More anglers catching a limit in 2012

The fishing has been so good at the Elite tournaments this year that 29 anglers have caught a five bass limit every day they've competed. And with Lake Michigan and Oneida left on the schedule, it looks like most of them will continue that streak.

 

It's pretty rare for even one angler to limit every day for an entire season. Only six have done it before — Jeff Kriet (2007), Todd Faircloth (2008), Tim Horton (2008), Bobby Lane (2008), Michael Iaconelli (2010) and Peter Thliveros (2010).

 

One counterpoint of this year's "easier" fishing is that the bass have been smaller than in any previous Elite season.
