DeFoe hump jumpin'

Feb 23, 2014

The ticking of the clock grows louder in DeFoe's ear. He's jumping quickly from one hump to another, spending only 5 to 10 minutes on each spot. He knows he needs one more good fish to have a shot at winning. He has one small bass he just has to get rid of. Time is running short, but it only takes a minute to land a big bass. Can he do it? Time will tell.

Tharp finally with a limit

Feb 23, 2014

While fishing a stretch of riprap directly under some bridge-bound spectators, Tharp hooked and landed another keeper, which should make five. The fish ate as he paused the bait, and Tharp seemed as surprised as anyone by the bite. Still probably needs to cull up.

Time's running out for Evers

Feb 23, 2014

Edwin Evers just moved back out to a spot where he missed a couple of fish earlier today. He'll have to bug out soon, so he better make every cast count.

Faircloth quiet

Feb 23, 2014

Faircloth has been relatively quiet since we left. He’s alternating between a red craw Red Eye Shad and a Strike King Rage Blade, which is a ChatterBait style bladed jig. With about 25 pounds in the well, he’s roughly 2 pounds off the pace. With about 30 minutes left, he’s going to need another big bite to jump into the lead, not unlike several other competitors.

Tharp needs a big bite

Feb 23, 2014

After hitting one more spot in Seibold Creek without a bite, Tharp sped downlake to a spot we haven't seen him fish during the tournament -- although it's not far from where we found him early on Wednesday's practice day. It's exposed to a lot of boat wakes. With an hour to go he needs a big bite.

Another move for Evers

Feb 23, 2014

It's back to one of the early-morning spots for Edwin Evers. He just ran to the back of the creek that produced his biggest fish of today's early stages. The wind is picking up a little more and blowing straight into this creek. We're figuring Evers has until 2:15 CT before he needs to head back to the takeout. The clock is ticking, and Evers needs to engineer a late scoring drive to win this thing. In this case, late scoring drive means a 6-pounder or better.

Pros make final charge on Lake G

Faircloth has about 25 pounds

Feb 23, 2014

Faircloth is south of South Sauty Creek at the moment and has roughly 25 pounds in the boat. He’s got his Power-Poles down to slow his drift; the wind is blowing from the southwest at the moment, pushing him up the lake. He’s working what I’d guess is a Strike King Red Eye Shad and is keeping a close eye on his electronics, supposedly throwing up to a small submerged island.
