The pros show off their catches from Day Three on the Mississippi River.
After three days of competition, Aaron Martens was just 7 ounces from victory in last year's Bassmaster Elite Series event on the Mississippi River. Now Martens gets to play out a similar scenario on the same river, and he's going for big bass in the same spot that put him in contention in 2012. And, oddly enough, once again 7 ounces plays into his game.
