There's an unofficial etiquette on the Elite Series: Those anglers who are far enough down in the standings that they have no shot at winning are supposed to give space to those in contention. Rick Morris isn't doing that today, and Aaron Martens is unhappy about it.
They've had a few verbal exchanges since we've been here, but we couldn't hear the details. A pair of observers who have been here from the start said Martens was here five minutes before anyone else reached Little Sturgeon Bay this morning. When Morris arrived, they described the conversation between the two anglers as "heated."
They saw Martens catch a 3 1/2-pounder before we got here. We haven't seen either angler catch a keeper.
