This time yesterday, Carl Jocumsen had 17 pounds in his livewell, and Joey Nania had most of his 21-11 weight by now too, including an 8 pounder.
By the looks of BassTrakk, the very narrow shad spawn was short-lived. Two anglers, John Garrett and James Rampey, have double digit limits. Jocumsen has 3 for 7-6, and Nania has 1 small keeper.
Andy Crawford just confirmed the shad spawn window was brief. He's at Koger Island now, where a pileup is in full swing around the island's rich growth of hydrilla.
Will grinding it out in the grass pay off here? Or will the guys fishing far up the lake fare well?
