"I told you they'd start biting when (Mark) Zona left," shouted Brent Chapman as he landed a 5-pounder at 8:10 a.m.
That's more like what Chapman needs to hang on to his lead today. He's now got two bass in the boat that total about 6 1/2 pounds.
The largest field of anglers for any Bassmaster Classic was 61 in 2003 on the Louisiana Delta. Michael Iaconelli won that Classic.
