This was the parting shot taken by Andy Crawford after Bobby Stanfill made his planned 10th cast at a fishing spot.
"It's been like this all day," Crawford said. "He runs, he stops, he runs again."
What happened next was Stanfill sped away, headed towards the opposite end of the lake. Still swimming inside his livewell was 8 pounds. He had more than 16 pounds this time yesterday.
I just arrived at the lake, and the potential reason why was confirmed. There is no wind. Not even a breeze to break the glasslike looking surface.
By all accounts, what that means is the topwater bite might be suffering. Or, some ingenuitive, forward-thinking angler put the topwater away and has come up with a new strategy to confront the changing conditions. We shall see soon enough.
