Mark Davis is starting where he began his day Thursday. Steve Bowman and I had a considerably easier time finding him today. There was no fog and considerably less smoke on the water, but the smoke from a controlled burn appears to be increasing by the minute. Davis signaled that he's caught three today, and he's making a short move to another spot.
We're operating a bit short-handed. Our new bassin' buds aren't here. We met Blake Rambin and Trent James on the lake yesterday - two avid bass fishermen from Port Arthur, Texas, who had a day off and wanted to spend it watching the Elite Series pros. They volunteered to be an extra set of eyes for us in the limited visibility, and did a great job of calling and text messaging to let us know who-was-where and what they were catching.
They are another testament to the number of really good people who follow this sport with a passion. Work and fishing tournaments will prevent their return to Toledo Bend this week, but they'll definitely be following this blog. Miss you, guys, and thanks for the help.
