McClelland sifting through shorts

Apr 6, 2014

Mike McClelland is having no trouble catching bass this morning, but landing a keeper is another story. He is catching 'em on almost every cast with a 4 1/2-inch swimbait near a boat dock in the Kimberling City area, but he has a total of two keepers out of the seven he's put in the boat. Make that eight. He just caught another one. A school of bass is apparently following a ball of shad.

KVD is excited

Apr 6, 2014

We're hearing lots of exited chatter between Kevin VanDam and his ESPN2 cameraman. And with good reason. This is his first top 12 in two years (March 2012 at Okeechobee) and his first big bass of the day since June 2012 (Toledo Bend). Thanks to Ken Duke for those numbers.    KVD ended Day 3 in 3rd place. He's got chance at a victory. Most great athletes are great closers. It's going to be fun to see if Kevin can close the deal today.

Davis is on 'em

Apr 6, 2014

Davis has added his third keeper, this one with a little more weight to it but not much more. Probably in the 2 1/2 pound range. He's still catching or getting on almost cast. And as soon as that's typed he catches his fourth. This one a line burner, just making the 15-inch minimum. That should give him four that is scaring the heck out of 7 pounds.

Davis has added his second keeper in the well, but he's caught five total.   Still looking for the big one that will make up for the lost ground yesterday.
