The Monkey Island, Okla., pro caught both shallow and deep fish today.
“I am just covering a ton of water,” he said. “That is the key to it because the fish are so scattered out. I can catch one here and one there, and then it is three hours without a bite. I probably caught only seven or eight keepers, but it was just a tremendous grind. I caught my big one (a 6-pounder) on the last cast I made. ”
The biggest bass of the day was weighed in by Cypress, Texas, pro James Kiser, who had a 6-15 largemouth. The fish bolstered his 19-10 limit of largemouth, helping him move into second place.
