Day Two leader Kelly Jordon caught a small keeper around 9 Saturday morning, then released it a few minutes later. But he had no regrets when he failed to weigh a fish at the end of the day.
Going into the BASS Elite Series tournament on the Kissimmee Chain, the conventional wisdom was sight-fishing for spawning bass wouldn't play much of a role.
The Kissimmee Chain produced four 20-pound-plus bags Thursday and three Friday. But Kelly Jordon was the only Bassmaster Elite Series angler to have a 20-pound bag days. That jumped Jordan into first place on Day Two of the Citrus Slam, presented by Longhorn.
This week's new venue for the Bassmaster Elite Series, Old Hickory Lake near Nashville, will prove interesting to the pros, but I don't believe it's going to be particularly challenging. For the past two tournaments, the pros have been cranking river channel ledges to catch transition fish, and that should be a strong pattern on this Cumberland River reservoir, as well.
