We just got in close enough to speak with Alton Jones, who told us he has a 3-pounder in the livewell. It was caught about 8:45, and Jones considers that a bonus because he hasn't been catching much early.
"I was just blind fishing," Jones said. "I saw a hole in the grass and just pitched in there."
He caught it on a Yum Dinger and he's also using a finesse worm.
