We picked up Cory Johnston just as he was leaving an offshore reef in the Goose Island area, but he was pulling his trolling motor.
He’s now made three stops, pitching a jig into shallow grass beds.
He’s caught one throwback and swung on a couple of bass since we’ve been following him, but he admitted he’s not having a stellar day.
“It’s been tough,” Johnston said. “I’ve got two good fish and three small ones.”
