my buddy Gray made the drive up from ATL to fish the monday evening derby with me, i felt bad that he fought the traffic to get here and we didnt catch a  single keeper! we fished the back thirds of spawning pockets with a wake bait(me) while he fished a jig around. we caught 3-4 short fish during tournament hours. decided to stay out a little longer and fish another stretch. i caught one more short and lost one the might have been a keeper on a chatterbait. didnt hear what it took to win but there was an 8+ weighed in.
