Hats off

Somehow Laurie and I have been fortunate to stumble across some of the higher ranked anglers in this event. Right now we are watching Brandon Cobb, who is seventh with 8-7, Shane Lehew, who is 12th with 7-0, and Greg DiPalma. All are fishing fairly close to one another in a shallow pocket in Lake George.

Nobody has caught anything since we pulled up to them,. They have their power poles down and seem to be working for betting fish.

My hat is off to them if they can see fish in this dark, tannin-stained water. Visibility is much poorer in this tournament than it has been in our previous visits to the St. Johns River.
