Alton Jones finally worked his way back to us, where we could have a brief conversation. He estimates his weight at "12 pounds and change."
"I've got a 3 1/2 and a 3 I want to keep and these other three I hope to get rid of," he said.
He is alternating between a 6-inch Yum Dinger and a Yum tube, but he thinks most of his fish in the livewell have come on the Dinger.
After Jones passed us, heading back near the entrance to this shallow flat, he missed a three-pounder and landed a dink. He thinks the water is coming up, and, if so, some new fish could be moving into the entrance.
