Faircloth struggling all morning but put together a small limit early. He's now hitting his stride and has culled everything he had from the morning in the last hour. Faircloth made the long run to the middle of Big Bay de Noc this morning. Now he's fishing in 4-to-5-feet swells using a drop shot and mixing a tube in. Hard to say what Faircloth has now because our eyes and ears, Steve Bowman, is out of ear shot from Faircloth the way the wind is blowing. But Bowman puts Faircloth at 16 pounds minimum. BassTrakk has Hackney at 17-ish. If Faircloth keeps his pace up of a fish per cast things could get interesting. This is going to come down to the wire.
