Card’s big spot

While most of the rest of the field is fishing deep structure with finesse baits, Brandon Card is burning the bank with a small Yo-Zuri crankbait.

When we pulled up to him for a second visit today he told us about a 5 1/2-pound spotted bass that he caught a little earlier. He is excited about having that big fish in his livewell.

He said the fish was barely hooked when he brought it in. “I was screaming and begging for it not to get off,” he said. Fortunately, it did not.

He caught a 2 1/2 pounder a few minutes after the big one, but nothing since then.

“The wind has picked up, and they should be biting better right now,” he said.

Card’s lure is picking up grass every other cast. “This grass is driving me crazy,” Card said.
