Klotz tells us that Mark Davis starts out drop shot fishing with one lure in the morning. Later in the day, he switches to another bait. It looks to be a small, wacky rigged sinking worm. Why he's doing this I don't know. I can't wait to find out why. Since this is the last day of the tournament, we are free to pass along that information. Stay tuned.
Even though Mark Davis has sacked more than 20 pounds of smallmouth bass for three straight days, there's no guarantee that he will catch his limit today. One of the illusions of bass tournament weigh-ins is that any Elite pro that brings a heavy sack to the scales culled through a slew of bass. Often, exactly the opposite is true, which is the case with Davis on Erie. He, obviously, has found some giant size smallies. But, he isn't on a big school of them.

Day 4 of the Plano Championship Chase is going to be especially exciting. We have a tight race, and several guys who will make or break an invite to the Classic based on how they do on Sunday. Most of the leaders will be making long runs into Canadian waters, and out of cell service range. That means some of our coverage may be delayed a bit-- including the blog updates and BassTrakk. That's the price we pay when we hold tournaments in some of the best, and most remote, fisheries in the world. Know that we'll get you the news as quickly as possible.
