Caged animals

Lee Livesay spoke the word about the mood of the guys as we go into the second hour of the fog delay.

"We are like a bunch of caged animals."

The thick fog is concentrated around the takeoff area. Meanwhile, the fog has dissipated elsewhere.

What's notable is practice is in full swing for the 230-boat amateur tournament set for later this week. That means the heat is already on in terms of fishing pressure. You've got to think that'll be a factor due to the delay.

At this point, I've got to think that guys like Matt Arey and those making the long run up into the Hiwassee River are thinking twice about doing that. Lost fishing time is now a must to reevaluate into the day's game plan.
