Mark Menendez is making a move, climbing from 19th to eighth in the latest, greatest, but very unofficial BASSTrakk standings.
The veteran angler from Paducah, Ky.., is listed with a limit weighing a little over 12 pounds.
Menendez has relied on a big bite each day, and as evidenced in the photo sent in by his Marshal, Clint Long of Missouri, has another nice fish to his credit.
He'd love to get his 21st Top 10 finish in B.A.S.S., but will have to keep the pressure on.
A top 12 here would help him climb in the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year standings. He started the TroKar Quest in 64th, and if he can fish Sunday, should move up in the points.
