Back on his open water spot. He has two keepers so far. No size to them.
James Overstreet and I are following the leader Brett Hite today. He's fishing near the dam. Hite has started day 4 about like he ended day 3-- and that is catching big bass. He has already reeled in two big fish. We're estimating them to be about four pounds each. Brett is clearly fired up, pumping his fist and hollering with each fish. Three boats with early morning spectators have responded with cheers and claps.
Davis has his limit. He looks to have boated two more in the 3 pound range. He is a good distance away from me off the Flint river. We don't want it get to close and disrupt his water.
Brett Hite had only three fish weighing a total of 5 pounds at 1 p.m. yesterday. Granted, that was the first day he hadn't caught his fish early, and he still finished with 26 pounds. And this is a different day, with wind and clouds, unlike the high skies and dead calm that perplexed him most of yesterday.
Mark Davis caught two quick fish as we pulled up on him. One 1 1/2-pounder and the other about 3 pounds. The wind has started to blow. He will have to deal with the weather and a shortened Day 4.
There's a storm front coming through Lake Seminole about 2:00 p.m. ET today, strong enough that Tournament Director Trip Weldon has the 12 finalists coming off the water early today, with check in time of 1:00 p.m. Stay tuned for more details all day long.
Nothing is certain on a lake as productive as Lake Seminole.
