Ace photographer James Overstreet and I have just motored up river from the Clinton Street Launch. We are following Aaron Martens, who is in first place in this tournament. There are seven spectator boats following Aaron Martens, not including ours. He's attracting a crowd this morning.The weather has been threatening all morning, but it's let up right now. We have seen a few lightning strikes in the sky, not too distant from where we are. It's6:40 a.m., but very dark out.
We'll stay on Aaron and see if his good luck continues into Day 3 of the Mississippi River Rumble.
