Does Starks have enough?

You've got to like Britt Myers's chances here. Not only does he have a big lead going into this last round, but 65 percent of Day 3 leaders in the Elite Series go on to win. His chances are probably more like 95 percent because Douglas simply doesn't produce many really big bass. So far, the biggest is Byron Velvick's 6-10 from Day 2. Without really big bass, it's tough to mount a comeback in a tournament like this. It's much easier to make a comeback in a slugfest like we've seen on Falcon, Clear, the California Delta or Okeechobee where a 30-pound catch is possible. Even though Jeremy Starks has said he thinks he can catch 25 pounds today, saying it and doing it when you need it are two very different things.
