Swindle is stuck on five

We're still camped on Gerald Swindle, who has slipped from second to 10th on the BASSTrakk leaderboard. He is working a thick weedbed overtopped with a carpet of duckweed. He has not been able to upgrade his limit since leaving the small pocket where his first five bass came from.

This location is a popular spot, and a productive one. We can see Elite pros in every direction down the bank and across the way, and several are on fish. Tommy Biffle, winner here in 2013, added two to his livewell just a few yards away from where Swindle is fishing.

With only a northern pike to show for his efforts, Swindle pulled up his trolling motor and headed farther up the tributary.
