Timing off for Martin

“My timing was off today,” said Martin. “I had a decent limit today, but should’ve weighed more. By timing I mean I fished my flipping bite early like I have been, but it was cloudy and I fished my moving baits later when it was brighter. I should’ve done it the other way. I kind of panicked.

“Things are warming up. I have a lot more confidence and the pressure is off. Last night I hardly slept and I didn’t feel right today. Tonight I will rest and have a good dinner. My goal was to get a check and I am going into the third day in the Top 5.”

Martin sits in 3rd heading into tomorrow with a 2-day total of 45-pounds 5-ounces after weighing an 18-pound 9-ounce limit.

Grigsby Stages Comeback

After catching 4 bass for 12-pounds 10-ounces, Chad Grigsby of Maple Grove, MN more than doubled that weight today with a limit weighing 25-pounds 11-ounces. After a few botched attempts yesterday Grigsby certainly had it together today.

“Everything went wrong yesterday,” said Grigsby. “Everything went right today. I slowed down and caught ’em good. At the end of the day I caught a 7-pounder that allowed me to cull out a smaller fish.”

Grigsby is in 4th with 38-pounds 5-ounces.
