BASSTrakk currently shows Brian Snowden in second place. Snowden is from this region and has loads of experience fishing Ozark Mountain lakes. Many of the pros predicted that he would be a contender here. They were right.
Although it is warmer this morning, the breeze is keeping all the pros, writers, photographers, observers and boat drivers bundled up. Thank goodness for wind-blocking rain gear. It's more important to fishing success than your favorite rod and reel.
