As seen from the Boat U.S. lead boat, B.A.S.S. Nation anglers prepare to launch on Okalahoma’s Lake Eufaula in the Central Divisional.
Robert DeGrafenreid from Oklahoma and his co angler Jeremy Dennienn from Kansas are excited to be the Day 2 Oklahoma leader as he sets out to try to retain his lead and become a 2-time national qualifier.

Day 2 weigh-in festivities are about to begin!
As G-Man would say, the gorilla is off the boat! The Arkansas boys have a limit.

Kansas B.A.S.S. Nation angler Beau Branine and his Day 2 co-angler Mark Boswell, of Nebraska, try to diagnose the problem that caused Branine’s trolling motor to quit working at about 10 a.m. today.
After conferring with Branine’s dad, David, who got on the phone and started trying to track down a replacement part, motor or boat, they pulled away from the dock at about 10:45, hoping to find some fish holding banks they could reach, drifting with the wind, until a better option becomes available.
Branine started Day 2 in 79th place; Boswell in 66th.
