Hank Cherry, Cody Hollen and Frank Talley are all fishing in a confined area. Cherry is the defending world champion who won his title here in 2020. Talley won here last June.
The trio are fishing a massive eelgrass flat growing around an island. The strike zone tapers from 15 feet to the shoreline, and jerkbaits and other reaction baits are the lures of choice.
Yesterday I talked with Cherry while doing Dock Talk. He told me due to the strong easterly winds that he's fishing on the east shore to avoid it. The wind is relatively calm now, but daytime heating kicks it up.
