Jordan Lee has culled twice in the last 10 minutes, first to gain ounces, and just now to replace a 3 1/2 with a 5 1/2. Late charge!

DeFoe hump jumpin'

Feb 23, 2014

The ticking of the clock grows louder in DeFoe's ear. He's jumping quickly from one hump to another, spending only 5 to 10 minutes on each spot. He knows he needs one more good fish to have a shot at winning. He has one small bass he just has to get rid of. Time is running short, but it only takes a minute to land a big bass. Can he do it? Time will tell.

Tharp finally with a limit

Feb 23, 2014

While fishing a stretch of riprap directly under some bridge-bound spectators, Tharp hooked and landed another keeper, which should make five. The fish ate as he paused the bait, and Tharp seemed as surprised as anyone by the bite. Still probably needs to cull up.

Edwin Evers just moved back out to a spot where he missed a couple of fish earlier today. He'll have to bug out soon, so he better make every cast count.

Faircloth quiet

Feb 23, 2014

Faircloth has been relatively quiet since we left. He’s alternating between a red craw Red Eye Shad and a Strike King Rage Blade, which is a ChatterBait style bladed jig. With about 25 pounds in the well, he’s roughly 2 pounds off the pace. With about 30 minutes left, he’s going to need another big bite to jump into the lead, not unlike several other competitors.
