Chris Zaldain caught one 3-pounder on his starting area, where he caught many of his big bass the past two days.
But he abandoned the deep ledge barely more than an hour after his first cast. Yesterday he was getting bites on every cast, even if he didn’t hook up, but something obviously has changed.
Zaldain made several stops on the ledge to graph, but never put his trolling motor down. He’s now within sight of the launch, several hundred yards from Day 2 leader Jeff “Gussy” Gustafson and David Mullins.
