After looking for the team of Noah Pescitelli and Thomas Zaczek for part of the morning, we found them! They are struggling though with only one fish so far. They are making a spot change to try and catch a couple late day fish. They were 5th coming into today, well inside the cut.

The Florida team of Tomlinson and Cook were just outside the Top 10 yesterday, but Kentucky Lake hasn't yielded any fish to the anglers today. However, that doesn't mean that they are giving up anytime soon.
Tomlinson yelled over and said, "You know us. We will be fine. Going to grind it out all day."
That's the attitude these high schoolers are supposed to have. If you didn't have to work hard to be successful then more teams would be doing well. This is the championship, and these are the best anglers at the high school level. I have no doubt that some of these teams will get a good bite going after their halftime break.
