A break from the wind

Chad Morgenthaler finally gave up in the waters in front of Clayton, making a 10-minute run to a protected channel connecting the U.S. and Canadian channel.

The difference in the wind is dramatic. There’s just a small chop on the waters now.

He connected with three small bass today. He still has only one 2-pounder in the livewell.

With the lake starting to produce some bass - and Brock Mosley catching two quality fish in the river - Morgenthaler has slipped to fifth, according to BASSTrakk.

He’s 14-4 behind leader Paul Mueller.
