bowman. Russ Lane is within sight, and he's catching 'em too.
