Trevor Lo retying after an impressive flurry

1:41 pm EDT, Jul 14, 2015
Lo nearly lost his only keeper due to it jumping out of the livewell, then lost a giant smallmouth at the boat and bounced right back to put keepers number two and three in the livewell. All in about 5 minutes.
Bensema still with one. Now Bensema's one is a better quality fish than what Lo has, but alone it's not nearly enough to beat Lo's three. The ball is back in Bensema's court now.  

A wild couple of minutes!

Trevor Lo just experienced a terrifying - and exciting - two minutes on the water.

Slow, not steady

The Final Round of the College Bassmaster Classic Bracket has been the epitome of a grind so far. In what is shaping up to be one of the toughest days in Carhartt Bassmaster College Series history, both Josh Bensema and Trevor Lo are stuck on one keeper, Bensema's outweighing Lo's. Several anglers have had more luck later in the day this week so both could still fill out their limit. But for now, it looks like one more bite could win it for either side. 

It's a close one...

Final session of therapy

12:43 pm EDT, Jul 14, 2015

ECU's Zach Blalock and Mike Corbishley made a final stop at Lake Chatuge. Screaming drags and big spots were on the hit list today!

Bensema has unofficial lead

11:40 am EDT, Jul 14, 2015

Josh Bensema unofficially leads a close match-up with Trevor Lo. Both have one keeper in the boat as of 10:15. Lo's keeper just made it across the 14-inch mark. Bensema's keeper never went on the board since it was around 2-1/2 pounds. Both have caught several non-keepers. Over halfway through the day and this is what we thought it would be, a grind fest where any cast could send one of these anglers to the Bassmaster Classic.

5:12 pm EDT, Jul 13, 2015

ECU's Zach Blalock and Mike Corbishley decided a little more therapy was in order before heading home. Stopped in to Florence, AL to meet up with UNA's Dawson Lenz and Andrew Tate for a second session on Wilson Lake.
