You could really tell the slow, unproductive morning was wearing on Crochet. He wasn't taking much at all.
He just put his second keeper in the boat, which looked to be in the 3-pound range, and it really perked him up. A slow grind can really take you out of it, and a single fish will completely change your outlook.
He's now about 10 pounds out of the lead while still needing three more keepers. That's a very attainable goal, especially when you consider what he weighed yesterday.
