Steve Bowman and I are following Cherry this morning. He begins the day in a third-place tie with Takahiro Omori in the Angler of the Year standings.
Hank Cherry just caught his first fish of the day. It's only an icebreaker, weighing about 1 1/2 pounds. Cherry swung and missed, then pitched back in the same spot and hooked up. He's working shallow, heading toward a place that has been the mother lode for him this week.
