Cherry on top


Hank Cherry has moved to the top of the BASSTrakk standings.


From what we know of Brandon Palaniuk’s catch, we don’t think Cherry is actually in the lead, but I wanted to be the first one to use that headline. Cherry started today almost 12 pounds behind Cliff Pace. Twelve pounds is a decent day’s worth of bass in this tournament.


If Pace can’t find a bite, one angler is going to be shocked at the weigh-in tonight, and a large group of anglers will be kicking themselves over what could have been. A lot of anglers who thought they needed 25 pounds might only end up needing 19.
