Faircloth has worked his way around the back of a pocket. We got a better look at his topwater bait through Jacobson's long telephoto lens. It is a small popper.
Faircloth pauses at another isolated dock and works it over with a small bait on a spinning outfit. No takers. He is calmly chatting with the cameraman shooting video footage from the back deck.
If Faircloth knew that BASSTrakk has Pete Ponds with two bass, Aaron Martens with two and Cliff Pace with three, he might feel more urgent. One of the two spectator boats just left. Maybe he learned that some of the other pros were having better luck early.
Jacobson tells me that Faircloth caught only six bass yesterday. He's grinding them out.
