Kelly Jordon wishes the sun would come out from behind the clouds and make his fish bite better. He also wishes the fish that do bite would hang on a little longer. He missed a 4-pounder a minute ago, and another good fish just now. "I also had two UFOs blow up on my bait. They might have been pike; I don't know," he said. "I keep checking my hooks, and they're sharp."
He may be a little distracted, watching Brandon Card catch bass after bass just a few yards away and on the opposite side of the rock fence. "Brandon must have caught 100 fish today," he said. I assume he's exaggerating. Jordon, Card and Pace each caught at least 13 pounds from this small area yesterday. Only Jordon remains in the hole now. He's plowing through the milfoil, hopping a white frog and getting frequent swirls and blow-ups, but nothing he can weigh.
