Skeet having a 'hot mess' day

In most instances, being described as a "hot mess" isn't a compliment. But Skeet Reese is putting a positive spin on the term today.

"How is that for a hot mess?" said Reese, after winding his kill switch cord around his reel handle while reeling in a 5-12 bass. The slight mishap didn't keep him from landing the fish, which allowed him to cull up to a conservatively estimated 22-0.

There is still a lot of time left to fish under what are proving to be ideal conditions for Reese - heavily overcast skies and occasional rain. The smallest two bass in his livewell weigh 3-4 and 4-0.
