Luke Ferguson and Wesley Wise of Polk State College have three good ones, probably around 9 pounds. "It's been pretty slow," said Ferguson.
Trent Newman and Jacob Sepeda of Dallas Baptist are culling. And one of the bass is a good one.
Taylor Minick and Landon Tucker of Valdosta State University have one in the boat. That's one more than they weighed in yesterday. The pair have had their fill and are moving on.
Nick LaDart and Brian Eaton of University of Louisiana Monroe only have one fish so far. The bass obviously don't want to make an appearance on the ESPN cameras.

Day 2 begins and college teams are searching for some championship fish.
The sun has finally broken through. That wasn't supposed to happen ... all week according to the forecast. But it has and that's what over half the field begged for during weigh-in yesterday. Let's see if it makes a difference. Number 5 for Bethel's Parker and Roberts. And number 6. Back to back keepers within 5 minutes of the sun popping out from behind the clouds. May be a coincidence. But considering they spent the last 30 minutes biteless, probably not.
Parker and Roberts of Bethel have four fish this morning — three babies and one decent one, according to Parker.
