Has Randall Tharp made the key adjustment he predicted yesterday he’d need to win?
“The water’s warmed up six degrees, they should be biting better than they are,” Tharp told 2010 Classic Runner-up Jeff Kriet in a “Take Out Live” webcast interview, minutes after he came off the water on Day 2. “And they are biting somewhere, I just have to make the right adjustments to win this tournament tomorrow.”
After going more than half the day with only two bass in his livewell, Tharp might have made the adjustment he needed – BassTrakk indicates he recently moved back into second place, unofficially, after boating his third and fourth fish of the day, for an estimated 15 pounds, 5 ounces – 3 pounds, 12 ounces behind unofficial leader Randy Howell.
“The Randall Tharp adjustment right there, catching two more fish, getting him near 15 pounds – [that’s] absolutey enormous!” Mark Zona said minutes ago, reacting to the news on the “War Room” live webcast.
This Classic just keeps getting curiouser and curiouser …
