After finishing a disappointing second in a tournament last weekend, UWSP's Mark Hugus and Cody Hahner didn't come to the Lake of the Ozarks to qualify for the national championship -- they came to win.

Wisconsin Stevens Point's Cody and Mark have now started culling. Pressure's building for the rest of the field.
The sun is officially out for Wisconsin Stevens Point. The bite should be coming soon. A few non-keepers in the last 30 minutes.
We've been with leaders Cody and Mark all morning. Two keeper bites so far but one was a solid 4. The only problem? That 4-pounder came unbuttoned. "It was a bonus bite anyways," said Cody. "Don't let it bother you, Mark." It was a "bonus bite" because it came early in the morning. Most of WSP's 19-10 on day 1 came after 1 p.m. yesterday. With sun already out, there's a good chance the bite will pickup before 1 p.m. today. For now they're a little frustrated, but not worried... yet.
44-degree water and 37-degree air temperature doesn't stop this college angler from going in head first to put his plug in. Brrrr.......
