Another one for Zaldain. Update by Bassmaster Marshal Jeff Jones
Looking at the map the anglers are spread out decently where everyone has some space, but there have been some key areas where anglers are tight together though. It will be interesting to see how some of the more pressured areas can stack up throughout the week and how many people can survive with numerous good anglers around.
Several of the anglers who ventured the furthest from the Sacramento launch site are refueling in preparation for the long ride back, according to photographer James Overstreet. The first flight check-in time at Discovery Park is 3:20 p.m.

Cliff Pirch told our photographers that he saw an 8 pounder and a 5 pounder swimming around in his area and that he just needed the tide to get right to probably catch them. About an hour or so after saying that he caught the 8 pounder. After putting together a very good bag throughout the day, Pirch just enhanced his bag big time by putting a 6 1/2 pounder in the livewell. He is now up to 24 pounds and unofficially on top of the leaderboard. Quite a big jump for Pirch so far.
Britt Myers hauled in a 7-plus pounder just moments ago, and now he too has above 20 pounds unofficially. Right now six anglers have roughly 20 pounds. Those being: Cliff Pirch, Keith Combs, Chris Zaldain, Kevin VanDam, David Walker and Britt Myers. Tommy Biffle isn't far behind at 19 pounds.
Dennis Tietje has a nice cull with a 6 pounder. Update by Bassmaster Marshal Michael Faught
