Go on the Mississippi with Rumble champion Tommy Biffle!
Victory at the Rumble wasn't easy for the veteran pro, but Biffle made decisions that turned into a $100,000 payday and Classic berth.

Aaron Martens finished second to Tommy Biffle on the Mighty Miss, weighing in a four-day total of 61 pounds, 11 ounces.

Aaron Martens caught another non-keeper at 2:55. I've got 2:57 now and he's hooked another one. It wasn't a bass. He's done.
I promise there's no attempt to create any false drama here, but we may have overestimated Aaron Martens' weight today. He just caught a fish that was smaller than anything we thought he had in his livewell. Then he took it back and put it on the balance beam with one of his other fish. Instead of cookie-cutter 2 3/4-pounders, like we thought he had before upgrading with that 4-pounde earlier, he may have had a 2-pounder in there.
The waning moments of the Mississippi River Rumble are upon us.
If you want to watch Aaron Martens fish, you can join the bank observers behind Black's Cove, next to the KFC on Rose Street. That's his latest move, from the middle of Black River to the docks here. He hasn't set the hook in a while now.
One more fish for Biffle, but not a keeper. He continues to plug away on this small spot just off the Mississippi.
