The 50 remaining professional anglers took advantage of the conditions — landing sacks of fish so large that eight men are more than half way to breaking the record for a four-day weight total in BASS history.
The observer whose pro caught the biggest bass of the tournament on day two of competition won a brand new Triton TR186 bass boat.
Mark Perry and Chad Tregellas said they anticipated weights would be down from Day One, but they didn't think only 15 anglers would eclipse 10 pounds.
Michael Iaconelli began the Bassmaster Memorial by fishing a number of patterns and he met mixed results.
