I caught up with Ross and Swims a little further down the lake. They have two fish so far, one over 6 pounds. Reports from the boats that are following them tell me they just lost a giant.
Swims and Ross for Bethel caught their 24 plus yesterday on what they deemed the biggest community hole on the lake. Looks like they were right. This is a shot of that spot today and no, Bethel is not in that mix.
UNA's Young and Lenz off to a big start. 18 in the box including a 7-pounder and 2-pounder. I mention the 2-pounder because that gives them a lot of room to cull up. Another 7 and they're in the 23-pound range. Some think that could be enough today. I haven't seen the leaders yet, though, and that 27-5 they had yesterday is going to be hard to overcome.
Teams from AUM and Clemson vie for the same waters shortly after launch.
ECU's Ronnie Moore and Mike Corbishley are ready for Day 2 launch.
"We made it! East Carolina team of Ronnie Moore and Mike Corbishley are parking for the weigh-in."

Ross and Swims of Bethel University had about as much fun as you're legally allowed to have this morning. They bagged a limit worth 22 pounds before 7:45 and that included this 7-plus Tennessee River stud.
