Mister Meticulous

Alton Jones leaves no detail unaddressed. He wants absolutely no interference that might upset the fish. He asked us to lower our Power-Poles and turn off all electronics. (I hope he doesn't mean my iPad!) He mistakenly anchored a little close to the gap in the rocks where he's fishing, but he refuses to back up for fear of alerting the fish to his presence.

Yesterday, he told me that he would catch 10 fish off this spot and then leave to give the bass a 30-minute reprieve. When he returned each time, the school was on fire again.

Jones has "managed" his fish all week, making sure he left enough for the next round. Today is the final act in the Plano Bassmaster Elite at the Mississippi River presented by Favorite Fishing, so Jones will milk this spot for all it's worth.
