Rook breaks one off

10:29 am EDT, Aug 26, 2012 | By Jim Sexton

Scott Rook just lost a fish and threw his rod down. We're not sure if the fish came unbuttoned or if his line got cut like it did two times yesterday about this time.

 

Rook told me last night that he's pulling his fish over a rockpile. He believes zebra mussels are cutting his line (the sharp edges of the shell). He was still frustrated about losing the fish yesterday. In a tournament as tight as this one, those fish may have put him in the lead.
