2012 Elite Series St. Johns River Showdown St. Johns River - Palatka, FL, Mar 15 - 18, 2012

Skeet Reese lands 4-pounder

8:56 am EDT, Mar 18, 2012 | By Hank Weldon

 Some morning action is starting to happen.  Skeet Reese has jumped up into third with a four pounder.  That gives him a total of 55-01, seven pounds behind our leader, Alton Jones. One thing I will point out again, Skeet was the only angler who went North.  If the fishing gets hot up there, he will have it to himself.

 

At takeoff this morning Skeet teased the crowd with about his "Secret Berkley Havoc bait" that he will reveal on stage. Be sure to tune in to our live weigh-in @ 4:00 p.m. ET to find out his secret lure. He also talked about fishing for points today to position himself for the the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year title.

 

People talked about how Skeet had a bad season in 2011. That is true, but he did have a 13th place finish at last year's finale on Wheeler.  Keeping with that "momentum", he is starting his 2012 campaign out on the right track.
