Davy Hite just made a move to the opposite side of the St. Johns River, and pulled out a push-pole to move through some aquatic vegetation and look for spawning beds.
Lane has caught one more but it was unclear if he culled with it. If he did, it was only an ounce or two. Right now he's doing a live interview talking about how his day is going. Can't hear the whole conversation. But you can on the War Room link.
We made a run to the northern edge of Lake George to find Dean Rojas. BassTrakk has him nearing twenty pounds for the day. He's working the northern side of what I believe is called Drayton Island. He's mixing it up, but doing some sight fishing. Photographer Darren Jacobson is hopping in the boat with him so I'll have more info soon. Dean's Marshal says he's caught about ten fish total including some nice 3-4 pounders.
There's a deer on the bank close to where David Walker is fishing. Not a great picture, but it's there. Other than that David Walker has 3 fish with with one being a 5-pounder. We are working an area all to ourselves and it loaded with beds. Walker said you have not been able to see these beds all week long. Photo by Bassmaster Marshal Zach Crabtree
The last entries to the Century Club were Keith Combs, Rick Clunn and John Crews at Falcon Lake in 2013.
Davy Hite said sunshine has made a difference for him every day this week, and it's a safe bet the other 11 finalists today would say the same thing. Hite is sight fishing when he has the ability to see, which he didn't have today until just now. The 10-2 he took big bass honors with Thursday came off a bed, as did the 8-pounder he caught yesterday.
Chris Lane moved to another pod of pads and immediately set the hook. It was a miss that produced a loud cry of agony. A moment after he said, "that's the aggressive bite I've been waiting on all morning."
