Iaconelli just boated his fifth fish. It was about 1 1/2 pounds, so ideally he'd cull that one before the day is over, too. He appears more deliberate and energized now that his well is full. Now the quest for a pair of kickers is in full swing.
Iaconelli is in the midst of another dry spell. It's been a while since he's caught a fish, and the last one wasn't the caliber he needs to make a run at this. He needs another good keeper and then likely a 5-plus to do himself any favors. He's still dragging a football jig through brush.
See how Dean Rojas spent the final morning of the GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by GoPro.
Casey Ashley winning the Classic right here in his own backyard would be a great story, for sure. But Classic history says those great stories don't always come to fruition just because a lot of folks want them to. In 1997, a little-known angler named Dalton Bobo quit his job to fish the Classic on Logan Martin Lake in his home state because he was out of vacation time and his employer refused to allow him a leave of absence.
Powroznik finally caught a fish from this deep spot, but after working with his cull floats it didn't help him. He said it was 2 1/4 and his smallest was 2 1/2. He said he has 19 or 20 in the live well. A 5 would give him a huge boost.
Here are a few screenshots from Jacob Powroznik's GoPro this morning. These are not actual hi-resolution GoPro photos, since Powroznik's camera was set to video mode, but they do give us a glimpse into the spectacular morning that Powroznik had. Check back soon for video from Powroznik's morning.

It is starting to rain so Steve Bowman needs to protect his camera gear with a trash bag and duct tape. He sent my wife Hanna to the store last night to get the tape. She wanted to get him something manly like camo, stars and stripes or regular old silver/gray...but he insisted on this pink Hello Kitty tape.
Bobby Lane just caught two fish pretty quick and now BASSTrakk says he is in 2nd place with over 16 pounds. Stay tuned this is getting interesting.
