“The day’s still young!”

With one three-pounder in the boat, Austin Felix has made the short run to his starting spot from yesterday. Difference is, he’s hitting it today just over an hour earlier than he hit it yesterday due to the fog delay.

“Hopefully they’re here again and we’ll catch’em because we’re earlier than yesterday,” says the Phoenix Pro.

Felix has put the frog rod down in favor of the spinning tackle now. It took him a minute to locate exactly which rod he wanted to start with. “Too many rods on the deck,” he says to me.

“Well, you have 18 rods on the deck,” I responded. “That’s one less than yesterday when I counted 19 at one point.”

The young rookie responded, “The day’s still young!”
