As noted, Chapman and Elias started in the same area, which had dirtied over the day of rest. Elias didn't do as well as Chapman afterward, though, and came back from Venice with 14-13.

"That was the muddiest water I've ever fished in my life," Elias said of his first stop, which is saying something, given that he's from Mississippi. "It looked terrible. It was terrible. I caught four there – two keepers and two throwbacks. I stayed another 30 minutes after Brent left and caught another on a spinnerbait. Then Bobby Lane was on my other spot. I saw him cull once and he left."

Elias said the water was so dirty that if you were waking a spinnerbait you still couldn't see the bait until it got to the boat.

He lost one fish – a 3 1/2-pounder. He culled once on the day and caught a total of six keepers.

About tomorrow, he said: "I'm not going into the muddy area. I've got one other spot where I may be able to catch a couple, but nowhere that I'd bank on. I really thought that to do well at Venice I'd need 18 pounds. So I feel like I'm 3 pounds out of where I need to be. I'm not that far out of it." Complete Story

Just a quick email to let you know how much I enjoyed my trip to Pachuta. As an avid angler I found In-Depth Fishing to be a master's level course in the sport of bass fishing.  I learned a great deal and it was fun to apply the lessons while catching lunker bass (see photos).  Lake Eddins is an extraordinary fishery!
