Shaye Baker of Reeltown, Ala., moved up to fifth place with two-day total of 33 pounds, 14 ounces.

Baker, who is a freelance writer and on-the-water reporter for FLW Outdoors, is backing up his pen and camera with a rod and reel this week at Lake Seminole.

His ticket on day one was a blistering shad-spawn bite early in the morning. Today, however, his shad-spawn bite waned and he had to adapt with a topwater.

“The key lure on the shad-spawn place is a homemade spinnerbait,” Baker said. “And when I go down the lake I’m throwing a Jackall Bowstick topwater. Yesterday I didn’t have to go way down into the lake, but today when my shad-spawn spot died, I went down there with the Bowstick and it really saved me with a 4-pounder and two 3-pounders.”
