Ike covering ground

Iaconelli is covering some ground today and will likely continue that trend.

He's running a typical Lake Dardanelle pattern for this time of year, hitting water lillies on the bank when they are in front of him and paying close attention to variations in bottom contour just off the bank.

When he's shallow he appears to be throwing a frog. And out it looks like he's casting a square bill.

We aren't getting close enough to really dial in on baits yet. But he does have one keeper in the boat, a 2-pound class fish.

The rain has let off for the moment. Not that any of it matters to Ike. We started the day in a steady rain and Ike never donned a rain jacket.
