Lake Barkley is lining up to host a slugfest. Lance Freeman with Murray State Unversity said it took 20 pounds and change to win on the lake Saturday.
Ronnie Moore with East Carolina University said they will certainly need more size to have a chance this week on Lake Barkley. "At least the final day of practice has started better than the previous days."
The final day weigh-in gets underway for the 2015 Carhartt College Midwestern Regional presented by Bass Pro Shops.

Follow along with the Top 3 teams as the Top 20 head out on the Mississippi River for the final day of the 2015 Carhartt College Midwestern Regional presented by Bass Pro Shops.
Justin Brown and Brandon Bissell caught another keeper just over the 14-inch mark, took a long look at it, then tossed it back. That's keeper number three now that they've thrown back without filling their limit. Since Minnesota doesn't allow culling, they've been saving that 5th keeper slot for something a little bigger. Just a few minutes later, a 2-1/4-pounder chokes their frog and goes in the box. "Well, time to head to Wisconsin and see if we can get rid of them."
Northern Michigan just caught their fifth keeper of the morning, a 14-inch squeaker. After a short debate, they tossed it back in the water. Odd? Well, they're fishing in Minnesota where culling is not allowed. So if they put that fish in the box, they can go ahead and pick up the trolling motor and head out. Makes for an interesting day of fishing and complicates every decision. With four in the box of about 8-pounds, it's highly unlikely that the fish they released will cost them one of the top 13 qualifying spots.
