Koby Kreiger is sharing a canal system locals call “The Fingers” with Day 3 leader Stetson Blaylock, although he stayed out of Blaylock’s starting banks for the first hour or so of the day.
Kreiger missed two bites before moving into the same pocket as Blaylock.
“Fish 2, Kreiger 0,” he said.
Shortly after easing into Blaylock’s pocket, Kreiger watched as Blaylock catch what looked to be a 3-pounder.
Kreiger adjusted to another section of the canal, and quickly set the hook on his first fish of the day. It wasn’t heavy, but it broke the ice.
