John Crews just set the hook on what was likely the first keeper for these finalists. But about the time he got it near the boat, the fish jumped off. It was about 3-pounds and didn't faze Crews a bit.
"No damage done if I really want to do some damage," he said.
Crews knows if he plans on jumping up the ladder the 6-pounders and bigger will be the ones he has to have.
