The final day of the 2012 Bassmaster Elite Series Power-Pole Slam sets up as Ish vs. Chris.
Kevin VanDam said the lake levels over the last few years have helped produce a strong 5- to 8-pound class of largemouth.
Strong crowds and healthy bass made Day Three at the 2012 Bassmaster Elite Series Power-Pole Slam a memorable event.
Elite Series angler quotes from the weigh-in on Day Three of the Power-Pole Slam on Lake Okeechobee.
With a 13-pound, 9-ounce lead, Ish Monroe could feel settled about his chances in this tournament, but he doesn't at all. See him on the water today as he boats 18 pounds, 2 ounces.
Chris Lane's third day was similar to Ish Monroe's first: He brought in more than 30 pounds on Day Three and made a serious charge for the leader of the tournament.
Of the 50 anglers out fishing Okeechobee today, 49 of them are trying to catch up to leader Ish Monroe, or at least to make the cut for 12 at today's weigh-in.
Our eyes are off the anglers we've been following all day. Steve Wright and James Overstreet are back in the War Room getting their photo galleries ready for the evening.
One of those "friggin' giants" finally showed up for Jeff Kriet. This photo by Mark Zona shows what could be as heavy as a 7-pounder. Kriet lost two fish that were in that same range. If he could have boated those, he would be in the 21-pound or better range with just three fish. Zona said that Kriet made a bait switch, and immediately "bam" the fish bit.
