Pocket hopping

After fishing a pocket twice, Faircloth hops to a fresh pocket. Two honking Canada Geese fly in to join him. He must be infringing on their territory. Faircloth hooks and lands one on a white buzzbait. This one is short of 14 inches, too, the minimum size here. Faircloth releases the bass.


The bass was short but maybe it told Faircloth that the buzzbait is the deal.


The water here in Beech Creek has more color than anything I've seen elsewhere during this tournament
