Photographer James Overstreet and I have joined a dozen other boats with observers of Day Two leader Brent Chapman. He already had one bass in the livewell and we saw him add another at 6:55. Neither is much more than a keeper.
But Overstreet has spent time observing Chapman each of the last two days, and he reports Chapman has been whacking bass all day long.
Chapman mentioned at the weigh-in yesterday that the thermocline in this area is right at 30 feet deep and the bass are holding as close to it as possible.
