Currently it would be easy to say Zaldain made the big run for virtually nothing. For more than hour he’s gone without a bite. But in the last 20 minutes he’s had two. The first was one of the smallest smallmouth bass we’ve seen go into a livewell. You could see Zaldain mulling on whether to keep it or not. He knows he will likely have to cull it before the day is over if he wants to win. But several strange things have happened this week, so it’s likely he kept it out of caution. A few minutes ago, he added a 2 pounder. He’s not setting the world on fire. But he didn’t yesterday until late.
