Young Harris with an early limit for 10-to-11 lbs. the first limit we've seen this morning out of the handful that I've stopped on. With a 14 inch limit, 10-11 lbs means no big ones yet for Young Harris. But an early limit definitely takes a little pressure off. Each 3-pound-plus fish that they can put in the boat will be a huge step.
So far we've seen Young Harris, UNCC, the Auburn team of Lee and Seals, MSU's Atkins and Gann and Georgia Southern all fishing within sight of one another and rotating through some of the same water. This lake is plenty big enough for the field, but it looks like certain areas are fishing better. And those areas are collecting a lot of boats. UNCC with one keeper and Young Harris with 3. Those are the only two teams I have a definite update on so far.
