We've been on Terry Scroggins. He's about 2 minutes from the take off. He's his usual jovial self. He's waiting on "Big Red," or in Scroggenese, he's waiting on the sun to start working his magic. In just the last couple minutes he's boated two smallmouth. One kept at 1 1/2 pounds, the other went back in the drink.
This will be an interesting day on several fronts. There's 1-pound separating the top three; 5-pounds separating the top 10 and just 6 between the whole lot of them. It's pretty much anyone's tourney to take. Casey Scanlon has the lead and the best shot at that. But anyone down the line that catches one of those big females could win. Thing is, if that were going to happen, there is no more likely time than right now.
Check out leader Greg Vinson's Day Three on the water.
Warmer weather and bass flooding into prime bedding areas signal potential for a very interesting Day Four.
Scanlon's lead not surprising; the upset was Days One and Two leader Greg Vinson's fall to 23rd place, knocking him out of the game.
Best lines heard at the Day Three weigh-in of the Ramada Quest.
