13 anglers fishing on Sunday

On Saturday, Luke Clausen of Otis Orchards, Wash., was disqualified from the Wheeler Lake event for violation of Bassmaster Elite Series Rule C3. Clausen appealed the decision and, under Rule C23, is allowed to compete on Sunday. In addition, Rule C23 provides that the “next angler below the cut will be invited to compete on the cut day with the clear understanding that any prize money and points he might earn will be contingent upon the outcome of the appeal.” The 13th-place angler, Cliff Crochet of Pierre Part, La., will compete on Sunday. The appeal hearing will be held soon after the conclusion of the event Sunday.
