9:45 a.m. – Swindle meets up with his Toyota teammate Terry “Big Show” Scroggins. They agree to try a shallow, vegetation-rich, bay. Swindle casts a topwater frog stating, “One thing about northern largemouth is they ain’t afraid to hit a lure, I mean heck, they only see one about four months out of the year around here,” he jokes. However, none of the shallow largemouth are easily fooled, and soon Swindle’s intuition tells him to head back to find deeper smallmouth.
