Young fishing fans are so important to the sport of bass fishing. This week at Pickwick I had the pleasure of talking to one every night at our hotel. He asked me all kinds of questions and wanted to take a picture with me. It was truly an awesome week. Not only did I qualify for the championship with my partner and buddy Mike Corbishley, but I also made a new friend in Trevor. Thank you B.A.S.S. for an outstanding college program.

AUM is struggling with three for 7 pounds. UNA is up 21 now.
They started the day in second place, but Ross and Swims of Bethel have had a rough morning so far. They have a limit but, with the exception of their 6-pound kicker, they are all small keepers. This puts them at 12 pounds or so.
Atkins and Marty hold up a couple for their lady friends to see on the blog.
"Wish we had a few more of these. Not on much but was a good way to start the morning." - Dylan Powley, UT Martin
Justin Atkins and Joseph Marty of Mississippi State have a limit for about 14 pounds. They started the day in 4th, about 6 pounds back.
