Watch Brett Hite culling up on Day 4 at Lake Seminole:
Brett Hite has caught most of his fish today on a green pumpkin Chatterbait. Earlier today he was fishing a black and blue Chatterbait. Be sure to read Steve Wright's excellent story on the 10th anniversary of the Chatterbait which ran earlier this week on Bassmaster.com.
When Brett Hite hooked his 8 pounder his first thought was, "I hope that's not a log." Brett had gotten snagged a couple time in this area. Photographer James Overstreet captured the joy on Brett's face when he realized he had a big fish. Look for that photo gallery on Bassmaster.com this afternoon. It will be full of epic shots.
Here's the latest from the War Room:
Watch Day 4 leader Brett Hite on the water here:
Brett Hite just landed a monster. This 8 pound bass allowed him to cull up 5 more pounds. We're estimating his bag to be in the 25 pound range now. Hite's reaction was awesome to watch. He hollered and raised his arms in the air. Are we watching the winning angler? Time
The wind is getting stronger and stronger. White caps are everywhere, and it's hard to be floating and shooting photos.
On Todd Faircloth now. It is getting windy on main lake and it is nasty, choppy water here. As soon as we got to him a picture moment came. Caught another 4-pounder and culled. He is too far and it is too windy so I can't talk to him at this distance. But he is having another great bag.
B.A.S.S. personnel are preparing for the worst, and it looks like the worst will be hitting here in Bainbridge at weigh-in time - 1 p.m. ET. According to the timeline on weather radar, we'll be in the thick of the storm as the weigh-in begins.
The main weigh-in stage has already been disassembled and stowed away. The smaller sound stage will be used for the weigh-in, just as it was at Falcon Lake on Day 4 last year, when a wind storm hit.
Every bassmaster.com feature, like First Look and Hooked Up, will probably occur in abbreviated form this afternoon.
