Evers finally has keeper No. 1

Finally things are starting to look up for Evers. He just pulled a 3-pounder out of a weedbed in this little backwater lake. He's working the grass slowly and methodically, dipping a soft plastic here and there into openings.

There are weeds in the middle of the lake, which is a good thing because other fishermen have the shoreline staked out. We count eight local boats in this 150-acre lake. Some, but not all, are after panfish.
