The leaderboard shows just how good these Elite guys are. The fish aren’t huge but limits are still being caught.

One ounce cost Chris Zaldain $10,000 the last time the Elite Series came to the Sabine River. In 2013, when the 100-man field was cut to the top 50 after two days, Zaldain finished 51st, one ounce behind Billy McGaghren's two-day total of 10 pounds even.
Paul Elias catches No. 3. Update by Bassmaster Marshal Bill Lee
Right now Chris Lane is fishing with a new bait he developed with Luck-E-Strike. It's called the Drop Dead Craw, a soft plastic, and it's not on the market yet. Well, as I was typing this post Chris caught a POW worthy fish on this new bait. It's at least a 3 pounder. Maybe 4. That gives him at least 11-and-a-half pounds so far today.
