In becoming the first angler to win consecutive Elite events, Edwin Evers also joined an elite crowd of five with double-digit victories.
Kevin Ledoux fishes on Day 4 of the Evan Williams Bourbon Bassmaster Elite at St. Lawrence River
We just left Edwin Evers. He's busting it back to check in and we peeled off for the Coles Creek ramp. BassTrakk shows Evers holding the lead by more than 2 pounds. But we all know the BassTrakk numbers are subject to error and sandbaggers. Evers was fishing like he believed he hadn't held onto the lead, and appeared frustrated when he last pulled out. If he does lose it's not because of anything he did today. He fished very hard and the fishing was tougher on many of the guys here on Championship Sunday.
Love the fishing stories I'm hearing from the kiddos at @BerkExpTrailer here at St. Lawrence River. @BASS_nation pic.twitter.com/mYyUZffBy4 — Gary Klein (@garyklein15) August 2, 2015
Edwin Evers has returned to the spot where he lost a 4- or 5-pounder first thing yesterday morning. It's seven minutes before 3 p.m. so this is likely his last stop of the day. No doubt Evers wants another shot at that big fish.
I've got Kevin Ledoux's wife in the boat. She flew all night from Oklahoma to cheer him on. In the last 20 minutes, Ledoux has culled up twice and lost another good one. He said he has seen several other "good ones" around. Update by Brandon Palaniuk
Edwin Evers just made a 10-minute run back to the Long Sault Dam. He finally gave up on the two "giants" mentioned in my last post. This is the same spot where Evers caught a 3- and 4-pounder at the end of his day yesterday. No doubt Evers is hoping for the same kind of magic today.
