Jacob Powroznik is sharing water this morning with another grass specialist, Randall Tharp.
They're fishing just a few yards down a grassy bank from one another.
Between us and them, we can see acres of hydrilla just beneath the surface and a few areas where it tops out above the surface.
Our boat driver says this entire canal will eventually be covered in matted grass sometime today as the tide gets low.
Everyone will be aiming to leave before that happens.
