Heating up

It's the final day of competition and it could get interesting. Today's high will reach 70 degrees and the sun will make it feel even warmer, following the deep freeze of the past two days.


Leader Randy Allen has a 10-pound lead. Late yesterday Stephen Browning came in yesterday with a 20-pound sack. There were other big fish caught late as well. So who knows what might unfold.


We'll be following Allen this morning so stayed tuned.

A ray of sunshine

Morning clouds have begun to break up. Conditions are changing. Still cool with the temps hovering in the upper 40's. This will fit into the hands of some of the competitors and squash the bite for others. It should be an interesting afternoon at the scales.

Team Brooks!
