At Friday's weigh-in, Greg Hackney noted that he didn't have one big fish, they all looked like "litter mates.” Well he's got three 4-pounds-plus litter mates at 7:40 this morning. A southerly wind is blowing across this area a little stronger than anything the previous two days, but it's obviously not bothering Hackney. We figure he's got about 12 1/2 pounds now.
Edwin Evers finds his first fish after a short run south from where he started. It's not a big one, but it will keep. He told us he was only going 100 yards south, but it was more like 500. Edwin Evers is a world-class fisherman but in my opinion a poor judge of distance.

Day 3 gets underway for the A.R.E. Truck Caps Bassmaster Elite at Cayuga Lake.
Todd Faircloth started off hot this morning as he already has a limit for roughly 15 pounds. Of course, he unofficially took over the lead, but Hackney has two fish for about 7 pounds so he is starting fast as well.
