Appropriately, on a day when a Bassmaster Elite Series pro will earn a $100,000 first-place check, the sky over Lake Okeechobee was decorated with a rainbow during the 7:30 a.m. takeoff.
Leader Ish Monroe and Chris Lane, who trails by only 10 ounces going into the final day, appear to be the most likely candidates to end up with the pot of gold at the end of the day.
There were some dark clouds on the horizon, prompting Monroe to joke, "Cancel the tournament. There's a 100 percent chance of tornadoes. Cancel the tournament."
Monroe, after leading by over 13 pounds going into Saturday's competition, now knows he's got a battle on his hands.
The weather isn't likely to be a factor today. And several anglers predicted the bass would bite better than they have the last three days with some cloud cover today.
James Overstreet and I are on our way to Harney Canal to launch our boat, then make a beeline to Chris Lane.
