Picking up the Pace to take lead

It happened again. As soon as I hit publish, Cliff Pace lands a 4-1/2 fish and another 2-pounder to climb over Ike into the lead of this here derby.


Pace had been stuck on three fish and 9 pounds, then bam, he's atop the BASSTrakk standings after catching what must be a donkey. Pace is listed with 36-5, 14-13 coming today.


Ike is 1-13 back and dealing with switching boats after his trolling motor went kaput. Ike reportedly dog-cursed a dog barking from the shore, so he's upset.


The afternoon bite must be on, and Ike could be missing some of it.
