The hot spot

That’s Clay Phillips handing his co-angler a 7-pound plus fish.

The two were fishing nearby as I worked up a gallery on Keith Combs. During that process I continued to hear yelling and screaming from a boat several hundred yards away.

That yelling was from Phillips who had caught an 8-pounder and a few more quality fish on his way to quickly building a 20-pound plus stringer.

As I trolled closer the co-angler got into the act. Don’t have his name yet, but evidently they are on a hot spot.

Phillips had 9 pounds yesterday and needs another big one to ensure another day in this event.
