Not long ago, Caleb Sumrall stopped to chat with Jamie Hartman along the grassline Hartman was working. When finding out that Hartman planned to fish ahead of him, where Sumrall also wanted to fish, Sumrall moved on.
After action slowed with Hartman, I decided to see what Sumrall was doing. He had moved a mile or so upriver from Hartman and into a broad, shallow bay off the main channel. He is fishing scattered patches of weeds, and it is working.
I saw him catch a small fish and throw it back, but he upgraded his catch enough to move into fourth place overall with 72 pounds, 5 ounces.
