As close as possible

Josh Bensema of Texas A&M has worked his way as far north as he can, fishing in the strong current coming from Lake DuBay Dam. The boat icon at the bottom of the photo shows where Bensema is now trying to win a berth to the Bassmaster Classic. The waypoint near the top of the screen is near where Besema and McArdle won the National Championship just two days ago. So far so good for Bensema. He has  two solid fish in the boat for about 5-pounds. 

Lo weighs all four fish

Trevor Lo is culling now. Lo pulled all four fish out and got a weight on each one so he would know which to cull now and which should go back next. Looked like he had around 5-1/2 pounds. Lo is going up against Jake Whitaker today who has had much slower morning with only one keeper as of 8 o'clock. But these match-ups today will go down to the wire. There are several 3-to-4-pound fish to be caught here. Most anglers had a big opportunity yesterday but unfortunately squandered it including Josh Bensema who had three fish for 12-pounds on in 15 minutes and lost all of them. It's going to be an interesting day.
