Walters now one away from limit

It was with little pageantry that Patrick Walters boat flipped keeper number three in the boat. After all, that fish was only about 3 pounds ... hardly notable after the 9-1 that kickstarted his day. Number four, however, was a different story. Crouching near his outboard to belly land the fish, the bread-loaf body of the largemouth proved, even from a distance, that this was a different class of fish. “Ahhhhh!!!” Walters yelled. His fourth keeper weighed 5-1. The clock has not yet struck 8 a.m. and the South Carolina pro already has around 17 pounds to his credit with only four fish.
